LOS ANGELES, CA (April 29, 2010) – Discover where reality ends and magic begins when The Illusionist arrives in a Blu-ray Disc + DVD combo pack June 8 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. An outstanding ensemble cast including Golden Globe® Winner* Ed Norton (Fight Club), Jessica Biel (Blade Trinity), Golden Globe® Winner** Paul Giamatti (Sideways) and Rufus Sewell (Tristan + Isolde) weave a tangled web of twists and turns in this mesmerizing tale that blurs the line between love and devotion, vigilance and mania and, ultimately, life and death.
The acclaimed illusionist Eisenheim (Norton) has not only captured the imaginations of all of Vienna, but also the interest of the ambitious Crown Prince Leopold (Sewell). But when Leopold’s new fiancé (Biel) rekindles a childhood fascination with Eisenheim, the Prince’s interest evolves into obsession… and suddenly the city’s Chief Inspector (Giamatti) finds himself investigating a shocking crime. But even as the Inspector engages him in a dramatic challenge of wills, Eisenheim prepares for his most impressive illusion yet.
