The Number 23 is a suspense film starring Jim Carrey, Virginia Madsen, and Danny Huston, directed by Joel Schumacher. It was released on February 23 2007 and was released on DVD on July 24 2007. The plot involves an obsession with the 23 Enigma, an esoteric belief that all incidents and events are directly connected to the number 23, some permutation of the number 23, or a number related to the number 23. Although the 23 Enigma is pervasive in the works of author Robert Anton Wilson, including the 1998 film 23, he is not acknowledged in the credits for this film, which is not a remake of 23. This is the second film with Schumacher and Carrey, the first being Batman Forever. The Number 23 is director Joel Schumacher’s 23rd TV-film project. During the 23rd and zero zero seconds of the movie, a hologram of the number 23 appears then vanishes instantly.
