The first trailer for Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time won’t be released for another 2 weeks, however ComingSoon got the chance to see it early and they wrote down a description of what they saw:
The two-minute trailer starts off with a glimpse of the mythical land of Persia, which looks stunning, and then a brief look at the dagger that’s enclosed in a glass case.
“Have you ever wondered how you could have found such a treasure? The gods have a plan for you. A destiny,” we hear the princess saying as short clips of the scenes mentioned above play on the screen.
We then see Gyllenhaal jumping off a cliff and a few seconds later climbing a wall with arrows as his stepping stones. Someone shoots at him and he turns around looking nervous but annoyed as well.
“The sand turns back time,” the audience is told a few seconds into the trailer. “Only the holder of the dagger is aware of what’s happening.”
A quick clip is is shown of the prince holding the dagger and turning into sand.
“Only the dagger can unlock the sands of time. There are those who would use this power to destroy the world,” Arterton’s character explained. “The only way to stop this Armageddon is to take the dagger to the secret guardian temple.”
Although the footage we saw was brief, which made it difficult to see where the story is going, the rivalry and tension between the prince and princess was very clear. Their witty banter was entertaining and well-written.

The film actually finished filming last year so they’ve had months to get the footage together and finish the effects. Mike Newell (Goblet of Fire) is the director and Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time will be hitting the big screen next May.
