Now You See Me Synopsis
Four talented magicians mesmerize an international audience with a series of bold and original heists, all the while pursuing a hidden agenda that has the FBI and Interpol scrambling to anticipate their next move in Now You See Me, a visually spectacular blend of astonishing illusions and exhilarating action from director Louis Leterrier (Clash of the Titans).

The Four Horsemen, a magic super-group led by the charismatic J.Daniel Atlas (Jesse Eisenberg), perform a pair of high-tech, high-profile magic shows, first amazing audiences by remotely robbing a Paris bank while in Las Vegas, and then exposing a white-collar criminal and funneling his millions into the audience members' bank accounts, baffling the authorities with their intricately planned capers.

FBI Special Agent Dylan Rhodes (Mark Ruffalo) is determined to make the magicians pay for their crimes—and to stop them before they pull off what promises to be an even more audacious heist. But he's forced to partner with Alma (Mélanie Laurent), an Interpol detective about whom he is instantly suspicious. Out of desperation, he turns to Thaddeus Bradley (Morgan Freeman), a famed magic debunker, who claims the Paris bank trick was actually a meticulously planned illusion. Dylan and Alma begin to wonder if the Horsemen have an outside point person. If so, finding him (or her) would be the key to ending the magicians' crime spree. But who could it be? Or could it really be... magic?

As pressure mounts and the world awaits the Horsemen's spectacular final trick, Dylan and Alma race to stay one step ahead of the magicians. But it soon becomes clear that outmaneuvering these masters of illusion is beyond the skills of any one man—or woman.

Franco went on to explain that a big portion of Now You See Me 2 will be spent exploring who this tight-knit band of illusionists really are off of the stage. As he mentions, they spent so much time in the first movie on a stage, in various states of performance, and the team now wants to figure out who they are as individuals....

This summer we saw an egregious number of blockbuster flops, including Gore Verbinski's The Lone Ranger, M.

Sometimes a great ensemble cast ends up bogging down a film with added plotlines (see other Lionsgate movie The Big Wedding), but for other stories, a nicely honed ensemble cast can make a fun summer movie stand out from the pack a little more....

If this trailer left you a little lost raise your hand. I get the basic premise: four magicians perform bank robberies during their shows and Robin Hood-style give all the money they take back to audience members. Except that the trick they’re doing with robberies isn’t really the trick at all. The trick they’re doing is something more than the really big trick and we don’t know exactly what it is, or what it’s about because the illusions they create are meant to hide the motivations......

If Gob Bluth taught us anything, aside form how to make a Segway look like a cool mode of transportation (Ok, cool when cruising next to a set of stairs, anyway), it's that magic isn't a "trick." It's an "illusion." And we saw quite a few of those in the extended clip from Now You See Me, which clocks in at nearly four minutes and comes courtesy of Fandango. Of course, it cuts out of us right as Isla Fisher is about to get devoured by piranhas. ...

Or the 7 train rumbling by in the background, loud and chaotic but all part of the charm you get when you sign up for New York City...
