But here, modern day, powerful sorcerers and wizards wage a secret war with the fate of the entire world at stake.

This new featurette from Disney's The Sorcerer's Apprentice explains the entire story of the movie going back to the classic Mickey Mouse apprentice scene from Fantasia! Aptly named, the video is called "Fantasia: The Coolest Scene Ever".
Master sorcerer Balthazar Blake (Nicolas Cage) recruits a seemingly everyday guy (Jay Baruchel) in his mission to defend New York City from his evil arch-nemesis - sorcerer Maxim Horvath (Alfred Molina). Posted 06.21.10 by reelz
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.

Disney has released an action-packed new TV spot for its upcoming live-action fantasy movie The Sorcerer's Apprentice that makes the movie appear to be a cross between Harry Potter and Wanted (minus the guns, of course). Very loosely based on the Fantasia (1940) short that starred Mickey Mouse, the movie revolves around an elder sorcerer (played by Nicolas Cage) who takes on a young college student (Jay Baruchel) as his apprentice to help him protect the world from the machinations of an evil magician (Alfred Molina) and his cohorts.

With the villains for Spider-Man 4 still a mystery, there's one former villain who wouldn't mind returning, and no it's not Willem Dafoe (who showed up in all three previous Spider-Man movies, in one way or another). Alfred Molina, who played Doctor Octopus in Spider-Man 2, told MTV he'd happily come back, though there might be a hurdle or two to climb before it's possible:
No one's mentioned it, and I think it's highly unlikely, seeing as he died.
Sure, Molina died, but death in the comic book universe has a way of not lasting forever:
At the Spider-Man 2 premiere in London, I turned around to one of the producers and said, "It's a real shame that I died, because I would've loved to do another one of these." And he said, "Oh, characters don't die in this universe, they just disappear."
Are there any favorites from Spidey's past that Molina can recommend before screenwriter David Lindsay-Abaire turns in the script and Sony announces who they are?
The only thing I'd like to see is to concentrate on one villain. Having two or three of them sort of dilutes the potency of it.
After the villain overload of Spider-Man 3, fans would probably agree. However, only one villain would likely mean no Doc Ock, meaning no Alfred Molina. Posted 06.16.09 by Ryan
The Best Supporting Actor category has some very worthy contenders this year, and we'd just like to take this opportunity to add one more for thought.
Alfred Molina absolutely steals the show as Richard Gere's sensitive, sweaty sidekick in The Hoax.
True, Gere has been getting some buzz for his performance as the man who nearly succeeded in faking a Howard Hughes autobiography, but we think Molina should be on your radar as well. Posted 10.22.07 by reelz
Mike Myers has created a new character for the silver screen, and this one doesn't wear velour leisure suits. The Love Guru will star Myers as a man who was left at an Indian ashram as a baby and then raised by gurus and must use his enlightenment to help a troubled couple, says Variety.
Jessica Alba (Fantastic Four,Sin City), Romany Malco (The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Blades of Glory) and Verne Troyer (Austin Powers' Mini Me) will costar.

The script, which will be directed by Harald Zwart (Agent Cody Banks), has also attracted John Cleese (A Fish Called Wanda, Monty Python), Andy Garcia (When a Man Loves a Woman, Ocean's Thirteen) and Alfred Molina (Spider Man 2, Magnolia) to the cast. Pink Panther 2 will come out on February 13, 2009.
Finally, The Hollywood Reporter has more casting news on the still Untitled Adam Sandler/Anna Faris comedy about the outcast Playboy bunny who becomes house-mother to a lame sorority. Monet Mazur (40 Days and 40 Nights), Beverly D'Angelo (National Lampoon's Vacation), and Colin Hanks (Orange County) are all joining the cast. Posted 08.09.07 by reelz
