  2. I'll go for Jake. Otherwise I wouldn't bother.

  3. Hollywood Authenticism is in full force here... what exactly makes them think that people in ancient Persia would have British accents?

  4. Boring. Yawn.

    This Gyllenhaal fascination is a mystery to me.

  5. Cool special effects. Hot Jakey. Not a very good trailer, though.

  6. I have a feeling this will be a stinker -probably will make $$. Quite fond of Jake but would rather watch him play with a puppy.

  7. I'm a GIANT fan of Jake's, but Christ that is one boring trailer. I couldn't wait for it to end. This movie is really going to bomb.

  8. What a ridiculous photo. What a ridiculous movie. Why are they doing this?

  9. Jake is SO pretty to look at. But this movie looks like an over-the-top special effects mess. Can't we just have a movie with him rubbing suntan lotion all over his body?

  10. They should have made him homosexual like so many of the Persians.

  11. Looks like another overblown Bruckheimer production...if they'd edit it down to only scenes where Jake is running around shirtless, I'd go see it. But otherwise, I'll wait for screencaps.

  12. The fact that the producers felt the need to put a white A list star in the lead role to attract an audience speaks volumes to the quality of the script.

    Best to watch this one on mute in the background at a gay bar.

  13. Maybe the trailer not approved for all audiences will be better.

  14. OMG 1.31 made my day :-) Nice birthday present, Andy!

    Next I want presents from Maine, Washington, and Kalamazoo!

  15. Wow...looks gorgeous, but man who gives a shit about research, huh. "The gods"? In Persia? Persia has been monotheistic for about 2500-3000 yrs now. I have a feeling it's only gonna get worse from there...

  16. Hussain, your pick is a mighty fine looking man! I certainly wouldn't mide seeing him writhing around naked in a shallow pool of honey. (wait, I gotta fan myself)

    At any rate...
    I guess since it's an American made film and American companies wanting to use established American actors in order to recoup their, most likely, huge investments.

    Even though Jake does not look like what a Persian is expected to look like, I personally, find him to have this overall cuteness and sexiness combined that make him hot as hell. He's also a very good actor. His draw would be one main reason why I would see this film to begin with. I am not a video game person, but I do like action films.

    Time and box office take will be the derterminant factors as to whether or not a mistake was made.

  17. looks like a silly movie.

  18. Nothing new here.

    Just the latest example in Hollywood's long running obsession with putting white people into "exotic" locations and making them the focus of attention in a movie that's supposedly about Middle Easterners, Asians, Africans, Native Americans, etc.

  19. thanks for showing us Raiders of the Lost Mummy: Warrior Princess. it was a lovely nap

  20. Looks dull. I quit watching the trailer at :58 seconds. Jake is hot but ZZZZZ summed it up perfectly. Been there, skipped that.

  21. Given Jake's previous film choices, this is just baffling... Harry Potter meets Lord of the Rings meets Troy meets blah blah blah...all the other ridiculous movies with people flying around in slow mo..

    Having said that - Jake's arms are looking awesome :-)

  22. that looks really bad to me...

    Posted by: Ryan | Nov 3, 2009 3:17:59 PM

  23. Two words: Net Flix.

  24. there has to be, HOT Persian actors out there..

  25. For those of you complaining about the historical and casting inaccuracies, remember that this movie is not about an actual prince from is based completely on a fictitious storyline from the VIDEO GAME, not on history, nor on Persia.
