The Illusionist, Trailer Stream
In Cinemas Across The Uk On 2nd March 2007. In a world where nothing is as it appears The Illusionist is a supernatural mystery that that combines romance, politics and magic.
In the latest film from the producers of the OscarÂ® winners Crash and Sideway, the film stars Academy AwardÂ® nominees Edward Norton (Fight Club, American History X) and Paul Giamatti (Cinderella Man, Sideways) as two men pitted against each other in a battle of wits....
Norton plays a mysterious stage magician, Eisenheim, who bends nature's laws to his will in front of awestruck crowds. Giamatti co-stars as Vienna's shrewd Chief Inspector Uhl, a man committed to uphold the law and for whom magic holds no place in his ordered world.
