Empire has debuted two new UK posters for the upcoming Disney action adventure Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, which features Jake Gyllenhaal and Gemma Arterton as the Prince and his rival princess Tamina.
In the film — which is based on a classic video game created by Jordan Mechner — these two sexy, sand-blown kids of royalty team up to go after the Sands of Time, a time-controlling artifact held by the evil Nizam (Ben Kingsley). Directed by Mike Newell (Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire), Prince of Persia will be producer Jerry Bruckheimer’s next potential franchise, right in line with Pirates of the Caribbean. Fans of the video game will note that the very vogue vision of Jake Gyllenhaal in the first poster on the left is very similar to the digital prince who lives in the Ubisoft video game. As for Arterton in the poster on the right… well, if looks could kill.
Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time is scheduled to hit theaters on May 28, 2010.
What do you think of this first batch of posters?
