Søndag 9. mai kl. 18:00 norsk tid har Prince of Persia: Sands of Time verdenspremiere i London. Premieren med stjernene på det røde teppet vil nå streames på nettet, og gir deg muligheten til å følge med på dette.

Fra teamet som brakte 'Pirates of the Caribbean' til lerretet. Walt Disney Pictures og Jerry Bruckheimer Films presenterer Prince of Persia: Sands of Time, et episk action eventyr i Persias mystiske landskap. En prins (Jake Gyllenhaal) går motvillig sammen med en mystisk prinsesse (Gemma Arterton) og sammen kjemper de mot mørke krefter for å beskytte en gammel dolk med kraft til å slippe løs tidens sand - en gave fra gudene som kan reversere tiden og den som har dolken kan regjere verden.

Intervju med Jake Gyllenhaal (på engelsk)

Q: What attracted you to this movie and the part of Prince Dastan?

Jake Gyllenhaal: On a personal front, it was something that was so unlikely to find myself doing. It was unlike anything I’d ever played. But when I talked to director Mike Newell about it, it wasn’t just a video game adaptation. It was a massive epic that he had in the works. They had a real classic story, that was emotional and real, and it was filled with massive turns and twists. Every day during filming you must keep in your mind where you are, how you got there and who fooled who. It is like a Usual Suspects and that makes it intriguing to me. Also, if these movies are going to get done, they should be done by the best and Jerry Bruckheimer is the one to make them!

Q: Can you talk us through how you prepared for the physical nature of the role?

Jake Gyllenhaal: I did a lot of training, a lot of running, working out and different types of sports. I am someone who doesn’t love to be inside so I enjoyed being outdoors. I was training like I was going into battle. As from the video game Dastan has to be very agile. It is not just like Gladiator-style fighting although we have all of that. It is also about being able to jump over walls and climb up and run on them. I simulated that as much as I could in training.

Q: How much of the stunt work and Parkour have you been able to do yourself?

Jake Gyllenhaal: I worked in LA for a few weeks with a Parkour guy. Surprisingly, a lot of what they taught me just started to come easily. There is a lot of hanging, and learning how to move your body in the right way. It is all about the landing. But if there is one thing I’ve learned on this movie, it’s if someone asks you to do something, you’ve just got to try it.  If you don’t try, you’ll regret it for the rest of your time. This movie affords you the opportunity to do a lot of crazy things that you wouldn’t normally be able to.

Q: Were there scenes you were desperate to play a part in rather than have a stuntman do it for you?

Jake Gyllenhaal: There is a whole scene in the film with real ostriches. They are all real and live, there is not one CGI ostrich in this movie. They are highly paid. We were told for weeks beforehand how they were massive destructive creatures who could tear your heart out with their claws. So we were shaking. My stuntman was in the ring with one and I was like, ‘I’ve got to get in there. When am I ever going to be in a cage with ostriches?’ So I got in and they were the sweetest things! Every day is like that. You’ve got to just get in there and do it. It’s an experience!

Q: Had you played the Prince of Persia games before and did you feel a sense of responsibility bringing the iconic character of the Prince to life?

Jake Gyllenhaal: I have played a lot of real people in my films and there is equal pressure there. When I was young, I played the game a lot. But what was important for me was to bring some realism into this world that was not fully based on reality. I feel a responsibility because the Prince in the video games has a personality. He has a story but you don’t really know it. As an actor, you get to put the expression on that character and get to make a new path for what the character is, rather than being nervous you will screw up what was there.

Q: What was the most fun part of making a movie like this?

Jake Gyllenhaal: When you are a kid, you play like this and go outside with your friends and play fight. We are doing this every day. The best for me is I’ve never done a lot of sword fighting, hand-on-hand and combat. But we also get humour and performance in the middle of it all. I find that so difficult. I have utter respect for those who can put that type of feeling into the role while battering someone. It is like chewing gum and walking at the same time! It is really tough for actors.

Q: How did you cope with the heat when filming in Morocco?

Jake Gyllenhaal: I actually enjoy the heat. The one promise I made to everyone on this film, as most of them are British and I am from Southern California, was that I would not complain about the heat. The desert is a real place of clarity. It is a wonderful place to be. When you’re equipped with lots of water of course!

Q: How have you found working with director Mike Newell?

Jake Gyllenhaal: It is great working with Mike. There is such an unlikely cast of characters in this movie which is so great. No-one is out to prove anything; everyone is out to discover something. That is the difference between this movie and so many other movies like it. As for Mike, this is the guy who directed Four Weddings and a Funeral and he’s done Harry Potter as well, it’s great. Every day is bigger, faster and funnier – not in a laughable way - but we always find the reality of a situation through him.

Q: Assuming the first is a success, are you looking forward to the prospect of shooting one or two more Prince of Persia sequels?

Jake Gyllenhaal: Yes, after doing this it will be hard to go back to smaller characters. There’s a type of high when you make a movie like this. Every day is infectious, there are days when you get tired, but even on my Sundays off I worked out twice as that was where my head was. I am prepared for whatever comes my way.
