Not only is it a film of that very same and dazzlingly good book, but also IT'S GOT CHRISTIAN BALE IN IT.
And Hugh Jackman. And David Bowie. This is huge. Am I dreaming? Why didn't anyone tell me? OH MY GOD.
I'm sorry, did I forget to mention that Christian Bale is in it playing a Victorian magician with an East London accent? I think I did. 'kinell, as they say.
Seems like a good enough reason to christen this new and excellent icon, really.
