OneRepublic’s smash hit Secrets is prominently featured in The Sorcerer’s Apprentice from Walt Disney Pictures and Jerry Bruckheimer and Walt Disney Studios Russia has offered up this cut of the popular music video which replaces the non-performance segments with clips from the upcoming movie. Interestingly enough, the scene where Balthazar Blake’s (Nicolas Cage) car flips through a mirror and exits into the streets of a reversed-New York was flipped in the video, so everything appears to be normal (the scene where older Dave first encounters Balthazar is also flipped, although that’s less of a plot point).
On July 6, OneRepublic will be teaming up with Alpha Rev to offer a free outdoor mini-concert in New York City’s Bryant Park in celebration of the world premiere of the film as well as Mayor Bloomberg’s declaration of July 6 as ‘Sorcerer’s Apprentice Day’ in New York City. The concert is expected to begin around 8:15 pm.
In another promotional video, this one released by Walt Disney Studios New Zealand, we not only get to see the relationship between Balthazar and his apprentice Dave Stutler (Jay Baruchel) but the video also goes on to explore Dave’s relationship with Becky Barnes (Teresa Palmer) and even features a tiny clip from when the two are children (although we have seen young Dave before, this is the first time we’ve seen young Becky).
