First Prince of Persia Movie Trailer Debuts (Updated)

The debut trailer for Disney's game-inspired Prince of Persia film has arrived, offering a glimpse of the Jake Gyllenhaal's antics as the titular (and time-traveling) prince.

Partially written by franchise creator Jordan Mechner, directed by Mike Newell (Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire) and produced by Jerry Bruckheimer (Pirates of the Caribbean), the film rolls out to theaters in late May. A higher quality version of the trailer is expected tomorrow--for now, you'll have to make due with this blocky YouTube embed.

Update: As expected, a much higher quality version of the trailer is now available.

      Hah~! I came into the comments for this! I was going to say that I only saw one point in the film that reminded me of the DOS game of old. Just enough, Just enough.
