Like most movies where Nicolas Cage is the unquestionable star, “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice” looks … serviceable. So here’s the International Trailer for the film, which features new scenes not previously shown in the domestic trailer released last year, but is still noticeably lacking the Monica Bellucci factor. As in, so where’s Monica Bellucci fit into this thing? Show Monica Bellucci already, guys, sheesh.
Balthazar Blake is a master sorcerer in modern-day Manhattan trying to defend the city from his arch-nemesis, Maxim Horvath. Balthazar can’t do it alone, so he recruits Dave Stutler, a seemingly average guy who demonstrates hidden potential, as his reluctant protege. The sorcerer gives his unwilling accomplice a crash course in the art and science of magic, and together, these unlikely partners work to stop the forces of darkness. It’ll take all the courage Dave can muster to survive his training, save the city and get the girl as he becomes The Sorceror’s Apprentice.
Starring Nicolas Cage, Jay Baruchel, Teresa Palmer, Alfred Molina, Monica Bellucci, Peyton List, and directed by Jon Turteltaub.
