Prince of Persia Trailer Spins You Right 'Round Jake Gyllenhaal


We'll make this fast: the trailer for Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time has hit YouTube in what's almost certainly a leak, given the lack of fanfare and terrible quality. So if you want to go see it, check it out now! No magic dagger can grant you the opportunity to reverse time should you not be fleet of foot enough. (UDPATE: It's now online for real -- check it out after the jump.)

Meanwhile, how is it?

Well, there is a lot of exposition, and a lot of revolving camerawork. Do you want to know what Jake Gyllenhaal looks like from every angle? (To study his prosthetic abs, natch.) Well, you'll have quite the opportunity to, as Persia seems determined to circle around the actor countless times. You can tell it's adapted from a video game -- specifically, the part at the beginning where you're learning how to orient the camera.

VERDICT: Pass the Persian dramamine.
