Yahoo! Movies has five minutes from Jon Turteltaub’s “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice” to get you excited about the upcoming Disney film starring Nicolas Cage and Jay Baruchel, due out in two weeks. The scene has Cage’s character fighting Molina’s in a magic duel. Curiously, the kid playing young Jay Baruchel doesn’t sound like he’s got a frog in his throat. Go figure.
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 Sorcerer’s Apprentice.
Starring Jay Baruchel, Nicolas Cage, Monica Bellucci, Alfred Molina, Robert Capron, Teresa Palmer, Ethan Peck, Toby Kebbell, Alice Krige, and directed by Jon Turteltaub.
