'Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time' Synopsis

From the team that brought the “Pirates of the Caribbean” trilogy to the big screen, Walt Disney Pictures and Jerry Bruckheimer Films present Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, an epic action-adventure set in the mystical lands of Persia. A rogue prince (Jake Gyllenhaal) reluctantly joins forces with a mysterious princess (Gemma Arterton) and together, they race against dark forces to safeguard an ancient dagger capable of releasing the Sands of Time—a gift from the gods that can reverse time and allow its possessor to rule the world.

Directed by Mike Newell (“Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire”) with a cast that includes Sir Ben Kingsley and Alfred Molina, and a screenplay by Boaz Yakin and Doug Miro & Carlo Bernard from a screen story by Jordan Mechner. Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time hits theaters Memorial Day Weekend, 2010.

Director Mike Newell’s credits include “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire,” “Donnie Brasco,” starring Al Pacino and Johnny Depp, “Pushing Tin,” “Four Weddings and a Funeral” and “Dance With A Stranger.”

Among numerous other awards and nominations, Jerry Bruckheimer Films have been honored with 41 Academy Award® nominations, with six wins, and 23 Golden Globe® nominations, with four wins.

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time was filmed near Marrakesh, Ouarzazate and Erfoud, Morocco, as well as hugely scaled sets constructed at Pinewood Studios in Great Britain.

    Need to admit I don't like Jake, the main actor, but he did a great job with this movie. I liked it a lot.

    erh, Jake Gylenhall? Okey worst casting scenario #1. He doesn't even look Persian. Come on!!!! How many more bad castings are there going to be. Video game movie adaptations are going downhill because of this sort of thing. Booo

    This is possibly my favourite gaming franchise after Tomb Raider (I'm not counting Bioshock even though it's my favourite game ever, but until I play the 2nd I can't call it a franchise now can I).

    Tomb Raider was a monumental disapointment of a movie, from the standpoint of a very old fan. I seriously hope this one doesn't make me go through the same pain again. :P
