Sorcerer's Apprentice Good Guys Get Character Posters
We got a hefty dose of terror the other day in the form of two new character posters for The Sorcererís Apprentice, one featuring the villainous Maxim Horvath (Alfred Molina) and the other the menacing wizard, Sun Lok (Gregory Woo). Now three more posters give a taste of the brighter side, highlighting the sorcerer himself, Balthazar Blake (Nicolas Cage), his female counterpart the sorceress Veronica (Monica Bellucci), and his apprentice, Dave (Jay Baruchel). The Sorcerer is premiering exclusively at Slash Film, but we have the other two for you below.
I love the digitally rendered painting-style. Rather than just having the actors glare into a camera with the special effects done post-shoot, this technique seamlessly blends the real elements with the CGI extras. (Want to see an example of such a failure? Refer back to those Percy Jackson character posters here.) I still think the nameplates are a little harsh, but hey, thatís only a minor detail; these are still so much more stimulating to look at than the majority of promotional material out there.
