Prince of Persia movie trailer

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time in HD

Trailer Park | MySpace Video

The first official trailer for theĀ Prince of Persia movie (opening in theaters May 28, 2010) is now online.

There are some bootleg low-res versions bouncing around the net, despite the best-laid plans of Mouse and men. Accept no substitutes. The hi-def version looks better.

I got to see the trailer in a movie theater for the first time last week in San Francisco and L.A., when producer Jerry Bruckheimer and I did Q&As with journalists. It was quite a thrill seeing it on a big screen with a theater full of people.

There’s actually one line of dialog in the movie trailer that’s also in the homemade game-footage trailer John August and I used to pitch the project to Jerry and Disney six years ago. Which is funny, because the line’s not actually in the movie (at least I don’t think it is). No prize for spotting it.

    wow this trailer is just amazing. i like how pieces of warrior within and the two thrones are in the movie. the prince’s wardrobe mirrors warrior within, and the rewind of the dagger shows what looks like part of the dark prince from the two thrones.
    this is really one of the only great video game to movie adaptations i’ve ever seen.

    I’m really happy that you managed to reach your dream after all these years, a big Hollywood movie! The fact that you built it up from your hobby makes for a fantastic story.

    However, I hope once this is all done, you’ll take a sabbatical and write a game the proper way again – by yourself, in a room with a computer. Karateka and Prince of Persia weren’t only good for their storytelling and technology, they were real both rare gems of game design. I know it will never happen, but I wish you would take a year and make another single-authored game.

    I enjoyed the newer Price of Persia games, and I loved The Last Express, but these games with large teams of designers never quite have the clarity of vision that single-authored games (or novels, or songs) have.

    Wow, I’m really impressed, I have been a fan of Prince for such a long time and the trailer shows that the movie does capture the dynamics of the charaters and the story which I was afraid wouldn’t come across. I guess with you being the screenwiter, I shouldn’t have been worried! Thank you for the story, the games, and now the movie. May is such a long way away.

    I’m with Bennett, please write more.

    congratulations for such a high profile movie release of Prince of Persia. It seems it will be one of the few vg-based movies that do the actual game justice.

    Best, Bjoern

    Wo-ho!! That looked amazing! And looks like it’s gonna do justice to the Trilogy. Cant wait till May. Oh, and there was speculation that Jake wouldn’t do well in this role. The trailer totally rubbishes that.

    The Trailer looks great and even though it has already been said I really liked seeing the tie-ins to the other games in the series like the daggertail at 45 seconds. Anyways great job to you, Jerry, and disney.

    Hello Jordan

    I’ve a player of almost all your games since I’m 8 y/o when I first saw Prince Of Persia for DOS (the 1) and the PoP2 WaF— I’ve been always thrilled on the way the history develops to make the way until the end and win the game.

    What I’m wondering right now is, when you began developing POP (the 1st POP); did you ever imagine your game to become the complex world you’ve created and the movie you’re about to publish un May’10?
    What’s your feelings about that your wonderful idea becoming a major movie?
    Did you ever thought about it when you were 15 or 18 y/o?

    Johan R, you should read from the Old Journals (linked at the top of the site) to find out what some of his thoughts were at the time.

    Hi, i started play POP only after Sands of time in 2003. I played all versions of pop and i love this game. In 2008 I heard that disney is planing a pop movie, since then i waiting this movie.
    When i first saw this trailer a few month ego, I was very glad. The movie cg effects are looking great.

    Good luck to you Jordan….
