Every day this week, Disney have been releasing a new poster from their latest movie collaboration with Jerry Bruckheimer, The Sorcerer’s Apprentice which stars Nicolas Cage, Alfred Molina, Monica Bellucci, Teresa Palmer, Jay Baruchel and is helmed by National Treasure director,  Jon Turteltaub. The first poster was for ‘The Wizard’ played by Gregory Woo, the second for the Villain played by Alfred Molina, the third for The Sorceress played by Monika Bellucci and today we get to see Jay Baruchel as The Apprentice. The poster also contains a little cameo from Bauruchel’s love interest, Aussie actress, Teresa Palmer.

Character Description:

DAVE STUTLER (Jay Baruchel) is a nerdy NYU physics major, lacking confidence and poise, not very popular with girls or even his fellow students.  At the age of 10, he experiences a frightening incident when he encounters sorcerer Balthazar Blake after wandering into the bizarre Arcana Cabana curio shop. He’s given a dragon ring that comes to life on his finger, and he’s told that he’ll be a very important sorcerer himself.  He then witnesses a furious battle between Balthazar and another sorcerer named Maxim Horvath which made him want to forget the whole matter…until both Balthazar and Horvath re-enter his life 10 years later, forcing him to confront a destiny he would very much like to ignore!  “Dave is his own worst enemy, the architect of his own misery,” says Baruchel.  “He spends his life trying to live down that moment in the Arcana Cabana when he first encountered Balthazar and Horvath.  He gravitates towards physics, which is the discipline he gives his life to.  When he meets up with Balthazar again, the sorcerer tells Dave that it was no coincidence that he drifted towards physics because although illusion and magic are different, magic and science are the same thing.”

The Sorcerer’s Apprentice is released in the UK 11th August.
