Apple has debuted the first trailer for Jon Turteltaub‘s “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice.” The first official photos from the movie also have been released. Check them out below.
Turteltaub (Phenomenon, Instinct, National Treasure) directed from the script written by Larry Konner, Mark Rosenthal, Matt Lopez, Doug Miro and Carlo Bernard.
“The Sorcerer’s Apprentice,” adaptation of the classic story from “Fantasia,” stars Nicolas Cage, Monica Bellucci, Jay Baruchel, Alfred Molina, Teresa Palmer and Toby Kebbell.
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 romantic comedy adventure, “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice” is scheduled for release on July 16, 2010.
