Oh, the perks of having an office in New York City! Disney's 'The Sorcerer's Apprentice' was filmed in Manhattan and Moviefone got to visit the set -- and talk to its stars -- even Nicolas Cage!
Cage has had great success recently as the star of the 'National Treasure' adventure franchise, but he told AOL that though the films have similar vibes, 'The Sorcerer's Apprentice' is more about "magic and fantasy" than history. It centers on Balthazar Blake (Nicolas Cage), a master sorcerer in modern-day Manhattan who has to defend the city from his arch-nemesis, Maxim Horvath (Alfred Molina). He recruits Dave Stutler (Jay Baruchel), a seemingly average guy who demonstrates hidden potential, as his reluctant apprentice. 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.
