With Alice In Wonderland only days away from been released, Disney’s attention will focus on Prince of Persia movie which from the trailer is action packed and full of some decent transitional scenes with the actual sands used very effectively. If you are a fan of the video game you do see scenes that pay homage to the character (ala jumping around rooftops), though the overall look of the movie does look impressive (story, script, characters) this movie has a good chance of been the first videogame movie to be sucessfull commerically & critically.
Watch the trailer below and Prince Of Persia:Sands Of Time will be in U.K & Irish (USA too) cinemas from May 28th.
