Jake Gyllenhaal attending "Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time" LA Premiere on May 17, 2010
"Equipped with a chunked-up physique and a surprisingly accurate English accent, Jake Gyllenhaal makes a play for the family blockbuster market, as the lead actor in an expensive-looking film based, inevitably, on a video game. He plays a prince called Dastan in some nebulous region of medieval-era Middle East, who via a series of painfully complicated events, finds himself in possession of a mean-looking dagger that, via the sand grains in its hilt, can stop time and enable its operator to change things to his or her satisfaction. Gemma Arterton – glowing like a premier-league film star, but yapping like a Britcom third-rater – is the princess of the holy city where Dastan seizes it, while Ben Kingsley puts his supercilious sneer to good use as Dastan's treacherous uncle. It goes without saying, too, that any contemporary geo-political resonances are stuffed well out of sight: despite the odd mention of religion here and there, there's no concession to the fact that this is notionally set in the US's bete noire, Iran".

"Megan Fox won't be in 'Transformers 3.' So who will be Shia LeBeouf's new girlfriend?
As you might expect, every actress in Hollywood between the ages of 18 and 26 are candidates for the role, though The Wrap reports that Gemma Arterton is currently the frontrunner to play LeBeouf's love interest.
Arterton is certainly no stranger to Hollywood blockbusters, having appeared as a doomed Bond Girl in 'Quantum of Solace' and as the goddess Io in the recent 'Clash of the Titans' reboot. Gemma Arterton and Jake Gyllenhaal at "Prince of Persia" Los Angeles Premiere on 17th May 2010
