Modern fantasy movies offer audiences an escape from the doldrums of everyday life, with exciting new worlds and adventures that could only take place outside of our reality. But what about magic movies set in the present day that fold the supernatural into the real world, making mundane everyday life just a little bit more magical?
From cult hits like Practical Magic to hard-hitting action flicks like The Last Witch Hunter, magical movies don't always have to be set in forests or castles to scratch that fantasy itch. Some are box-office bombs, others high-grossing critical failures, and there are even some childhood classics that fit the bill. Whatever you’re looking for, there’s definitely something for you below. And, no, Harry Potter isn’t included. Sorry, Potterheads.
