Watch the Trailer for The Illusionist, From Triplets of Belleville Director Sylvain Chomet


It helps if you know Russian (it's a Russian trailer), but French animator Sylvain Chomet's latest film is about a magician "whose thunder is being stolen by emerging rock stars. Forced to accept increasingly obscure assignments in fringe theaters, garden parties and bars, he meets a young fan who changes his life forever." Yes! (Opens in France May 5.)
