Prince of Persia movie trailer pops up

See Jake and Gemma go at it. So to speak.

A new trailer for the Prince of Persia movie has appeared on YouTube.

It shows the eponymous hero, played by Jake Gyllenhaal, running, jumping and generally swishing his sword about. He's got an English accent, by the sounds of things.

Also featured are Gemma Arterton, who plays sidekick Tamina, and Ben Kingsley, who must be a baddie judging by that beard.

Battles of Prince of Persia

Because Battles of Prince of Iran wouldn't sell nearly as well.

The DS offers some excellent opportunities for innovative reinventions of successful licences. It lends itself towards inventive slants on well-known names. With that in mind, I'd like to present a few pitches for game ideas, in the hope that fat publishers will hand me wads from their vast pockets filled with money.

Tomb Raider: Leap of Faith. The extremely popular Lara Croft is back! And she's bringing with her all the excitement of everyone's favourite party game, Twister! That's right - the DS's unique touch-screen finally provides the possibility of body-contorting interactive family fun, brought to life in the Tomb Raider universe in this brand new text-based adventure!

Splinter Cell: Fire In The Hole. Sam Fisher's awesome adventures have so far explored the dizzying worlds of international espionage. But what about when Sam has time off? Finally this missing portion of his life is brought to players through the magic of TV's Wipeout. In an exclusive deal, Paul Daniels provides his voice for the episodes of everyone's favourite daytime quiz that Sam will watch from the comfort of his armchair. Using the DS's microphone, players will be able to create Sam's voice, uselessly shouting answers at the pre-recorded footage on the screen. Sometimes while wearing those green goggles.
