Here it is, the trailer for Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time:
I think I know why Jake Gyllenhaal was cast and not someone like Christian Bale. Unlike Gyllenhaal, Bale, method actor that he is, would take the time to actually learn Farsi instead of speaking in some Englishesque accent. As Michael K pointed out: “… every one in the olden times spoke with British accents. That’s today’s history lesson from the historians of Hollywood.” Why not speak with your own accent or actually learn Farsi? I mean it’s bad enough, as I addressed earlier, that you are playing an Iranian – pardon, Persian – but the fact that you are going to pass off being an Iranian with that fake English accent is just adding insult to injury.
The “The Sands of Time” bit in the title indicates to me that this moving is already crying for a sequel. This means that I cannot see this movie in the theater, if at all. I cannot help it get money and produce some sequel titled Prince of Persia: Get Me Dat God Dammit Espoon, or Prince of Persia: The Birth of Nuclear Energy, or Prince of Persia: Hand-Woven.
Besides, boboness aside, it looks terrible.
