Despite being marketed by the studio since last December, Disney’s special effects film The Sorcerer’s Apprentice has been pulling in ultimately underwhelming numbers since coming out on Wednesday. The expensive Nicolas Cage fantasy movie–budgeted at a reported¬†$150 million–made only a modest $17 million during its opening weekend, giving it a five day total of $24 million. Meanwhile, Universal’s Despicable Me saw a solid second weekend, and has made more than $118 million in its first ten days of release.
