Thank U, Gyllenhaal. Thank U, synergy. Thank U, corporate resurgence! Alanis Morissette was on hand for the Prince Of Persia premiere in LA last night, having recorded “I Remain,” the track that plays over the film’s closing credits. “I saw a screening of the movie and immediately felt compelled to write a song within 10 minutes,” she told USA Today. “It wrote itself.” Funny, we just assumed the producers remembered her bombastic City Of Angels track “Uninvited” when they needed something vaguely middle eastern for the credits, but her version seems a lot more flattering. Maybe she can make a whole album based on summer blockbuster video game adaptations! Look forward to her “A World Of Crafted War” in 2011.
An event honoring producer Jerry Bruckheimer coincided with the Persia premiere, giving pec-powered Persia star Jake Gyllenhaal the chance to mingle with action heroes like Tom Cruise, Nicolas Cage and Bruce Willis. See photos of these stars and more in the gallery below (is it just us or does Billy Bob Thornton look like the dad from Gossip Girl these days?).
