From the trailer, the only thing that keeps this from being the genuine article is a role for the director himself. Or someone playing his facsimile.
Emma Stone and Colin Firth star as a psychic medium and a Houdini-esque magician out to debunk her claims. (And wear yellow-face.) Also starring Marcia Gay Harden, Hamish Linklater, Erica Leerhsen, Jacki Weaver, Simon McBurney, Eileen Atkins, Jeremy Shamos and Antonia Clarke. Coming from Sony Pictures on July 25th.
