Walt Disney Pictures has released a new two and a hald minute movie trailer for the Jerry Bruckheimer-produced, Jon Turteltaub-directed The Sorcerer’s Apprentice. The new trailer shows a bit more interaction between Jay Baruchel and Teresa Palmer, and showcases a bunch of new special effects shots. I’ve been hearing a bunch of good things about this movie, and I expect it will surprise us. Watch the trailer now after the jump.

Walt Disney Pictures has released a new behind-the-scenes featurette titled “Good vs. Evil” for the Jerry Bruckheimer-produced, Jon Turteltaub-directed The Sorcerer’s Apprentice.
In “Good vs. Evil,” we’re introduced to Dave [Jay Baruchel], Balthazar Blake’s [Nicolas Cage] apprentice, as he begins to master the art of sorcery through his teacher. We also discover the centuries old rivalry between Balthazar and his nemesis, Maxim Horvath [Alfred Molina].
We also have five new production photos from the film. See the photos and watch the video, embedded after the jump.

The film adaptation of I Am Number Four, the first book in a sci-fi novel series co-authored by James Frey, became a big deal pretty fast. First it was because the film was rumored to be set up as a project for Michael Bay to produce and, possibly, direct.
Then DJ Caruso (Eagle Eye, Disturbia) was tapped to direct, with Bay and Steven Spielberg producing. Actors have steadily been added to the film, and now we’ve got one more: Dianna Agron, who has had insane exposure in the last year thanks to her role on Glee. Read More »
Teresa Palmer has become the newest go-to good looking actress for geek film properties. The Australian actress had a small role in The Grudge 2, but had her big break in the Adam Sandler family comedy Bedtime Stories. She’s one of the leads in Disney’s upcoming Jerry Bruckheimer-produced fantasy adventure The Sorcerer’s Apprentice and is in preproduction on Mad Max: Fury Road. And lets not forget, she was attached to star in the George Miller-directed Justice League of America movie, which has since been abandoned.
Her latest gig is a science fiction adaptation: the Dreamworks’ Michael Bay/Steven Spielberg-produced D.J. Caruso-directed teen sci-fi alien adaptation I Am Number Four.

Walt Disney Pictures has released a new international movie trailer for Jon Turteltaub‘s The Sorcerer’s Apprentice. The trailer is basically a variation on the trailer released late last year in the states, but includes a bit more dialogue, action and a better look at Alfred Molina as the film’s villain Maxim. Shockingly, I’ve been hearing nothing but good things about this film from my insiders who are in the know.
So if you’re done watching that awesome Scott Pilgrim trailer again (really, we know you’re excited but it’s quickly becoming a problem), head on after the jump. As always, please leave your thoughts in the comments below.
Nicholas Hoult and Teresa Palmer Confirmed for Mad Max: Fury Road; Film is a Sequel Rather Than Prequel?
Posted on Thursday, January 28th, 2010 by Russ Fischer
Just over a week ago word leaked out that Teresa Palmer might be in George Miller‘s upcoming Mad Max: Fury Road. That wasn’t a huge surprise, as Miller had cast Palmer as Talia Ghul in his aborted Justice League movie. Now we’ve got confirmation that Palmer is in fact part of the Mad Max cast, along with another rumored actor, Nicholas Hoult. (Nick Hoult!) Read More »
George Miller Casting: Teresa Palmer in Mad Max 4: Fury Road, Matt Damon and Brad Pitt in Happy Feet 2

It seems like it was only earlier today that I was writing about George Miller and his Mad Max sequel… oh waitaminute, it was only… et cetera, et cetera.
According to (!) Jay Baruchel, Teresa Palmer has the prize part of “main chick” in Mad Max 4: Fury Road – so, move over Charlize, at least into the position of “not so main chick”. Baruchel was speaking to press at the Dreamworks PR launch of How to Train Your Dragon, which features vocal turns from both Baruchel and Palmer. The Herald Sun have the full story, though no further details on the Mad Max role are given.
Meanwhile, Movieline got the scoop that Miller has also cast Matt Damon and Brad Pitt. How’s that for some starpower? But hold your horses – he hasn’t cast them in the Mad Max sequel. Instead, he’s given them voice roles in his second Happy Feet picture. Movieline know nothing of the specifics – heck, the guys might not even be playing penguins for all they know- but they’ve already been recording for the film this week. I’m visualising… a narwhal and an arctic cod, what about you?

Disney’s The Sorcerer’s Apprentice is currently shooting in New York City and the gossip sites have the first look at the film’s cast. JustJared has the first photos of Nicolas Cage (WTF?) filming a scene in a subway station with co-star Jay Baruchel.
Loosely adapted from the classic story from Fantasia, and based in modern-day Manhattan, Baruchel stars as Cage’s Apprentice, who gets into trouble when the broomstick he’s tasked to do his chores while the Sorcerer is away somehow develops a mind of its own. Alfred Molina, not pictured, plays an evil sorcerer. I enjoyed the first National Treasure film (on a pure popcorn level) and am willing to give Jon Turteltaub another chance after Book of Secrets. Celebrity-Gossip has a bunch of photos of Teresa Palmer (Bedtime Stories), who plays Baruchel’s love interest. We’ve included one after the jump.
