With comic books nearly plucked dry studios are looking elsewhere for stories to turn to film. It’s no surprise that they took a chance on the Prince of Persia video game series. The stories, usually, have been exceptionally good, and there’s been a tonne of action in the games. Mix that with mega producer Jerry Bruckheimer, some Jack Gyllenhaal, and a little Gemma Arton and you get Prince of Persia: Sands of Time. Now headed to Blu-ray and DVD in September.
When Dastan comes home on the 14th you’ll get a Dolby Digital 5.1 track with the DVD and the Blu-ray will feature a 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio track. As for bonus features, it seems a little light, but the CineExplore seems very interesting.

Filled with death-defying escapes and unexpected twists at every turn – Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time is a fun-filled adventure that will keep your pulse pounding long after the credits end.
