Jake Gyllenhaal courtside. His new film looks good - Prince of Persia with the long locks.
Looks like someone bought himself a new hat over the weekend :)
After a totally unexpected on-side kick led to a touchdown and turned the Super Bowl around for the New Orleans Saints, the real excitement happened: Disney aired a 30-second spot for Prince of Persia, starring Jake Gyllenhaal:
The ad opened with a beautiful shots of Gemma and then ran through some familiar scenes:
Best part of the ad? "GIVE ME THE DAGGER!"
Some reviews are in. Television Without Pity gives the ad a thumbs-up:
With this video-game movie, simple seems the best way to go, since its longer trailers have only made this look like a convoluted mess. In only 30 seconds, this trailer got across the fact that Jake Gyllenhaal is in it, he has a knife that turns back time, and the special effects are jaw-dropping. We're in.
The USA Today AdMeter currently ranks the PoP ad 44th (Alice in Wonderland is 31; Shutter Island 37; Robin Hood 39; Wolfman.)
You can vote in a poll on the movie ads at the Star Ledger.
The cover art for Brothers can be seen on Amazon - and you can pre-order, too! It's odd that they have the date listed as 2008. Yes, that's when we wanted to see it, but we didn't get to!
