Walt Disney Studios and Miramax Films have just sent us some amazing new stills from some of their upcoming holiday releases which we have added to our existing galleries.

First up is The Tempest from famed director and Broadway wizard Julie Taymor. In her big-screen adaptation of Shakespeare’s mystical thriller The Tempest, Academy Award®–nominated Julie Taymor (“Across the Universe,” “Frida,” “Titus”) brings an original dynamic to the story by changing the gender of the sorcerer Prospero into the sorceress Prospera, portrayed by Oscar® winner Helen Mirren (“The Queen”). Prospera’s journey spirals through vengeance to forgiveness as she reigns over a magical island, cares for her young daughter, Miranda, and unleashes her powers against shipwrecked enemies in this exciting, masterly mix of romance, tragicomedy and the supernatural. The Tempest opens in limited release on December 10 and wide release one week later on December 17.

On this, the eve of the release of The Sorcerer’s Apprentice from Walt Disney Studios and Jerry Bruckheimer, Disney has released the following clip from the film they’ve aptly titled ‘You should run.’

In the clip, Balthazar Blake (Nicolas Cage) and his apprentice Dave Stutler (Jay Baruchel) have journeyed to New York City’s Chinatown on a quest to find the Grimhold which has been missing for the past ten years. Unfortunately they find that the Grimhold has already fallen into the hands of Maxim Horvath (Alfred Molina) who has just released Sun Lok (Gregory Woo) from his wooden prison. Dragons and hilarity ensue (with a ton of amazing f/x).
