The Sorcerer's Apprentice
Friday 12th November 2010
Hollywood's most powerful producer Jerry Bruckheimer and director Jon Turteltaub join forces once again in Disney's latest action adventure The Sorcerer's Apprentice. Making its home entertainment debut on Disney DVD and Double Play on 6th December 2010, this family quest brings together the inexorable talents of Nicolas Cage, Alfred Molina and Jay Baruchel in stunning high definition, destined to become a firm favourite with all ages this Christmas. The epic comedy action adventure chronicles the escapades of a sorcerer and his hapless apprentice when they are swept into the centre of an ancient conflict between good and evil.
Balthazar Blake (Nicholas 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 Sorcerer's Apprentice is a fabulous mix of family fun and a rip-roaring action adventure extravaganza, including thrilling scenes from car chases to dragons, fireballs, explosions and a magical Fantasia-inspired mop and bucket clean up scene. The Blu-ray is packed with an array of special features including a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the movie, over seven minutes of fantastic deleted scenes, a host of hilarious outtakes, an in-depth look at the special effects used in the film and a 10 minute documentary exploring how the film interpreted the opportunity to reinvent one of the most enduring scenes from the Walt Disney classic Fantasia. With stellar performances from an all-star cast, and breathtaking special effects, The Sorcerer's Apprentice is this year's ultimate family action adventure.
