New Prince of Persia movie posters and pics July 22nd, 2009

We had a sneak pre­view of a Prince of Per­sia movie poster via a shop win­dow reflec­tion in Con­fes­sions of a Shopa­holic, said poster does not resem­ble the oddly futur­is­tic ones recently released. The intense black and white posters are gar­nished with strong typog­ra­phy that I don’t rate highly — it feels some­how that they have missed the point? “Deny the future”. Although some are argu­ing that this stops the movie look­ing like a video game to movie adap­ta­tion — it is sleek and slick and could help the film find its audience.

Expect a Ben Kings­ley poster shortly, not our first view­ing, but this one is par­tic­u­larly men­ac­ing! Scoop via Com­ing Soon.

It is not SOT. SOT main color theme is blue.
The color and the amor look like the 2nd part War­rior Within. I don’t know if they want to merge SOT and War­rior Within. Why they can’t make POP movie like LOTR tri-ology.
I’m afraid this movie will suck like Dragon Ball DE-evolution.

This is very wrong and it’s such a shame because a film like this can help break stereo­types about Middle-Easterners, Ira­ni­ans in par­tic­u­lar, but NONE of these char­ac­ters are played by Iranians/Persians.

This shows us how eth­no­cen­tric Hol­ly­wood is being again. Just like with Black­face (when White actors played Black char­ac­ters) we are see­ing Per­sian­face in this movie. It’s clear that the film­mak­ers sim­ply want to MAKE MONEY and they don’t care about rep­re­sent­ing the Per­sian com­mu­nity at all. They’re just EXPLOITING.

Prince of Per­sia? More like Impos­tor of Per­sia. Read more of my thoughts here:

Yep totally agree with Du, it will suck…

Meh August 2nd, 2009

THat looks SO much more like War­rior Within thans Sands of TIme…

I have noth­ing against the actors, I’m wait­ing to see, but if they merge my pre­cious Sands of Time with War­rior Within I’m gonna kill someone!

I srsly dis­agree >.<

I have high hopes for POP but deep within I feel it will be shat­tered. It does not feel like the POP I came to know through the game. Maybe, just maybe they;ll remake it like they did the Hulk. I’m expect­ing a disappointment.

i have recently bought “war­rior within” and have all the games.… but it looks like they arent just doing the sands of time…it looks more like war­rior within. i mean its a good game but it may con­fuse peo­ple in the movie. but i dont know if the movie will be as good as the game cuz it doesnt really look like its going to fol­low the actu­all story line. but other than that the actors i think are per­fect for it.

Eh. That’s Hol­ly­wood. Per­son­ally, the only set-back to this movie that I have is that it’s being dis­trib­uted by Dis­ney, but that’s only mostly because of the crap they’ve been spew­ing, lately. Jake Gyl­len­hal proved to be an AMAZING actor in the phe­nom­e­nal film Don­nie Darko, which is the only film I’ve seen with him in it, and I haven’t seen the act­ing for the other cast mem­bers, so I’ll hold judg­ment. I think we should all remain cau­tiously opti­mistic, unless you want it to be a box-office bomb and some­thing the stu­dio doesn’t give a crap about like Drag­onball Evo­lu­tion.
Maybe the War­rior Within look is just the look they thought was coolest, so they stuck it in there. I, per­son­ally, like the Two Thrones take, myself, but eh. As they say, to each his own.

I’m with Tasunara. :) I think that so far the color theme is off, and the story is changed… But that doesn’t nec­ces­sar­ily mean it’ll be ter­ri­ble. It’d be impos­si­ble to do things in movies the same way it’s done in a game. We’ll just wait and see what hap­pens with it.

BTW, the game isn’t exactly a per­fect Per­sian rep­re­sen­ta­tion either. And the top poster I think is ok, but it would be nice if a few of those weren’t black and white.

Dude you gays can say wat ju want to.there are going to be 3 movies.sand of time.warrier with in.and the two throns.or wat ever ist name is​.my pion is.a game should stay a game.not to be formed in a movie​.as yu all know to play the game you need som skills​.so do all the 55 spe­sial atacks.and if ubisoft are mak­ing the movi​.it will be the same as the game.
