Prince of Persia Trailer Hits

Get it while it lasts, someone has uploaded the full Prince of Persia trailer to Youtube. Apparently it premiered the other night in the UK. First impression is, lots of slow motion jumping, lots of effects, but will the film find an audience? Prince of Persia is an interesting franchise, obviously it is an incredibly popular video game, but, will enough people be into it that they’ll check out the film? Only “time” will tell.

I’m not sure I can say I’m super excited about this, just because I’m extremely skeptical of how good it could be. The first is an official poster featuring Jake Gyllenhall looking all sexy-like as the Prince. Then the Prince’s lover played by Gemma Arterton. I mean, this ain’t much, but, its good to see material slowly dropping.

Director David O. Russell is less known in some circles as a director and better known for getting into a fight with George Clooney on ‘Three Kings,’ and causing Lily Tomlin to have one of the greatest meltdowns ever filmed on the set of ‘I Heart Huckabee’s.’  (Thanks, You Tube!)   And now Russell can add James Cann to that list.

Caan has walked off the set of Russell’s new movie, ‘Nailed.’  While shooting in South Carolina, Caan left the set, went home and never came back.  Caan’s publicist released the following statement: ‘James Caan did amicably part ways with this production due to creative differences.’

The movie, a political comedy also starring Jake Gyllenhall, Catherine Keener and Jessica Biel.
