Are You Ready For DEATH DEFYING ACTS!!!
Hey folks, Harry here... This film played last year at Toronto, but we haven't heard much about it since then. It's opening in the UK this August, but as of yet - it doesn't yet have a scheduled U.S. release. I'm praying that we get it though. It's directed by Gillian Armstrong (LITTLE WOMEN & OSCAR AND LUCINDA) - And with a cast including Saoirise Ronan, Timothy Spall, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Guy Pearce as Harry Houdini!!! Here's the trailer...

HvB: Requiem in this bitch. Oh, and actually the trailer didn't really sell the movie to me. I guess its just Prestige/Illusionist fatigue as I saw both of those again recently. Prestige is fucking awesome, btw.

and wait for Penn and Teller the movie. Side note, you should read Penn's book Sock Monkey. Damn good book.

Could it possibly be as cool as David Bowie as Tesla...??? This looks pretty interesting, although have to wait until a better trailer comes out...where's the glorious quicktime? <BR> <BR> Iron Man casting news! <BR> <BR> http://tinyurl.com/3dumdu

I'm so glad Guy Pearce is back. He completely ruled in LA Confidential and Memento.

Any movie with this guy is worth watching. Even that one where he switches bodies with that chick.

But I can try. A psychic (Catherine Zeta Jones) sets out to scam the great Harry Houdini (Guy Pearce) who’s obsessed with learning what his dying mother’s last words were. But instead, here’s a shocker, she falls in love with him. Now, if there’s an Academy Award for best performance by a wig, I think Guy Pearce’s is a shoo-in. I mean, it takes a pretty special wig to turn a lean Australian into a stocky Jew from Appleton, Wisconsin. I’d go so far as to call it the best wig since Fletch (here’s Fletch, he’s 6’5, 6’9 with the afro). Too bad the rest of the movie wasn’t up to the wig’s high standards. In fact, the film has such staggeringly awful, trite dialogue, I got dizzy from rolling my eyes. (sample line: “the real chains were the ones on Harry’s heart”).

The fact that Tony Grisoni wrote the script is the most exciting element to me.

sorry, someone above praised this sucky movie, so i thought someone should counter it. might as well be me. i'm too tired to discuss why it sucks now. but trust me, it sucks. <p> no no... i love smart films. hence, prestige sucks.
