From acclaimed filmmaker Christopher Nolan (“Memento,” “Batman Begins”) comes a thriller woven out of the stuff of illusions. In this twisting, turning tale of mystery, two Victorian-era magicians spark a powerful rivalry that builds into an escalating battle of tricks and an unquenchable thirst to uncover the other’s trade secrets. As these two remarkable men pit daring against desire, showmanship against science and ambition against friendship, the results are dangerous, deadly and deceptive.
Their rivalry is brought to life by two of today’s most compelling screen stars: Tony Award winner Hugh Jackman and Christian Bale. Joining them is an exceptional cast of diverse characters portrayed by two-time Oscar® winner Michael Caine, Scarlett Johansson, newcomer Rebecca Hall, rising actress Piper Perabo, fantasy film star Andy Serkis and icon David Bowie as the groundbreaking electrical genius Nikola Tesla.
