I'm not entirely sure why, but magicians really seem to be in this year. In the past couple weeks we've seen the release of both Oz The Great and Powerful and The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, two films featuring lead characters who are illusionists. And it's not going to just stop there. On May 31st Louis Leterrier will release his brand new film, the magic-filled Now You See Me - and it seems that the marketing push has just begun.
Summit Entertainment has released the first poster for the upcoming thriller, as seen above, as well as three new stills that effectively show off the movie's impressive ensemble cast. You can check out the stills below and click each one to see it in its highest resolution.
You may remember the title from the first trailer that was released all the way back in November last year, but we haven't seen or heard much since then. Earlier this month we learned that the movie was pushed up on the release schedule from June 7 to May 31st, but we wonder how that will affect the box office in a very crowded summer calendar. When Now You See Me arrives in theaters it will be competing with Iron Man 3, Star Trek Into Darkness, The Hangover Part III and Fast & Furious 6, meaning that it's going to have to pull out all the stops to get movie-going audiences' attention.
Featuring a cast that includes Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine, Dave Franco, Isla Fisher, Melanie Laurent, Elias Koteas and Common, Now You See Me centers on a group of incredibly talented illusionists who have one seriously impressive final act that involves magically robbing a bank and giving all of the money to their specially selected audience - all of whom are experiencing financial difficulties.
