New Character Posters and Official Synopsis for Disney's The Sorcerer's Apprentice
06.10.10 by BrentJS
Walt Disney Pictures has released three new character posters for director Jon Turteltaub's The Sorcerer's Apprentice. The posters feature some of the powerful magic-wielding characters in the movie, including "The Villain," Maxim Horvath (Alfred Molina); "The Sorceress," Veronica (Monica Bellucci); and "The Wizard," Sun Lok (Gregory Woo). Produced by action-meister Jerry Bruckheimer, The Sorcerer's Apprentice promises more thrills than the Fantasia short with Mickey Mouse that inspired the movie.
Here's the official synopsis:
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.
