The trailer for Disney’s Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, a film based on the video game, has debuted online. The story is set in medieval Persia, Earth’s mightiest and most mysterious kingdom, where a king and his son defeat the powerful Maharajah and kidnap his daughter, looting his palace of priceless treasure, including an extravagant hourglass, and a mysterious dagger.
Prince of Persia stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Gemma Arterton, Alfred Molina and Ben Kingsley with Mike Newell (Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire) directing. It is due in theaters on May 28, 2010.

I didn’t watch the trailer, so I have to ask, does it look like this will be a successful video game-to-film adaptation or will the lackluster trend of failed attempts continue?
