History recreates vintage Houdini posters with Adrien Brody to promote original miniseries

On Sept. 1 and 2, History will debut a two-night scripted miniseries called Houdini, chronicling the life of famed escape artist Harry Houdini (born Ehrich Weiss). Adrien Brody stars in the production, which follows the illusionist as he finds fame, engages in espionage, battles spiritualists and encounters the greatest names of the era. Kristen Connolly costars as Bess, the love of Harry’s life and his right hand when it came to many of his feats.


Adding to the realism of the production, iconic, vintage posters of Houdini have been recreated to feature Adrien Brody’s likeness, and will be featured in the miniseries. The posters are below; what do you think?

Houdini airs Sept. 1 and 2 at 9pm ET/PT on History.
