IGN Rewind on 'Prince of Persia' Trailer

What did you think of the "Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time" trailer that came out earlier this week? Do you think it will be a good video-game adaptation?

IGN has done a "Rewind Theater" trailer commentary for the film with the game's creator Jordan Mechner, who discusses the trailer and how it compares to the video game.

Mechner discusses the input he had in the game, the reasons for changes and the ins and outs of it all adding, "I never wanted to do a movie that would retell the story of 'Sands of Time' the game. 'Sands of Time' is a story I wrote to be played and it works perfectly in the game, but with a movie we had a chance to do something different."

As a fan of the "Pirates of the Caribbean" franchise, I am now looking forward to this film. It has a a very large production, something that's been missing when it comes to recent video game adaptations. Obviously the movie isn't going for anything too grand and instead will focus more on character quirks and grandioso action set pieces.

Watch the "Rewind Theater" below because you will actually learn some bits about the trailer and film that you did not know before.

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