With the help of a mysterious pill that enables the user to access 100 percent of his brain abilities, a struggling writer becomes a financial wizard, but it also puts him in a new world with lots of dangers.
Clark Kent, one of the last of an extinguished race disguised as an unremarkable human, is forced to reveal his identity when Earth is invaded by an army of survivors who threaten to bring the planet to the brink of destruction.
Three buddies wake up from a bachelor party in Las Vegas, with no memory of the previous night and the bachelor missing. They make their way around the city in order to find their friend before his wedding.
Four magicians each answer a mysterious summons to an obscure address with secrets inside. A year later, they are the Four Horsemen, big time stage illusionists who climax their sold out Las Vegas show with a bank apparently robbed for real. This puts agents Dylan Rhodes of the FBI and Alma Dray of Interpol on the case to find out how they did it. However, this mystery proves difficult to solve even with the insights of the professional illusion exposer, Thaddeus Bradley. What follows is a bizarre investigation where nothing is what it seems with illusions, dark secrets and hidden agendas galore as all involved are reminded of a great truth in this puzzle: the closer you look, the less you see.

Isla Fisher got into difficulty while filming the piranha tank scene. The top of the tank remained opened so that Fisher would be able to swim to the top to get some air, and there was also an emergency lever inside the tank that, if pulled, would alert the crew that she needed help. During one take, Fisher was running out of air and tried to swim to the top, but the chains on the handcuffs she was wearing got stuck on the bottom of the tank, so she was unable to swim to the top or pull the lever. She then attempted to alert the crew by hitting the glass of the tank, but since her character is supposed to be panicked and scared in the scene, the crew thought she was acting. She was stuck for 3 minutes before the stunt coordinator finally realized that something was wrong after he noticed that her handcuffs were stuck. See more »

[about Agent Fuller]
Please convey my deepest apologies to your colleague out there. I'm really sorry about this whole Tranny Tuesday thing, I was out of line.
It's an arrangement he and his wife have, or might not have, if you believe everything Agent Fuller's saying. Correct me, but isn't there a proud tradition in the FBI of men wearing dresses?

1. Painful attempt to create mystery 2. Painful attempt to instigate "doubt" with the cheap historical miss use to create nonsense. So there is a "puppet master" out there?, give a break.
3. Horrible suggestions. So according to the script, the audience should not ask because is better to stay ignorant. Is this how propaganda is delivered in 2012? I may ask. Suggesting the audience to be submissive and turn around and go home? Different context, I know. So beside being a waist of time. What is the purpose of the movie? If this is interesting for a movie producer, .. than anything and everything is worth being a movie with such expenses.
