Wonderland

Just yesterday, we got our first look at Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow in Jon Favreau‘s Iron Man 2. The images came from this weeks issue of Entertainment Weekly, which is a preview to Comic Con special. The issue has now been officially released and as it turns out, there were many more great images inside!

To go with the pictures of Black Widow, a few more tiny peeks at Iron Man 2 were offered. Among them is a look a Don Cheadle — who is stepping in for Terrence Howard as James Rhodes — sitting in front of Sam Rockwell, who will be playing Tony Stark rival Justin Hammer. There’s also a couple of new images of Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark: One is of him taking part in some seemingly highly-competitive competition of sorts; the other shows him speaking to new CEO of Stark Industries: Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow).

It doesn’t end there, either. A bunch of other big movies with previews featured in the issue as well, including Tim Burton‘s Alice in Wonderland, Matthew Vaughn‘s Kick-Ass, Mike Newell‘s Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, Shane Acker‘s 9, Roland Emmerich‘s 2012, Ruben Fleischer‘s Zombieland, and Chan-Wook Park‘s Thirst.

Persia

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’ Possibly Like ‘Pirates’?

Prince of PersiaIf you’re a prospective mega-franchise based on an extremely popular video game series like Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time is, what do you look up to?

That’s right, Pirates of the Caribbean.

The Pirates franchise made billions of dollars and it made a hobby of shattering box office records, making it the natural inspiration.

When screenwriter/creator Jordon Mechner spoke to MTV, he explained how he pitched the idea to Disney and producer Jerry Bruckheimer.

As an old-fashioned swashbuckling action-adventure in a tradition going all the way back to the Doug Fairbanks movies. The modern equivalent being ‘Pirates of the Caribbean,’ an example of an old movie made new again, doing a fresh take on it for a modern audience. Tonally, I’d say it’s basically ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ with maybe a half-step towards ‘Gladiator.’

Prince of PersiaJust Jared has the very first pics of Jake Gyllenhaal in full-costume for his upcoming franchise bid with Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time.

Not a whole lot to see here, but if you’re a fan of the games then you’ll notice that the costume looks pretty good, if you ask me. He still doesn’t look very Persian, but better than I expected for sure!

The pics, which were snapped on the set of the film in Morocco, are obviously not official in nature, but are the only ones out there at this time. In some of them, you can see Gyllenhaal walking hand-in-hand with his girlfriend, actress Reese Witherspoon.
