Pretty eyes! Long hair! Prince of Persia poster debuts!

Empire has the first promotional posters for Mike Newell‘s upcoming video game adaptation Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time. The one-sheets (no doubt prepared for this week’s Comic Con) highlight the lovely features of stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Gemma Arterton.

Gyllenhaal stars as the ‘rogue prince’ Dastan who must team up with Princess Tamina to safeguard an ancient dagger which holds the secret to controlling time, and ultimately the world.

Ben Kingsley and Alfred Molina also star in Newell’s first big budget blockbuster since Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.

It looks as if Disney are hoping to replicate their Pirates of the Caribbean-franchise’s success, and for what it’s worth Arterton and Gyllenhaal are much more appealing leads than Knightley and Bloom. However, you can’t expect lightning to strike twice. POP: TSOT will need a wildcard in their pocket like Captain Jack to be the next big movie series.

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time hits cinemas May 28, 2010.

Discuss: So is this the next Pirates or what?
