Disney has delayed PRINCE OF PERSIA: THE SANDS OF TIME almost a year, to May 28, 2010. That moves it out of the way of the second TRANSFORMERS but directly between DreamWorks' SHREK GOES FOURTH and Marvel's THOR, per COMINGSOON.net.
Its original June 19, 2009 release date was a week before TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN. Memorial Day that year is May 31, now giving PRINCE OF PERSIA at least a four-day opening.
Mike Newell is directing the video game adaptation starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Gemma Arterton, Alfred Molina and Ben Kingsley, produced by Jerry Bruckheimer.
