PG-13 | | Drama, Mystery, Sci-Fi
After a tragic accident two stage magicians engage in a battle to create the ultimate illusion whilst sacrificing everything they have to outwit the other.
When Andy Serkis' character is first introduced, he makes a reference to a magic trick where you guess the item in a person's pocket. This is the exact same trick that fooled Serkis' character Gollum in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (2012).

When Angier gives the first show of his last 100, he explains the risks of the underwater-unleashing trick. The camera switches between shots of him and Borden, and we see the crowd behind Borden (soundlessly) clapping although Angier is not done explaining.
