Disney and Bruckheimer put out a new trailer for The Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time recently, and it’s posted below the break courtesy of D’toid.
It’s a longer version of the one shown during the Super Bowl, and towards the end it starts to descend into a bit of a chick flick with the “interaction” between the Prince and his lady friend. Seems par for the course with just about any movie these days – to make a movie releasable it has to have a love interest to draw the ladies in, we reckon.
Anyway, enough of our bitchy opinions – the movie does look like it will be a massive epic. Good for Bruckheimer. He needs the money you know. Poor fella.
It’s out May 28, with the new PoP: The Forgotten Sands game being released May 18 and 20 in the US and Europe. Wii users get the original game with the new one for free.

During the BMO Capital Markets conference in New York today, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot stated that the firm has “very high hopes” for the Prince of Persia movie, and that it could “maybe be stronger than Pirates of the Caribbean.
“[The film] will show what a video game property can do in the industry”, said Guillemot. “What we hear, is that it could maybe be stronger than Pirates of the Caribbean which did 2.7 billion dollars worldwide.”
Jerry Bruckheimer has hinted that the film could be turned into a franchise providing the first one does well – but saying it could outperform Pirates is a tall order.
The second installment in the series, Dead Man’s Chest, is number seven on the All-Time USA Box office charts, as it raked in $423,032,628 in sales. The third, At World’s End, is the 27th top grossing film of all time with $309,404,152, and the original is at number 30 with $305,388,685.
Add all that together and it comes to the grand total of $God, with DVD sales and overseas figures not being taken into account.
Granted, Guillemot’s likely referring to the first film in the series, but $2.7 billion dollars worldwide may be hard to beat.

Yeah, you’re probably thinking: “Isn’t that the whole point of a movie trailer?” Really though, how many trailers have coaxed you into actual excitement about a videogame-based movie? Yeah. This Prince of Persia teaser is a landmark event in the histories of both film and gaming.
Shame about Jake Gyllenhaal’s face, though. We thought real actors were supposed to be more expressive than videogame characters.
Check out the full thing after the break!

Is the upcoming movie not going to be your fill of Prince of Persia? Don’t worry, Ubisoft’s got you covered. How? By announcing a new PoP game in the spring of next year, according to a report from Neoseeker.
The news was apparently confirmed at a trailer preview event for the movie at Bruckheimer studios very recently.
The report says:
“Our last bit of news is a juicy one: Ubisoft will be announcing a new Prince of Persia game in the spring, according to the team, but it’s not their place to give out any details.”
Lovely. Go mad, peeps.

Entertainment Tonight spoke with Jake Gyllenhaal on the set of Prince of Persia in Morocco and its souds as if he would be keen to do a sequel if asked.
Of course, no one says “no” to Jerry Bruckheimer. No one. Right, Johnny Depp?
The full interview, of sorts, is posted after the break and it’s actually pretty decent.
Nice scenery anyway.
Movie’s out May 28, 2010 in the US and UK.

We have been putting this off all afternoon, but we have finally given into internet pressure along with the malaise of a slow news Saturday.
Thus, we now present you with the the fist picture from the actual Prince of Persia movie not taken by a paparazzi stalking Jake Gyllenhaal from the sideline.
Hope you are pleased. Sorry if it is a bit fuzzy.
Still, when all is said and done, we still prefer this guy to a shirtless Jake.
Blame Entertainment Weekly.

Jerry Bruckheimer inked a deal with MTV Games back in 2007, and the company is hoping Bruckheimer’s expertise in getting women viewers for his television shows and movies will spill-over into gaming.
Van Toffler, president of MTV Networks wants Bruckheimer to take MTV “out of its comfort zone of rhythmic gaming like The Beatles: Rock Band” and attract more females.
“I hope that Jerry takes us to more adventurous places around storytelling in gaming,” Toffler told GamesRadar. “I see more of a connection to women coming to gaming as being a spark for Jerry Bruckheimer’s style of storytelling coming to gaming. Gaming is really starting to explode with women, particularly story-driven games like The Sims. I think Jerry has managed to bring both men and women into his storytelling from Pirates of the Caribbean to National Treasure.
“He does a great blend of action in storytelling and moving narrative forward.”
On that note, narrative is why Bruckheimer thinks that eventually movie/game adaptions will work.
“I couldn’t tell you that,” he said when asked why adaptions bomb at the box office. “They just haven’t quite captured the imagination of the audience yet, but they will. I think it will definitely happen, whether we do it or other people do it.”
Bruckheimer is behind the Prince of Persia movie adaption, which should draw a few women to the theater, seeing as Jake Gyllenhaal will be shirtless most of the way through it.

Lego game rumors are always out and about, and today is no exception, with news emerging of a Prince of Persia line of toys based on the upcoming movie in 2010.
When Disney announced that Lego would be releasing the toys, it only made sense that gaming sites would be buzzing about the possibility of a game connection.
Joystiq’s quick to point out that Warner Bros owned Traveller’s Tales has used licenses from other movie studios in the past, so it could be a possibility in the future.
Keep your fingers crossed.

Here. Fair play, Jake with his top off and a daft haircut pretty much does look like the Prince. As you’d expect, really.
Movie’s not out until 2010, unfortunately.
