This Prince Of Persia Poster Is Way Better

Not this one. This one is the U.S. promotional poster for the big screen version of the Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time. It's... boring! Russia, god bless 'em, did a much better job.

Just look at it! We get the two leads, the dagger, and the backdrop in one fell swoop. The poster informs the views and lets them know a bit about the film. It's a preview that doesn't move.

The U.S. poster is just an image of a movie star. How dull!

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time kicks up theatres this May and stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Ben Kingsley, Gemma Arterton, Alfred Molina and Toby Kebbell. The film is produced by Jerry Bruckheimer.

Russian Poster for Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time []


    I like the English one better.
    At least in the English one Jake hasnt had his arm chopped off and replaced with a childs arm. . . but on fire!

      umm...... wtf?

      haha i thought it was just me!

      Now that i look at it a bit more, his arm seems normal though

    I saw an English version of the colorful poster at the cinema's last week (It was a standee). except, it looked a little more impressive in person. Didn't notice that the arm with the Dagger was so poorly photoshoped

    Aside from his "Grab my strong hand" arm, i'd say I'd much rather watch this movie based on the russian poster than the english one. The english one looks like they just photoshopped Jake Gyllenhal into a poster for a WW2 movie and sucked all the colour out of him.

    Oh god his arm...

    Uh, other than that it's more informative I suppose... I like both... but think I'll go with the U.S. this time.

    Hmm, another case of American Box Art Designs needing to feature the full-size character over a depiction of content a la Heavy Rain, perhaps? I realise it's a cinema poster, but the analogy holds. American Heroes seem to pose Golden-Age Comic book style and have little else allowed to show with them, other countries request more context than a bland portrait of a hero. I wonder if this holds true for many action titles and movies?
