"Seriously, how are they doing this?"
The Movie Illusion:
A boy with recently developed superpowers performs a talent show act in which he performs all sorts of tricks, from making a spilled pack of cards float into his hand, to stopping balls in the air mid-juggle. Of course, the real illusion is making all of this seem like it could just be a magician’s trick.
The increasingly unstable Andrew Detmer (Dane Dehaan)
How Did They Do That?
Well, obviously it is all achieved with Andrew’s growing telekinetic skills, but the illusion – that it’s all fake – is sold thanks to him deliberately starting off slow and clumsy. And by not doing anything too unrealistic on stage like, oh we don’t know, crushing a car without touching it.
