Walt Disney Pictures has released a new movie trailer for Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time on IGN. The new trailer incorporates some of the new special effects footage from the Superbowl spot and new “Creating of an Epic” featurette, as well as a lot of never before seen sequences.
I’m still not digging the over-the-top voice over from Gemma Arterton, and am a bit worried about the story. But the action sequences are looking bigger, more elaborate, and more epic with every new spot. I’m also really loving the rewinding time effect. I’ll have a chance to see this film in a couple weeks, and I promise to report back with my thoughts afterwards. You can watch it now, embedded after the jump. As always, leave your thoughts in the comments below.
