Nicolas Cage, Monica Bellucci and Jay Baruchel in The Sorcerer's Apprentice Trailer
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
The first trailer for next summer’s Disney adventure THE SORCERER’S APPRENTICE is out and I’m not sure what to make of it. The film stars Nicolas Cage as a sorcerer who…wait for it…has an apprentice, played by Jay Baruchel. They team up to save the world. You can bet there will be a dancing broomstick somewhere in there.
I’m sorry, but I have to admit that I had a hard time watching this trailer because of Nicolas Cage’s hair. I know this isn’t the first time he’s gone with the long hair look, but it’s just plain terrible. Did he not learn anything from NEXT? Other than that, the trailer felt a little flat to me. It doesn’t help matters that the film is directed by Jon Turteltaub, who also directed the NATIONAL TREASURE films.
