  • Sorcerer's Apprentice Trailer - 12/9/09

    Apple just posted a trailer for the new Sorcerer's Apprentice live action movie on their site after a countdown that started a couple of days ago.

    Check it out:
    Apple - Trailers - The Sorcerer's Apprentice

    After watching it, I was incredibly let down by the lack of a blue hat, red robe, and more scenes involving dancing broomsticks and incredible amounts of water. (There was a 1 second clip showing the apprentice struggling with mops in a flooded room).

    My initial impression is that behind all the special effects, it looks awful.
    Nicholas Cage's awful batman-esque voice saying "I have been searching all over the world for you" is kinda what killed it for me.

    I'm staying optimistic that Disney will deliver, but so far I'm not very impressed.
    It looks like a cool movie, but a disappointment to the classic story of "The Sorcerer's Apprentice".

    Voice your opinions, based on the trailer, how do you think the movie is going to turn out?

    Looks fun. It's definitely bigger in scope than what I imagined. Here's hoping the story matches the energy.

      It doesn't look as bad as I was expecting when I heard:

      a) there's a movie called The Sorcerer's Apprentice
      b) it stars Nicholas Cage


      They showed a longer clip at D23 Expo and I think despite the obvious ties to Fantasia and how much I love the animated film, this could be a fun movie in a very different way.

      As for any nods to the fans, I'm sure they're littered about. They tease you with brooms and water, isn't that enough for a first trailer?

        I thought I just watched a trailer for The Dark Knight meets Ghostbusters 2.

        I think Disney and Nic Cage should've stuck to finding out what's on page 47.

          Agreed.

          I'm going to see the movie regardless, but Nichole Cage is slowly working his way up my "actors I'm tired of" list.
          Don't get me wrong, I really enjoyed National Treasure 1 and 2 and some of his older stuff. But I'm pretty sure the ONLY reason he was cast in this movie is because the director is the same guy from National Treasure.

            Well that and because he pitched the story concept. The whole franchise was his idea, but come on...Leaving Las Vegas, Adaptation, The Rock, Gone in 60 seconds, Con Air, National Treasure 1 and 2, Matchstick Men, Face Off....Cage has done some awesomely fun stuff in his career. Bad Lieutenant is supposed to be great as well.

              Didn't know that bit...
              They still should've ditched him. Hahaha.
              He makes a terrible Balthazar Blake, in my opinion.

              Like I said before, he's working his way into that list. I still loved a lot of his older movies. Matchstick Men and Gone in 60 Seconds are both on that list.
              I just don't feel he was right for this role.

                I'm still not really sure what to think of it...

                For now I'm sticking to Mickey as Yen Sid's Apprentice.

                  First off, the effects look awesome.
                  Dialogue looks a little weak....but it's likely this film may surprise me.

                  Also, Cage will be in the Gothic horror,Season of the Witch with Ron Pearlman.
                  That also looks like a badass film.
                  Don't think of a gun as a weapon.
                  Think of it as a third arm that magically
                  shoots bullets!

                    I don't think this was ever meant to be "based on" the Sorcerer's Apprentice... merely "inspired by." It's a sorcerer who needs and apprentice. It's like someone watched the Mickey Mouse one and thought, "what if..."

                    I did like the little homage to the animated one with the mop and flooded room though. Hopefully there are lots of those little moments (like Pirates had).

                    Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

                      This is my first time hearing about this movie, and I'm actually pretty excited for it. I'm going to stay optimistic!

                          They are releasing it on July 16, right in the prime summer season. It must be testing very well and they have much confidence in it--otherwise they'd be sending it to the neatherregions of a fall or spring opening.

                              Agreed. Cage is a hit or a miss. He was awesome in National Treasure, but Ghost Rider wasn't so great for him (in my opinion). From what I've seen in the teaser, I'm cautiously excited. The movie looks good... not so sure about Cage yet. Hopefully the trailer itself will really show us how good this movie could be (trailer probably out May or June).
