To See: The Illusionist

The only thing better than a good, supernatural mystery story is a good, supernatural mystery story in an historical setting. So sign me up for an August 18th showing of The Illusionist, in which a magician in turn-of-the-century Vienna falls in love with a princess and uses his powers to destabilize the royal family and try to win her from the prince she's engaged to.

And the cast? How about Edward Norton as the magician, Jessica Biel as the princess, Rufus Sewell as her fiancé, and Paul Giamatti as a police inspector trying to figure out what the heck's going on.

You can see not really a trailer, but a series of scenes from it here.
