Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time

The first trailer for Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time hit the internet today, check it out below!

The computer game adaptation directed by Mike Newell (Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire), see's Jake Gyllenhaal as Prince Dastan, a rogue who is trying desperately to protect The Sands of Time - a mysterious dagger which has the ability to reverse the flow of time.

The Jerry Bruckheimer produced blockbuster also stars Gemma Arterton as Princess Tamina, a reluctant love interest for Dastan and Ben Kingsley as Nizam the evil nobleman who is also chasing the time altering McGuffin.

The trailer suggests that Newell has remained pretty faithful to the source video games - there's plenty of aerobatic manoeuvres and swordplay. Gyllenhaal certainly looks the part, however is it me or can you sense the powers that be attemptnig to recapture some of that Pirates of the Caribbean magic?

It could go either way - really good or really bad. Guess we'll just have to wait for May 28th 2010 to find out.
