The popular video game series "Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time" was adapted for the big screen in a sweeping fantasy adventure starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Gemma Arterton.
The setting is sixth century Persia. A nefarious nobleman covets the Sands of Time, a legendary gift from the gods that allows its possessor to turn back time. Whoever owns the Sands of Time has the power to rule the world, and this villainous lord would use that power to enslave all of humanity.
The only person capable of defeating this tyrant and saving the world is Dastan (Gyllenhaal), a youthful prince. Now, with plucky princess Tamina (Arterton) by his side, Dastan will attempt to prevent the Sands of Time from falling into the wrong hands.
Mike Newell (Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire) directs a script penned by Carlo Bernard, Doug Miro, Jordan Mechner, and Boaz Yakin.
