The Brothers Bloom doesn't hit theaters until May 29th, but the first seven minutes is online and embedded below for your viewing pleasure right now. It’s the new movie from Rian Johnson, the guy who did Brick which, seriously you oughta see.

Brothers Bloom stars Adrien Brody and Mark Ruffalo as con-men working a sweet con on Rachel Weisz, but you won’t see any of them in this seven minutes. This is the movie’s first seven minutes, and Johnson uses it to tell the story of where his con-men characters came from. Below you’ll watch them as wee tykes, working their first con to the perfectly chosen narration of misdirection expert Ricky Jay.
