In “Death Defying Acts”, Guy Pearce plays Harry Houdini, and Catherine Zeta-Jones plays a very pretty Scottish psychic trying to gyp him using his mother. Don’t you hate it when that happens? We have a bunch of images from the movie (here), and today, another poster for the film (thumbnail to your left, bigger version below) has made its way online.

During Harry Houdini’s tour of Britain in 1926, the master escapologist enters into a passionate affair with a Scottish psychic. The psychic and her daughter attempt to con Houdini during a highly publicized séance to contact his mother whose death has haunted him for many years. However all does not go to plan…
Starring Guy Pearce, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Frankey Martyn, Timothy Spall, MacKay Crawford, and directed by Gillian Armstrong.
