Disney has released three new stills from "The Sorcerer's Apprentice", the first trailer of which was debuted earlier the same day. The first photo shows Nicolas Cage releasing a lightning ball from his hands. Another particular picture, which is much like the previously released still, captures him walking through a gate. Then, in the other image, he is featured alongside Jay Baruchel on the street of what looks like a China Town.
"The Sorcerer's Apprentice" is set in modern-day Manhattan where Cage's Balthazar Blake tries to defend the city from his arch-nemesis, Maxim Horvath. As he cannot do it alone, he recruits Baruchel's Dave Stutler, a seemingly average guy who demonstrates hidden potential, as his reluctant protege. Dave then has to get through an uneasy way to learn the art and science behind the sorcerer's magic. The drama fantasy is slated for a July 16, 2010 release date in the U.S.
