Check out the photo above. That's Prince Dastan, played by the Jake Gyllenhaal, and Princess Tamina (Gemma Arterton) from the upcoming Prince of Persia movie, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time. Dastan and Tamina have just escaped from something wet, and are drying off on their horse. The flick is being directed by Mike Newell and produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and hits theaters on May 28th, 2010.
As with all video game movies, I will assume that this one will be bad. As much as I'd love to have hope, my optimism has been crushed so many times in the past, that I now take the default position that any movie adaptation of a video game will be terrible. Experience is on my side. I will conceded, however, that Gemma Arterton is hot. What do you think? Is the Prince of Persia series just cinematic enough to buck the trend of bad game-based-films?
