A featurette is out for Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time looking at the dagger and the sands of time that is held within the dagger.

prince-of-persia-sands-of-time-daggerI love the look of the dagger.  The production and effects team went through a lot of effort to keep the dagger's qualities close to those of the period yet giving it some unique twists to help it stand out as special.  These details help to maintain the illusion of reality and are some of the small yet major elements that can make the experience of watching a fantasy tale.

The dagger also has intricate engravings that run the full length of the blade.

It's the details like this that excites me about the film.

Watch the featurette below.



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





Iron Man 2 Official Trailer

The trailer is out for Iron man 2 and it looks good.  Watch the trailer above.

  • Get a peek at Black Widow
  • I like the comment on how Stark privatized world peace
  • I'm still bothered by the double lightsaber whip but at least it looks like the contraption is tied into the entire arm piece and it does look cool.  More like plasma energy along the length of the whip differentiating it from a lightsaber whip.

Iron Man 2 is in theaters May 7, 2010.
