Rate-a-Trailer: Triplets of Belleville Director’s The Illusionist


What has the director of the gorgeous animated hit The Triplets of Belleville been doing for the past seven years? Well, after a few setbacks and a scrapped project, Sylvain Chomet is back with The Illusionist , a film about an aging, increasingly obsolete French magician who travels to Scotland and meets a girl who still believes in his magical powers. If that doesn’t have you geeking out yet, film nerds, know this: it’s based on a script that Jacques Tati wrote and never produced. And, of course, the animation is beautiful. The Illusionist comes out December 25th, making it the perfect Christmas gift for children of all ages. Are you as charmed by this first U.S. trailer as we are?
