David Blaine: What Is Magic?
David Blaine, creator of Street Magic, takes his unique brand of magic on a roadtrip, as he makes his way across the United States. He enters the Hurricane stricken Ninth Ward in New Orleans and changes some people’s luck by producing hundreds of dollars at their fingertips. Blaine brings his amazing magic to people who need it the most. When he returns home to New York City, viewers see him doing magic for some of his friends, including Orlando Bloom, world-renowned musician John Mayer and the Super Bowl World Champions New York Giants. Blaine also attempts a feat that ended Houdini's life, by taking a few punches by the toughest street fighter, Kimbo Slice. This all leads up to the most famous effect in magic, the Bullet Catch, in which David catches a .22 caliber bullet fired at point blank range into a small metal cup in his mouth. The Bullet Catch is considered one of the most dangerous feats of magic and many magicians have died attempting it. For the first time, the Bullet Catch was filmed using Phantom Camera technology, which shoot at 10,000 frames per second, allowing the viewer to see the bullet flying through the air right into the magician's mouth.moreless
