Empire magazine (great bathroom reading material) has the exclusive debut of two new UK posters for the Jerry Bruckheimer-produced adaptation of the Prince of Persia videogame series.
The one with Jake Gyllenhaal is pretty damn spiffy, I dig the sephia-esque color tone but other one featuring Gemma Arterton makes me want to buy perfume. Don’t get me wrong she is looking sexy as hell but it’s too reminiscent of high end fashion magazine. Even though these posters are a bit too artsy the ad campaign is setting up the expectation that we might actually get a good movie that’s based off a video game. (knock on wood). Of course we will be able to gauge the film a bit better once we see some actual footage.
‘Prince of Persia’ tells the story of Dastan (Gyllenhaal), the heir to the king’s throne who teams with a mysterious princess (Gemma Arterton) to recover the Sands of Time from the villainous Nizam (Sir Ben Kingsley)
‘Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time’ comes out on May 28th, 2010
