Now you see him, now you don’t

It looks like Death Defying Acts limited engagement was very limited indeed. The film played on only two screens in New York and LA for only one week.

It's a shame The Weinstein Company, who reportedly paid $5.5 million for the distribution rights, didn't do more to support the film. I thought it was pretty good.

For those who missed it, never fear. I expect Death Defying Acts will make an amazing reappearance on DVD. When we get news of exactly when that might be, we will let you know.

Death Defying Acts opens in New York and Los Angeles

Death Defying Acts, which stars Guy Pearce as Houdini and Catherine Zeta-Jones as a Scottish psychic, opens today in limited engagements in New York and Los Angeles.

In New York the film is playing at the Landmark’s Sunshine Cinema, 139-143 East Houston Street, East Village. In LA it’s playing at the Manns Chinese Theater 6 (multiplex attached to the famous Graumans Chinese theater) at 6801 Hollywood Blvd., Hollywood, (323) 777-3456.

LA showtimes for Friday, Saturday and Sunday are: 12:10pm, 2:40pm, 5:10pm, 7:40pm, & 10:20pm.

If you want to see this in a theater, my advice would be to move quick. These limited engagements may only last a week or less.

Harry Houdini for President

Magician Adam Steinfeld of Adam Steinfeld Magic Live fame sends us this political commercial for, yes, a "Harry Houdini for President" campaign.

Not sure what more I can say about this except...watch it and decide for yourself.
