Nicolas Cage says every movie is a "work of magic".

The Hollywood actor stars in The Sorcerer's Apprentice, an action fantasy which follows a sorcerer and his reluctant protege battling the forces of darkness in Manhattan.

The 46-year-old said: "I absolutely believe in magic. You can't really survive in the arts if you don't keep the magical child's mind alive."

He said: "Magic is very simple, isn't it? It's really about imagination plus willpower, focus in such a way to create conscious effects in the material world.

"So every book is a work of magic, every science experiment is a work of magic, every speech that moves people is a work of magic, every movie is a work of magic."

Speaking in Los Angeles while promoting the film, he said: "The route of this movie is how you're going to use the magic. Are you going to use it to get the best seat at the dinner table or are you going to use it to try and progress humanity?"
