The Prestige Stills: Hugh Jackman, Christian Bale

From acclaimed filmmaker Christopher Nolan (Memento, Batman Begins), comes a mysterious story of two magicians whose intense rivalry leads them on a life-long battle for supremacy full of obsession, deceit and jealousy with dangerous and deadly consequences. From the time that they first met as young magicians on the rise, Robert Angier (Hugh Jackman) and Alfred Borden (Christian Bale) were competitors. However, their friendly competition evolves into a bitter rivalry making them fierce enemies-for-life and consequently jeopardizing the lives of everyone around them. Full of twists and turns, The Prestige is set against the backdrop of turn-of-the-century London.

The Prestige stars Hugh Jackman, Christian Bale, Scarlett Johansson, David Bowie, and Michael Caine.  The film was originally set for release on October 27th but Touchstone decided to move the film up a week to October 20th. Besides, how can you go wrong?  It’s Batman vs. Wolverine!!!!  Watch The Prestige trailer below!

    Oooooooooh!I’ve been a Christian Bale fan since a teenager…..being the same age as well…..I was mesmerized by him in Empire Of The Sun, and grew up with him and all his arty movies, awkward growing stages to the awsome male actor he is nowI was so worried when he took on Batman….I didn’t want him to be ripped to shreds for it. But this movie with his original London accent, mysterious presence with Hugh Jackman, Michael Caine who I adore and have seen over 20 of his movies, plus the charismatic David effing Bowie……….I CANNOT WAIT FOR THIS!!!Thanx so much Jared for featuring thisI’m your mate forever!!

    By the way I know he was born in Wales, but he has always had that London-ish accent in his early roles, never a hint of WelshJust saying……

    This looks awesome and I am so there. Apparently for me this is the year of Hugh Jackman, I don’t plan to miss a single film that he’s gonna be in, and it doesn’t hurt that I am completely enamoured by Christian Bale too.

  • Lee DC

    Another movie to spend my $8.50 on!

  • Ruth

    haha never thought about that Batman vs. Wolverine clever Jared! But seriously it seems like Christian only works with one director! Plus Scarlett got to work with Hugh twice?! amazing. In addition this movie looks way more interesting than the other magic movie with Edward Norton and Jessica Biel.
