Prince Of Persia Is "Bigger" Than Harry Potter

We're not talking popularity here, but size, physical size - er, scope. Distance! Get your mind out of the gutter.

Mike Newell directed 2005's Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and the upcoming Prince of Persia film. When asked about the difference between the two, he told website Latino Review, "It's bigger because Harry Potter in the end is bounded by the school. You don't really go outside the school."

Obvious difference! (Though, Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Schoolbooks sounds intriguing at the very least.)

Following that up, Newell said this about the Prince Persia film: "What you're doing is ploughing the field for the very first time, but with Potter, the field had already been ploughed."

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time will hit cinemas this May. It will not take place at a magical British academic institution.

    Full points for 'chesty' Radcliffe!

    LOL is he embarrassed that Prisoner of Azkaban was way better than Goblet of Fire and totally upstaged him when Goblet was released???

    PoA will always be the beginning of how the Harry Potter movies actually became really great movies, but its sad that its the lowest grossing film of the bunch. Goblet, truthfully, wasn't that great.

    Oh... I didnt know it was the guy who did HP4 movie. HP4 movie was the worst one. I just wrote of the PoP movie...

    Seriously, HP4 move was like 30 minute dragon scene that completely went away from the book. And the sacrifice? the actual freaking story.

    HP would have been great had they stuck to the original story
