Walt Disney Pictures has released the second full trailer for the upcoming video game adaptation Prince of Persia, starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Gemma Arterton and Sir Ben Kingsley. This new trailer provides a bit of new footage, but mixes it with healthy helpings of previously seen footage. New or old, it all seems to be cut together in a way that makes this film feel exciting, even grand. It’s something we should expect from director Mike Newell, whose trailers for Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire made it look rather exciting as well. I will let you do the math from there. Below you will find the film’s synopsis and the new trailer, courtesy of MySpace.
Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time is in theaters May 28, 2010.
Set in medieval Persia, the story of an adventurous prince who teams up with a rival princess to stop an angry ruler from unleashing a sandstorm that could destroy the world.
