The images are cool and iconic, but what’s with the completely personality-less font? Seems entirely un-POP.
Am I reading too much into things when I notice the little snake designs on the Prince’s chestplate look like ye olde family sigil from Shadow & the Flame?
Oooh… very nice. I’ll be seeing this for sure.
Really cool pics, and Jake Gyllenhall (sp) actually looks pretty good as the Prince.. I think that font (and composition of text) would be more suited to a modern corporate website however, it looks really out of place and is unfortunately the first thing that I noticed.
Based on the commentary on kotaku, people are guessing the font choices etc. are so that it doesn’t come out as a “video game movie”..
Still, the blocky sans serif type does seem a bit out of place (too “modern”), and the walt disney logo sticks out like a sore thumb.
Nice grayscale+red trickery though.
Love the tagline. Jake looks iconic. Shouldn’t one of those swords have a sand tank?
“What the font!?” was my first reaction, though.
i’m still wondering why you chose to have the prince wear the armor from warrior within, and i still guess it’s because it simply looks better. i’m hoping for a teaser trailer soon, c’mon jordan, tease us a little more. maybe a little taste of the effects of the sands of time, not just the prince
This may also be of interest: =)
Gyllenhaal does look pretty awesome. In that picture he has all the charisma of a young Omar Sharif.
Kingsley looks a little bit like Peter Sellers in Blake Edwards’s “The Party” (1968), no?
Great pictures, Jordan.
The font sucks. Totally out of place.
