Well, this is the lull after the storm. Not too much news on Jake Gyllenhaal or Prince of Persia today. Lots of number-crunching and finger-pointing, some if it aimed directly at Jake. But word of mouth continues to be strong for the movie.
Please continue to share reviews, questions or impressions here.
There was a Jake interview in 24 Hours, a Canadian newspaper. Jake talks about how being an actor means digging deep into your soul, but that the soul contains joy, as well as despair.
That's Tonner's Dastan doll. Apparently the artists couldn't get their hands on any pictures of Jake's face. Or hair. I don't remember Dastan having blond highlights! Click here for some close-up shots. The detail is incredible. Except on the face! Oh, and the hands.
At 17 inches for $209, that's some kind of bargain.
These scans are from Disney Twenty-three and were uploaded at IHJ in all the pre-PoP hoopla. There's a lot of old territory here, but at least one story I hadn't heard anywhere else, about Jake's horse disappearing. Worth a look.
I love the New Yorker PoP art work at the top of the post, even if the critic did hate the film!
