"The Sorcerer's Apprentice": A Job So Great It's Magic

Sneak Peek a new UK banner and 5-minute clip, supporting the upcoming feature "The Sorcerer's Apprentice".

"The Sorcerer's Apprentice" is directed by Jon Turteltaub and produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, starring Nicolas Cage, Jay Baruchel and Monica Bellucci.

The new film is a 're-imagining' of the 'Sorcerer's Apprentice' segment appearing in Disney's 1940 full-length theatrical cartoon "Fantasia".

The film also adapts supernatural themes from the 1890's symphonic poem by Paul Dukas and 1797 ballad by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe.

Premise of the new film follows an average college student (Baruchel) reluctantly recruited to work for a 'sorcerer' (Cage), who gives him a crash course in the art and science of magic, preparing him for battle against the 'forces of darkness' in modern day Manhattan.
