The Prestige

The pledge, the turn, the prestige, and now the drinking game. A staple of every Christopher Nolan movie marathon, The Prestige is widely regarded as one of, if not the best magician movies ever made. To be fair, if you actually attempt this drinking game, there’s a very good chance you won’t actually understand this film. Have fun!


Take a drink when:

  • You see either an electric bolt or someone is electrocuted.
  • You see silly facial hair
  • You look up how much a genius Tesla was.
  • You see a top hat or a cat.

Take a shot when:

  • You see a padlock.
  • There is a gunshot.

Chug when:

  • Christian Bale says, “Abracadabra.”

Pour one out:

  • For Christian Bale. (Drink one for the other Christian Bale)
