Oh dear GOD no!

At least he is better than Zac Efron if only marginally.

Lets hope that the trap in the picture is in it.

Orlando is alright in a movie. I hope that they don't make the next Prince of Persia game look like him though.

Maybe if they show him being killed again and again by the various spike traps, giant blades and metal jaws, then and only then would I go see this movie.

sort of a sword or bow in his hand, he's OK. The second they strip the weaponry from him, his manliness meter goes down about 5 notches.

That is a lot of money... I hope this movie does well it may set the bar to high for Uwe boll to get a job though...

LightningPS33873d ago

They use the same recycled actors over and over.

That's only one of the reasons actually.

Besides, that idiot doesn't even look Persian

FAT MAN GO BOOM3873d ago

No he does not look Persian, I think he would be much better off in one the girly looking males in a Final Fantasy movie...

SUP3R3873d ago

I actually don't mind him playing the prince.
Neither here nor there with this decision, I just hope the movie is tolerable at least.

FAT MAN GO BOOM3873d ago

I think it will turn out ok... at the least...

the movie is really own loosely based on the game... so if the scripted is good it should be an ok movie...

with Disney at the wheel this will be a good game-to-movie film, maybe not for the hardcore fans, but for the general public it will be.

Hardcore fans generally ruin the experience anyways, especially with comic book movies. Always complaining about something.
