Magic City got renewed by Starz for a second season before the first season ever started, and two lucky readers will find out why as we’ll be giving away two blu-ray copies of the show next month. You can check out the latest trailer clip below.
Magic City didn’t have a big splash like Starz other big hit Spartacus: Vengeance, but I got to watch it all in one sitting, and this was a sweet surprise of a show. After a while, movies and tv shows about Las Vegas start to blend together, but this one really stood out with some great acting and stories. If you’ve not seen it, you’re in for a treat, and two readers will get their sweet treat next week when we give away two blu-ray copies courtesy of Anchor Bay.
Magic City Synopsis
Dangerous and decadent, “Magic City” begins in 1959, in Miami’s Miramar Playa Hotel where hotelier Ike Evans (Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Watchmen, Texas Killing Fields) is conjuring up ways to finance his dream. He has essentially sold his soul to the devil: mob boss Ben “The Butcher” Diamond (Danny Huston, The Kingdom). Ike’s wife Vera (Olga Kurylenko, Quantum of Solace), a former showgirl, and his three children think he is an honorable man, but he just can’t break his pact with the most notorious criminal in town. So Ike’s life is a façade: his home and his business must be kept separate – but does he have the sleight of hand to pull it off?
“MAGIC CITY: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON” also features stand-out performances by Steven Strait (City Island); Christian Cooke (Cemetery Junction); Jessica Marais (“Packed to the Rafters”); Yul Vazquez (American Gangster); Dominik Garcia-Lorido (City Island); Kelly Lynch (“The L Word”) and Elena Satine (Just Go With It).
Bonus Features Include:
• Starz Studios: MAGIC CITY
• The Cars of MAGIC CITY
• The Style of MAGIC CITY
• Building An Empire
• The Golden Age of Music
• Miami Beach: The Real MAGIC CITY
“MAGIC CITY: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON” was created by writer and executive producer Mitch Glazer (The Recruit, Scrooged).
