(click for trailer)

The first film from Sam Bain and Jesse Armstrong with Mac and PC in the lead roles and an all-British cast with the lovely Jessica Stevenson bringing up the rear. After the slightly disappointing "Hot Fuzz", could this be the British film of the year?

We're told:

Lifelong friends Harry and Karl (David Mitchell and Robert Webb) are the greatest magic double act in the country. But after a guillotine illusion goes horribly and spectacularly wrong, their friendship and their careers are finished. Now, down on his luck and out of cash, Harry sets his sights on the prize money of the prestigious 'International Magic Shield' tournament. But to win he will have to compete against the world's oddest (and saddest) magicians - including his deadly rival Karl, performing under the guise of ridiculous psychic 'The Mindmonger'.

Awesome!

Oh no, it's going to be so so bad.

"Slightly disappointing Hot Fuzz"?

We really must have been watching different films, Fuzz was excellent (even if it felt like you had no idea where you were going for the first half).

Gotta love Mitchell and Webb though, so here's hoping this won't end up being a sligthly unsettling and depressing affair.
