Anyone excited to see Disney's live-action version of Sorcerer's Apprentice? I'll end up seeing it, but I'm not really expecting much, especially after I watched Prince of Persia. One thing Disney sure knows how to do is throw a lot of money at big special effects movies that have a weak story. It doesn't really matter if your a kid though, the eye candy is enough for them and many other people to enjoy the film, which is what they make so much damn money.
The film was directed by Jon Turteltaub (National Treasure) and stars Nicolas Cage with the best hair he's ever had in a movie, Jay Baruchel, Alfred Molina, Teresa Palmer, Monica Bellucci, and Toby Kebbell.
Here's a description of the featurette below:
In “Good vs. Evil,” we’re introduced to Dave [Jay Baruchel], Balthazar Blake’s [Nicolas Cage] apprentice, as he begins to master the art of sorcery through his teacher. We also discover the centuries old rivalry between Balthazar and his nemesis, Maxim Horvath [Alfred Molina].
The behind the scenes video contains a bunch of new footage of the film, as well as interview with the people involved with making it. The movie comes out July 14th, 2010, check out the video below and tell us what ya think.
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. 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. The screenplay is by Matt Lopez and Doug Miro & Carlo Bernard from a screen story by Matt Lopez and Larry Konner & Mark Rosenthal.
