Apologies and Prince of Persia

First of all I would like to apologize for the lack of posts so far. I know we began pretty strong, full of promises. Well we haven't actually posted any reviews as of yet, however I am posting some movie news in the meantime. Hopefully this will be enough to sustain readers until we get some actual posts.

Alfred Molina, a great actor whose recent appearances onscreen include The DaVinci Code, The Hoax, and Silk, has signed on to the 'Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time' alongside Jake Gyllenhaal, Sir Ben Kingsly and Gemma Arterton. In the Mike Newell directed film, Molina will portray Sheik Amar, a man who becomes mentor to the prince.

Alfred Molina, Jake Gyllenhaal and Sir Ben Kingsley are all great actors so this sounds like great news to me. But I can't shake the memories of seeing Sir Ben Kingsley in the trailers for such films as: The Last Legion, BloodRayne, Thunderbirds, and Mike Myer's upcoming summer flick The Love Guru.

The director Mike Newell is kind of a mixed bag when it comes to films. (In my opinion). He did direct the recent Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, which did turn out half decent, so maybe he will be able to make Prince of Persia into a blockbuster worth watching.
