Second Prince of Persia trailer online

PrinceofPersia-Gyllenhaal.jpgThere's another trailer for Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time online, and while it isn't hugely different from the first we saw, it does carry a slightly different cut.

However I have to say now I've seen it a second time, I'm a little less inspired by it, in fact I have to say now I'm a little deflated after watching it, I wonder if my first thought of this being a Mummy copy going to hold true, just with more effects.

While Jake Gyllenhaal is playing the Brendan Fraser role, Gemma Arterton seems to be playing the Rachel Weisz role.

Think on that and watch either of the trailers again. It's The Mummy isn't it, just with more effects. What, am I wrong?

Then I read the plot, and thinking of the bumbling hero who accidentally creates the whole mess they need to clean up, and then in the end saves the day, it all sounds rather close.

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.

Let's see that second trailer, and then see what you think of the whole comparison.
