The last time that Jesse Eisenberg and Woody Harrelson teamed up they worked together to try and protect each other from getting eaten during the global zombie apocalypse. In 2013, four years later, they will be robbing banks together with nothing more than magic.
Now You See Me, the new thriller from Incredible Hulk and Clash of the Titans director Louis Leterrier, won't actually be out until June, but already we're seeing a trailer for the stacked film, which, beyond Eisenberg and Harrelson, also stars Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine, Dave Franco, Isla Fisher, Melanie Laurent, Elias Koteas and Common. And you can see it below, courtesy of Yahoo!
Am I the only one that's just a little weirded out by the sight of Michael Caine being in a movie about magic that isn't The Prestige? Hopefully he's playing a totally different kind of role than he did in the Christopher Nolan movie, or that very well end up bothering me when I see the full thing.
Now You See Me follows a group of illusionists who it really pays to see live - literally. At the end of each show the team magically performs a bank heist and gives all of the money away, which leads to an investigation by the FBI into just how they pull the trick off. Produced by Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, the movie is set to be released by Summit Entertainment on June 7, 2013. Because the title is still more than half a year away there's isn't much more about it out in the world right now, but to read everything we have about it be sure to head over to our Blend Film Database.
