Movie Trailer Review: The Prestige

Another impressive poster.

To see the trailer for yourself, go here: http://www.apple.com/trailers/touchstone/theprestige/

When you first read that Christopher Nolan is directing a movie starring Hugh Jackman, Christian Bale, Michael Caine, and Scarlett Johansson, it kinda sounds like a super-awesome Batman meets Wolverine movie. But, alas, it is not.

That said, after watching the trailer for The Prestige, having no idea what the movie was about before seeing it, it is now on the top of my list of 2006 movies I'm most looking forward to seeing. It does a great job in establishing the tense mood of the movie (or at least, I hope it's a tense mood, given the trailer and all), and introducing the main plot and meaning behind the movie's name.

The Prestige is about rival magicians Jackman and Bale, each determined to pull off the best trick. It appears that Bale does so, but the nature of this trick seems rather unnatural. The trailer shows a lot of quick clips that show that the movie should be quite the adventure, without giving the entire plot of the movie away (since I'm still not sure what it's all about). A great piece of advertising that introduces an unknown property (a rarity in today's moviescape) without giving it all away before anyone sees it.

The Verdict: I'll definitely be seeing this one, thanks almost entirely to this trailer.
