The “Prince of Persia” crew are really pumping out the behind-the-scenes featurette for the movie. Then again, since they’re trying to make themselves a multi-billion dollar franchise here, I suppose shelling out the cash for a dozen or so featurettes ain’t no big thang. The latest two focuses on the film’s leads, Jake Gyllenhaal as buff Prince Dastan and Gemma Arterton as seductive Princess Tamina. The second featurette is all about Princess Tamina, who unlike actress Gemma Arterton, probably doesn’t giggle like a schoolgirl in the movie from what I’ve seen. Mind you, Gemma Arterton giggling as she talks about her Disney Princess outfits is very hot.
Set in medieval Persia, the story of an adventurous prince who teams up with a rival princess to stop an angry ruler from unleashing a sandstorm that could destroy the world. 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. In his effort to save his own kingdom and redeem his fatal mistake, it’s up to the prince and the princess to return the sands to the hourglass by using the Dagger of Time, which also gives him a limited control over the flow of time.
