There goes Nicolas Cage again. Just when Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans almost had us convinced that the man hadn’t forgotten how to act, and the prospect of him teaching a teen girl to kill in Kick-Ass had us wondering about a Cage resurgence, he goes and does a movie like this.

Walt Disney Pictures and Apple have revealed the first trailer for The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, from producer Jerry Bruckheimer and director John Turtletaub. The film stars Cage as a real-life sorcerer with some wicked cool powers (as seen in the trailer below) and Knocked Up‘s Jay Baruchel as his apprentice. Alfred Molina stars as an evil guy with evil powers and Teresa Palmer as an attractive girl who we can only assume steals the young man’s heart. Monica Bellucci and Toby Kebbell also star.

I’m hard pressed to come up with analysis at such a late hour, so let me just say this: the effects look cool and the film has a real National Treasure vibe to it’s story (Turtletaub at his best, thus far). Both of these work for the film, whereas Nic Cage’s hair-do works against it. Final score, one point for The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, which is in theaters July 16, 2010.
