CHICAGO – After the first image of extras surfaced on Oct. 15, 2008 for the movie adaptation “Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time,” we now have the first video footage thanks to Entertainment Tonight’s willingness to go all the way to Morocco to get it.

“Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time” star Jake Gyllenhaal has some decidedly modest and sarcastic fun in his interview with Entertainment Tonight’s Thea Andrews while the camera reveals to us the first live-action shots from the film. You can watch the video segment below now.

“I guess I’ve gotten buff,” Gyllenhaal told Entertainment Tonight. “There’s a lot acrobatics in the movie – a lot of running up walls and jumping on things. It requires muscularity, but it requires a lot of aerobic ability, too.”

Some screenshots from the Entertainment Tonight video segment have been published by Movie Chronicles. Entertainment Tonight describes the plotline for the film, which will come on the heels of the wildly successful video game, with these words:

The story finds Jake Gyllenhaal as Dastan: a young, Persian prince who must join forces with the beautiful and feisty princess Tamina (played by “Quantum of Solace” Bond girl Gemma Arterton) to prevent a villainous nobleman (Ben Kingsley) from possessing the Sands of Time.

The Sands of Time is a gift from the gods that can reverse time and allow its possessor to rule the world.

“Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time,” which stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Gemma Arterton and Ben Kingsley, comes from “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire” director Mike Newell and “Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End” producer Jerry Bruckheimer. The film is slated to open on May 28, 2010.

  • Knick, The

    CHICAGO – Cinemax’s ominous new series “The Knick” is a hospital drama that’s very much in the voice of its director, Steven Soderbergh. Set in New York City at the turn of the 20th century, the series presents the medical world as it inches closer and closer to modernity, while making contemporary parallels to the desperate hustle by surgery room clients and their doctors alike regarding treatment of the human body. What has changed in the politics of medicine? What hasn’t?
