Film trailer: 'The Sorcerer’s Apprentice' starring Nicolas Cage
Thursday 10 June 2010
Just released - the fourth and probably the final trailer for
The Sorcerer's Apprentice, an action fantasy film co
-starring Nicolas Cage (
Kick-Ass), Alfred Molina (
Prince of Persia: Sands of Time), and Jay Baruchel (
How to Train Your Dragon).
This comedy adventure follows a sorcerer and his reluctant protégé battling the forces of darkness in the middle of Manhattan. It's filled with fun, action, special effects, and even a version of the famous broomstick scene from the animated Disney classic Fantasia that inspired this film, featuring Mickey Mouse.
The wizard trains his hapless accomplice, offering him a crash course in magic, so he can save the city, vanquish the evil Maxim Horvath, and get the girl. Footage shows Baruchel slaying "real" dragons, not animated ones, using the "plasma bolt."
Produced by Jerry Bruckheimer ( Prince of Persia, Pirates of the Caribbean), the film has Jon Turteltaub ( National Treasure) directing. The feature is due in US theaters July 14, and rolls out in several countries through July, with Europe, the UK and Japan to follow in August.
