The Huffington Post has a couple of new images of star Jake Gyllenhaal in the Jerry Bruckheimer-produced video game adaptation Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time.
In the movie, Gyllenhaal plays Dastan, a prince who is tricked into unleashing the Sands of Time, which destroy his kingdom and turn its people into vicious demons. In order to amend his mistake and stop an evil ruler from allowing the Sands to destroy the world, he teams up with a rival princess (and natural love interest) named Tamina, played by Gemma Arterton. The movie also stars Ben Kingsley as Nizam and Alfred Molina as Sheik Amar.
I’m not sure what to think of these images. I know he’s a prince and all, and I’ve only played one of the games — but does Jake look maybe a little too… pretty? This could just be me, but I definitely expected more of a rugged, warrior-type in the final product and not the same thing we saw on those set pics a while back (Read: First Look: Jake Gyllenhaal in ‘Prince Of Persia’). Actually, looking back at them now, he has a lot more of that rugged look in those than he does in these new official images. Weird.

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time is directed by Mike Newell and will be released on May 28, 2010.
