New Releases: July 14

1. The Sorcerer’s Apprentice (Disney, 3,385 Theaters, 111 Minutes, Rated PG): You have to hand it to Disney. They’re a multi-billion dollar media conglomerate, could probably foolishly waste money on original properties, but instead they are thrifty and expand bits of their pre-existing properties into full length films.

I mean, after they took a ride from their theme park and made it into the successful Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, repurposing a segment from their legendary Fantasia film into a full-length movie should be easy.

Unfortunately, this won’t be a full length feature focusing on Mickey Mouse borrowing a wizard’s hat and robe and creating magic to classic music. It features Nicolas Cage training Jay Baruchel in the ways of the sorcerer.

For what it is–your typical young man finds himself thrust into being a hero–it seems to be quite well made.
