When Magicians Attack: Trio of Jackman, Bale, and Nolan pull a sophisticated rabbit out of the hat in The Prestige.
Cast: Hugh Jackman, Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Piper Perabo, Rebecca Hall
Every great magic trick consists of three acts. The first act is called "The Pledge"; The magician shows you something ordinary, but of course... it probably isn't. The second act is called "The Turn"; The magician makes his ordinary some thing do something extraordinary. Now if you're looking for the secret... you won't find it, that's why there's a third act called, "The Prestige"; this is the part with the twists and turns, where lives hang in the balance, and you see something shocking you've never seen before.
