First Look: Nic Cage and Jay Baruchel in Sorcerer's Apprentice
Even though Knowing made a respectable $25 million at the box office this past weekend, I don't think Nic Cage's career is back on the right track. Some new photos of Cage in Disney's The Sorcerer's Apprentice, the live-action retelling of the classic Mickey Mouse story from Fantasia, have popped up tonight on the celeb gossip site Just Jared. I would say, don't be so quick to judge these and Cage's new hairdo and leather outfit, but I'm sure you've already made up your mind. I don't know if these will help Cage any more, or potentially ruin him entirely again, but honestly, I'm still looking forward to The Sorcerer's Apprentice.
So here's my argument for these photos. We all knew that they'd update this somehow, it's not like we'd literally see Jay Baruchel in a Mickey Mouse outfit. Just like in Enchanted, it's best to just let Disney and director Jon Turteltaub do whatever they want, let their imaginations run wild. And if this is what they came up with, for a specific scene which we have no context for (it could be the beginning, when the two first meet), then so be it. It's in our nature to be judgmental, as I am all the time, but I really don't have any complaints yet. I've still got high hopes for this, as some fun Disney entertainment. Thoughts?
