If you’re a fan of CG heavy movies about magic then you’ll probably love this one, and it comes to you from the hands of Dave’s fave – Jerry Bruckheimer – which tells you all you need to know.
There’s some new footage on offer here, and it looks slick enough, with magic abounding all over the place and Mr. Cage has on his spooky hat so you can’t argue.
Here’s a synopsis for you.
Walt Disney Studios, producer Jerry Bruckheimer and director Jon Turteltaub, the creators of the “National Treasure” franchise, present THE SORCERER’S APPRENTICE, an innovative and epic comedy adventure about a sorcerer and his hapless apprentice who are swept into the center of an ancient conflict between good and evil. Balthazar Blake (NICOLAS CAGE) is a master sorcerer in modern-day Manhattan trying to defend the city from his arch-nemesis, Maxim Horvath (ALFRED MOLINA). Balthazar can’t do it alone, so he recruits Dave Stutler (JAY BARUCHEL), a seemingly average guy who demonstrates hidden potential, as his reluctant protégé.
