No, this is not the poster art for "Prince of Persia: Sands of Time" but I'll tell you where you can see it.
By watching...wait for it..."Confessions of a Shopalic."
Yeah, believe me! Halfway into the movie, you will be treated with posters, not only from "Prince of Persia" but for "G-Force" as well. They're all laid out there as Times Square billboard ads, similar to "Batman vs. Superman" poster you saw for "I Am Legend."
What's with the advanced advertisement?
"Shopaholic" producer, Jerry Bruckheimer, is also in charge with both "Persia" and "G-Force." Hence, the crossover love. But will the fans of "Shopaholic" be enthralled with "Persia?" Maybe not, but the sight of Jake Gyllenhaal as Prince Dastan may melt their hearts
By the way, Quentin Tarantino uses this inside jokey thing too, like featuring his fictional cigarette brand "Red Apple" as billboards. JJ Abrams, as well, with his "Slusho" ads, and "I Am Legend's" Batman vs. Superman poster.
So keep an eye out for these fun posters when "Confessions of a Shopaholic" opens Feb. 13, also, keep an eye out for my interviews with Isla Fisher, director PJ Hogan, and Bruckheimer coming up.

Back in February last year, "Astro Boy," the movie, was going full speed ahead. Freddie Highmore was supposed to voice the animated young robot.
But word is in -- according to Steve Hulett (Business Representative) and Kevin Koch (President), both from The Animation Guild, the production on Imagi's "Astro Boy" appears to have shut down!
Slashfilm is saying:
Koch reported, “We’ve heard from one of Imagi’s Los Angeles animators that he was called at home on Saturday, Jan. 24, and told that the studio was out of cash, and that he should not report to work on Monday. Since this is all happening over the weekend, we’ve been unable to get any confirmation from official studio sources.”
Will this be a temporary or permanent shut down? We'll let you know, stay tuned!

Okay, I just find this news report fascinating!
According to IGN UK, a Chinese filmmaker has announced plans to make "the world's first 3-D sex flick."
Yeah! Stephen Shiu Jr. is saying this is going to be a sequel to the 1991 hit "Sex and Zen," but this time, it's going to be with 3-D glasses of course!
"The 3D erotica will probably be the world's first... Just imagine that you'll be watching it as if you were sitting beside the bed."
The big question? Will this be shown on IMAX?

"The Wrestler's" Mickey Rourke is about to enter the ring in real life!
The comeback kid revealed to Access Hollywood that he will be participating in WWE's "Wrestlemania 25" in Houston on April 5.
Rourke, attending the 15th Annual SAG Awards, said:
“The boys from the WWE called me and asked me to do it,” Rourke told Access Hollywood. “I said, ‘I want to.’ I’m talking with [WWE legend] Rowdy Roddy Piper about it.”
It's unclear whether Rourke will jump on the ring or just make an appearance. But if he's going to wrestle, who will he fight against?
“Chris Jericho, you better get in shape,” Rourke added. “Because I’m coming after your a**.”
