Walt Disney Pictures has set the record straight after report is circulating that its upcoming videogame adaptation will be presented in Digital 3-D in theaters.
Contrary to what has been suggested in a poster promoting upcoming Disney Digital 3-D releases at Disney's D23 fan convention, "Prince of Persia: Sands of Time" won't be screened in 3-D. Walt Disney Pictures came up with the clarification. The mouse house stated the display at the convention is inaccurate and the representative at the expo must have been misinformed.
Coming Soon previously reported on the possibility of the videogame adaptation getting a 3-D screening by pointing out on the poster it came across on the floor of D23 Expo in Anaheim, California. At the time, the site confirmed representatives on the site claimed that "while the film was shot in 2-D, a post process will be applied to allow for 3-D presentations."
At the September 11's panel of the D23 Expo for Disney's future live-action slate, what seems to be the trailer of "Prince of Persia" was shown. The preview was introduced by Walt Disney Studios Chairman Dick Cook as an 'unfinished sneak peek'. During the occasion, producer Jerry Bruckheimer said, "It's a videogame. But you don't have to be a fan of video games to love this movie. It's got romance and adventure; a dagger that can control time. I'm very excited."
"Prince of Persia: Sands of Time" is directed by "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire" helmer Mike Newell. Starred by Jake Gyllenhaal and Gemma Arterton, it follows Dastan and Tamina as they team up to prevent a villainous nobleman from possessing the Sands of Time, a gift from the gods that can reverse time and allow its possessor to rule the world. The action adventure is set to be released in the U.S. May 28, 2010.
