It isn't just us mere mortals getting soggy this rainy Monday morning, as these new shots from Prince Of Persia: The Sands Of Time prove.
Getting a little bit carried away trying to cool down in the arid Middle Eastern sun, our Prince Dastan, played by the brooding Jake Gyllenhaal, along with the sultry Princess Tamina (Gemma Arterton) are shown here drenched from head to foot, and then escaping on horseback still soaking wet.
We also have shots from on set, with director Mike Newell sizing up his subjects and super-producer Jerry Bruckheimer watching on.
Prince Of Persia: The Sands Of Time, also stars Sir Ben Kingsley doing his best Evil Sultan as the coniving Nizam, as well as Toby 'Dead Man's Shoes' Kebbel and Alfred 'Doc Ock' Molina. The film is due on our decidedly unsunny shores on May 28 2010.
