Nicolas Cage is crazier in Sorcerer's Apprentice trailer

Can't get enough of Nicolas Cage and his crazy hair and crazy eyes? Check out the new trailer, which has gone live on Apple.com, for the upcoming live-action Disney fantasy movie The Sorcerer's Apprentice below, as well as some new images.

It's from the team behind Disney and Cage's National Treasure, producer Jerry Bruckheimer and director Jon Turteltaub, and it updates the animated Mickey Mouse short from Fantasia to a modern-day New York setting. Cage plays the Sorcerer, with Jay Baruchel as his apprentice.

The adventure film also stars Alfred Molina, Teresa Palmer, Monica Bellucci and Toby Kebbell. Here's the official description.

In The Sorcerer's Apprentice, Balthazar Blake (Cage) is a master sorcerer in modern-day Manhattan trying to defend the city from his arch-nemesis, Maxim Horvath (Molina). Balthazar can't do it alone, so he recruits Dave Stutler (Baruchel), a seemingly average guy who demonstrates hidden potential, as his reluctant protege. 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.
Looks like a pretty big movie to us, kinda Harry Potter meets Spider-Man.
