Parkour in Ancient Persia? Why not. Check out two new clips from “Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time”, one featuring Jake Gyllenhaal’s character, Prince Dastan as he flees some soldiers using the rooftops of Ancient Persia as his personal obstacle course and the other has him getting too intimate with a sand trap. Gyllenhaal sure looks to be in good shape for the movie. Then again, if someone paid me millions to work out, I’d do it, too. Just sayin’. Anyways, check out the clips below, plus some new images.

Which is why after the prince was tricked by a dying Vizier to unleash the Sands of Time that turns out to destroy a kingdom and transforms its populace into ferocious demons.
