In 2006, a couple of magician-themed movies were released in theaters. They were Christopher Nolan's The Prestige, which stars Hugh Jackman and Christian Bale and Neil Burger's The Illusionist starring Edward Norton, Paul Giamatti and Jessica Biel. Out of the two, The Prestige commands the upper hand due to its intriguing story and astounding final reveal. The Illusionist is not a bad movie in comparison but just a little lacking in conveying a tense storyline.
Just in time for the labor day weekend, Amazon.com is selling The Prestige on Blu-ray for a magical price of $9.99. So grab it while you can as that price would disappear in a flash!
