New Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Stills Feature Action and Romance
Posted 03.04.10 by BrentJS
Disney has released two new stills from director Mike Newell's (Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire) Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, a live-action adaptation of the popular Ubisoft video game franchise. The stills seem carefully selected to appeal to the widest possible audience, with one still featuring Prince Dastan (played by Jake Gyllenhaal) in an action-packed fight scene, and the other showing Dastan and Princess Tamina (Gemma Arterton) in a more romantic scene.
Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time takes place in a fantastical version of medieval Persia in which magic and sorcery are real. Young Prince Dastan is tricked by the evil Vizier Nizam (Sir Ben Kingsley) into unleashing the Sands of Time, a devastating power that destroys the kingdom and turns its denizens into demonic creatures. Driven by guilt, Prince Dastan teams with Princess Tamina to find the Dagger of Time, the only item capable of restoring the sands to the hourglass from which they came, thereby reversing the terrible curse that he helped unleash.
