    The newest trailer for the video game turned movie was released by Disney today. I'm not familiar with the video game, but the trailer looks like it's going to be a pretty kick ass movie. As far as I'm concerned, it's tough to go wrong with Disney, Bruckheimer and Gyllenhall! icon_smile.gif

    Thoughts?

    I actually love the video games. Haven't played in a while, but the movie looks close to the real thing. And no, can't go wrong with Jake!

    The only video game to movie that will probably be good, will be Metal Gear. Since the creator of the series who wanted to originally be in the movie business, will be helping with the movie ha.

    Prince of Persia was a good game, I hope they actually take it all seriously icon_sad.gif

    While most video game movies aren't all that great, the fact that Disney is behind this seems pretty comforting.

    And really, with Gyllenhaal, all they have to do is dangle him in front of me and I'll pay the price of a movie ticket . .

    Hmmmmm... I don't really know what to think. I'll have to see it, but I do agree that whenever they make video games into movies they never end up taking them seriously or being that great.
    I just remember playing Prince of Persia when I was little and when it looked liked this:

    Have't played the new versions. They look good tho.

    I've been waiting for this for a year. I love the games and when I found out Jake was going to be cast I was even more ecstatic.

    Im with everyone, Im skeptical about how good the movie will be. the games were awesome and I beat all of em. Loved the most recent one. It was like a moving piece of gorgeous art on an HDTV:

    the special effects look amazing! I'm excited, the story sounds like it could turn lame, but the games were great, so I'd give it a chance

    True that. I read somewhere that when Jake found out about him dying that he took it very very hard.

    Always been a big fan of Prince of Persia.
    A little disappointed with somethings after watching the trailer, but I'm sure they will release better trailers in the future.

    I was really really really scared of this movie (almost as scared as when I heard the World of Warcraft movie was going to be in live action) but the trailer looks like win and its done by the peeps that did pirates (I think). I'm crossin' my fingers.

    They managed to get Ben Kingsley as the obligatory English (albeit Persianized) baddie, so there must be some decent acting in it too.
