    The clips are classy,the cast is excellent and Norton in particular seems on form
    It's also good to see Biel trying to branch out from the norm

    You don't get too much more of a way to draw me to a movie in terms of actors than Ed Norton AND Paul Giamatti. Adding the deliciousness of Jessica Biel is the garentee of my attendance.

    Ed Norton is an amazing actor. I'll definitely check it out. I wish the guy could have been nominated for an Oscar for his role as King Baldwin IV in Kingdom of Heaven. In the brief period of time he was on, he stole every scene, and he did it without having his face seen.

    Can't wait. It looks very cool. And Paul Giamatti with Edward Norton... It should be good. :up: :)

    I'm pretty sure this pic is from the movie. It's from Hollywood Reporter.

    That was an amazing performace.

    I tired to impress a girl once by using my powers to undermine the stability of the royal house of Vienna. Turns out she was after my brother, what a waste of time and effort that was.

    My thoughts exactly Carmine,compared to the Prestige and Hollywoodland posters this is pretty poor

    Looks good. I'm more hyped for The Prestige. I'll see both though.
