First Look: Monica Bellucci in Disney's The Sorcerer's Apprentice
I really hate paparazzi photos. They're always completely out of context, we never know if this is how it'll look finished, what they're even doing, or how far into the movie the scene being shot occurs. And as much as I know it's rarely helpful for a film, sometimes we just can't help ourselves, like today. Just Jared posted a few photos of Italian actress Monica Bellucci on the set of Disney's upcoming movie The Sorcerer's Apprentice that also stars Nicolas Cage and Jay Baruchel. There have been a lot of paparazzi shots from this floating around because its been shooting in New York City, but I wanted to feature these shots today.
These are the only recent Sorcerer's Apprentice photos I've actually wanted to share, not only because Bellucci is gorgeous and it's great to see her in action, but because they actually look interesting. Bellucci plays the character Veronica, a sorceress and the long-lost love of Cage's character, Balthazar Blake. The Sorcerer's Apprentice is being directed by Jon Turteltaub (National Treasure). They are still currently shooting in New York City and have been plagued by production problems including car accidents and personal injuries. It's currently scheduled for release on July 16th, 2010 next summer. Your thoughts?
