Prince of Persia Granulizes on Blu-ray in September

I love talking about this film.  Anytime I can talk about the lovely Gemma Arterton, I’m a happy man.  And she looks absolutely stunning in Disney’s Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time…and the movie wasn’t bad either (insert smile).  So it gives me great pleasure to announce that Disney has set a September 14th Blu-ray release date for the title.  The Blu-ray will be cooked with a 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio surround track and of course, Gemma in stunning 1080p video.  I’m sold! I’m putting my pre-order in right now and so should you.  The full press release and Blu-ray cover art can be found below.  Enjoy!
