    He is so very HOT!

  • Meg

    Looks gorgeous. Looks like a good movie. I can’t wait to give it a try.

  • reban

    Pirates of the Carribean… with sand.

  • Olivia

    Jake’s been bearding 2 1/2 years for this? Jake is showcasing his standard ernest expression or his annoyed expression-both of which he displays regurlarly on his staged coffee runs with Witherbeard. Was Jerry Bruckheimer trying to make a Pirates of the Carribean in the desert? Cause Jake is no Johnny Depp.

  • Jen

    The movie look mediocre. It’ll make a lot of money, but it has no substance.

  • Kate

    Mummy 4

  • Bliss

    OMG. I almost didn’t recognize him. He is SO hot! But this looks like all those Mummy/Scorpion King movies with the Lord of the Rings stuff thrown in except it’s a dagger.But Jake is definitely no Frodo! LOL!!! I’ll see it just to check out his hot body. His accent sounded cool, too. I just saw him in Day After Tomorrow and he sure looks different.

  • awful

    blah, agree w/other posters: pirates of carribean w/sand.

  • not sexy

    Jake’s hair looks terrible in the movie.
    Please CGI Jake’s hair! lol

  • LOL

    A waterless POTC with lots and lots of flying floating swirling sand.

  • eva

    NICEEE! jake gyllenhaal and ben kingsley!! woooooo

  • Crest vs. Pantene

    The Prince was so busy brushing, flossing and whitening his perfectly straight teeth at least twice a day that he never had time to wash his hair.

  • Voice-over

    They dubbed Jake’s voice ?

  • meh

    Looks like a mix of Mummy, Scorpion King, POTC and 300. Yawn, I won’t be seing this.

  • allspice30

    Looks like Orlando Bloom from Kingdom of Heaven.

  • yey

    I dont think the character suits him, he looks out of place in the movie.

  • velcrodots

    Yep, POTC with sand.
    Sorry, Jakey. I’ll stick with Donnie Darko

  • Melissa

    Can’t believe Jake gave up being a serious actor and what seemed like being a nice guy to star in a stupid movie like this and be associated with Reese. Maybe when he gets all the sand out of his ears, he will come to his senses.

  • Pattycake

    Beautiful looking film and Jake’s accent is perfect. But the dialogue!?! Did Disney confuse this with one of their cartoons?

  • j

    it looks really good. i dont think its like pirates though. & why does he need to speak in an accent?

  • marcia

    Jake is fenomenal! I am looking foward to see this movie.

    Jake rock it!

  • Lesley Smarts

    Wow, this looks really cool. Awesome game!

  • Elle

    Looks good. But the girl in the movie is annoying.

  • dollhouse

    Whatever….typical hollywood picking a white guy to play a character who ISN’T suppose to be white. He’s suppose to look persian…so they pick gyllenhaal for the role? dumb.

  • mia

    meh, i was underwhelmed by the trailer, but i’ll probably watch it.

  • LuckyL

    Whatever voice he had to conjure up for this film saved him. His normal voice would have been too unmanly and made a full of this great video game character. I would have loved to see a hot, unknown and talented Persian/Iranian actor play this role, however. I wish the girl could have at least been Persian/Iranian. Oh well. It looks great and I will be going to see it. They did a fine job.

  • grind

    um but aren’t persians considered white people?

  • LuckyL

    um but aren’t persians considered white people?
    So you consider Middle Easterns, Egyptians, etc. a part of the white race?

  • LuckyL

    What am I saying, white isn’t even a race.

  • ewww

    Major fail
    won’t be spending my money on this one
    Jake looks ridiculous

  • sam

    Naturally..The prince of PERSIA should have a British accent. It was totally necessary for Jake to phase out his American accent to sound more Persian..oops..i mean – more British..

  • lisawisa

    Persians/Iranians are not “white” just because SOME of them have fair skin. The majority are brown in complexion, but range from dark to very fair, but no, they are not “white” like how you would consider a European to be “white”

    I think they could have picked another, more ethnic looking actor to play this role. Gyllenhaal still looks like a hick in persian clothes.

  • ck_always


    Oh really? How ironic ..those are some of the biggest hollywood hits in the last 5 or so years.

  • saywhat..

    OMGoodness…. Why? Why? WHY? is the a movie. and what in the world happened to Jake..

    Sad on so many levels..

  • JakeyJake

    I’m sorry I’m being shallow, but I couldn’t care less right now. JAKE IS SOO HOT! Getting better every day! Yummy!

    Btw the movie does look crappy. But then again, who cares?

  • I n F a m o u s l y C o o l

    ahahahahahahahahah.. still the worst casting in movie history. ahahahahahahahahahahahaha.. poor guys career will never recover from this. after years of trying to be leading man and.. trying to get into a superhero movie he does THIS! ahahahahahahahahaha.. oh bubble boy.

  • mickey

    This looks bad and the trailer is boring…I couldn’t even watch all of it.

  • Zen

    Boring. Maybe this movie is for kids? Jake looks awful. Did ancient Persians talk with a British accent?!

  • vmars111

    Yes yes, Gyllenhaal is literally gay and all, but the bigger question is: WHY IS EVERYONE SPEAKING WITH AN ENGLISH ACCENT??? Are they speaking in that accent too in the games?

  • POTC wannabe

    It looks bad and very cheesy. I agree that Jake is miscast.
    I wont be able to take him seriously after this.

  • No thanks

    Meh…. more POS than POTC… haha.

  • ^_^

    More POOP than POP

  • nams

    holy mackerel. that looks cool. i hope the movie is as good as the trailer!

  • syl

    prince of persia is not supposed to be a movie for kids !!
    the dialogues suck !!!

  • liverwurst

    Looks entertaining, and that’s why I to movies! Jake is looking deliscious as always

  • liverwurst


  • meh

    Jake looks terrible, script looks even worse.

  • eli

    @dollhouse: PERSIANS ARE WHITE…educate yourself…!

  • You never know…..

    I feel sorry for Jake he doesn’t really fit the bill to play this kind of role bless him but he might just surprise me and others.

    Yeah, this has been done on so many levels you can see from the trailer. It should be a movie that excites the audience but for some strange reason it just doesn’t excite me…….I’m not thinking I must see this more like maybe once on DVD rented?

    I have never found this guy sexy to me (tries to hard and fails) he just doesn’t have the X factor like the late great River Phoenix and Heath Ledger or the current Brad Pitt, Johnny Depp, Will Smith, Sean Penn, Tom Cruise and the new Channing Tatum, Chris Pine etc (list could go on) but let’s see….

    I agree with comments re no Persian/Iranian actors to play the role – shame or a better actor? He has done some pretty good work in the past, so hope he proves me wrong but not excited at the moment with this trailer.

    Some really cool movies coming out in 2010 like Dear John, Iron Man 2, Alice in Wonderland, Clash of the Titans, The Wolfman etc not this until DVD.

    Hey, it might be hit though just because it came off a video game…You never know…….

  • dollhouse

    Um….No they are not. You think the president of Iran considers himself to be a White man? How about NO. They are not WHITE in the Causasian sense, but “white” as in SOME of them are very fair skin because of their turkish descendents. Get a clue and educate YOURSELF.

    Thus, Jake playing this role is DUMB.
