Anyone seen the trailer for this yet? It looks amazing. It's a movie about dueling magicians starring Christian Bale, Hugh Jackman, Michael Caine, David F'n Bowie, and Scarlett Johannson. It's also directed by Christopher Nolan of Batman Begins and Memento fame. I cannot wait for this one.
So was "Sanford and Son," but I was talking about the past few years. I think there's been something like a half dozen series adapted from British series around the time of "The Office" or since, and they've all failed.
