Exploring: Prince of Persia The Sands of Time

The Sands of Time only caught a passing interest from me.  Movies based on games tend to be a hit and miss venture with most of the time being a miss.  Add to that Disney’s involvement and this project had caution written all over it.

That is until I watched the trailer.  Now I'm excited about Prince of Persia.

The effects looks good.  I like the use of a broader variety of weaponry especially the more exotic ones used by the The Hassan sins.  The trailer does a nice job of setting up the back and forth between Dastan and Princess Tamina, even if a bit cliche.

  	 Fandango     - We've Got Your Movie Tickets!I get a Romancing The Stone, Indiana Jones, Tomb Raider kind of vibe for the film.

The Sands of Time hits theaters 21 May 2010.

Prince of Persia: The Dagger and Behind-the-Scenes Featurette


A featurette is out for Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time looking at the dagger and the sands of time that is held within the dagger.

prince-of-persia-sands-of-time-daggerI love the look of the dagger.  The production and effects team went through a lot of effort to keep the dagger's qualities close to those of the period yet giving it some unique twists to help it stand out as special.  These details help to maintain the illusion of reality and are some of the small yet major elements that can make the experience of watching a fantasy tale.

The dagger also has intricate engravings that run the full length of the blade.

It's the details like this that excites me about the film.

Watch the featurette below.
