One of the most intriguing films to come out of this year’s Sundance Film Festival features one of recent history’s most intriguing performers: The Amazing Johnathan.
Like the man himself, the first trailer for “The Untitled Amazing Johnathan Documentary” is pretty wild: After receiving a deadly diagnosis and being given a year to live, the rebellious and irreverent magician embarks on his final tour with filmmaker Ben Berman in tow.

“The Untitled Amazing Johnathan Documentary” arrives on Hulu and in select theaters on August 16.
