Jake Gyllenhaal & Gemma Arterton in Prince of Persia



Today, we get our first look at Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, a new video-game-to-film adaptation starring Jake Gyllenhaal. Don't let the fact its based on a video game fool you, though; the pictures, courtesy of Empire Online, look pretty amazing.

Prince of Persia is about an adventurous prince named Dastan (Jake Gyllenhaal) who teams up with Tamina (Gemma Arterton), a feisty and exotic princess, to prevent a villainous nobleman from possessing the Sands of Time, a gift from the gods that can reverse time.

The video game was incredible, so let's hope some of that rubs off on the movie.
