"Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time" has become the single biggest video game movie adaptation in history in terms of international box office. “What?!” I hear you cry, “surely Street Fighter deserves that heady accolade”. Well, frankly no, it doesn’t.
It’s hardly a huge achievement in all honesty, given the traditional reception of video game adaps, though almost $300m world-wide isn’t a figure to be sniffed at. Jake Gyllenhaal as Prince Dastan in Hot Press (Ireland) magazine.
You still get the feeling that Disney won’t be overly happy with the Jake Gyllenhaal project, seeing as it hasnt yet made anywhere near its production costs domestically, which is pretty much rule number one for any project that aspires to be deemed successful enough to warrant franchising (or even single sequelling come to think of it).

So far, Prince of Persia has made $214 million in its non-domestic purse, which more than doubles the amount it has made in the U.S. ($84m)". Source: www.heyuguys.co.uk
