Prince Of Persia trailer arrives

The first promo for Prince Of Persia: The Sands Of Time has arrived online.

Despite the fact that it has already aired on TV, there's no official UK trailer yet, so we're making do with this unofficial release until it arrives.

And how is it? Very much like a video game, which is not all that shocking considering that it's been adapted by one - Jake Gyllenhaal's (British-accented) warrior finds the dagger doohickey that lets him turn back time with magic sand, and must get it to its guardians before the villain (Ben Kingsley) uses it to DESTROY THE WORLD.

But the footage also makes it clear that the movie will be loaded down with shots of our hero running, jumping, fighting and squabbling with Gemma Arterton's Tamina.

Take a look at the trailer below and let us know your thoughts...
