All video game movie suck. Tis a Universal law. Hey, don’t hate the weatherman… hate the weather. But I’ve always expressed some mild optimism in a Prince of Persia project. There is a vast world with a lot of potential narrative… and the fact that Jerry Bruckheimeris behind it doesn’t hurt its chances either.
Anyway, in a recent interview, Jerry Bruckheimer revealed our first glimpses at Prince of Persia. Thankfully it looks like they’ve gone very large scale with the project (which is really what they needed to do). Jake Gyllenhaal looks fantastic and it appears they’ve put action/adventure high on the priority list for the movie. I think this looks great so far.
Now granted… I’ll hold to my starting assumption that it’ll suck because it is afterall a video game movie… but who knows right? Maybe this will be the one to end the streak?
