Turning video games into movies can be a challenge, especially when adapting a series as beloved as 'Prince of Persia.' In this exclusive clip, director Mike Newell shows us how close the filmmakers kept to the classic games, as Gyllenhaal's Prince Dastan shows off some of his trademark wall-climbing skills and takes the action from side-scroller to real-life.


'Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time' opens on Friday, May 28.
