Finally, a movie about magic that isn't bombarded with pesky teens in love. Here's the debut trailer for "Now You See Me," the upcoming crime caper that sees Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Isla Fisher and Dave Franco as a traveling team of world-class illusionists. But wait, behind all that smoke and mirrors lies a crew of Robin Hood-type criminals who use their magician skills to steal from corporate swindlers in order to give away cash and other valuables to their unsuspecting audiences. It's like if Lance Burton pulled a golden-plated bunny out of a hat. Ta-Da!
Here's the cast breakdown: Eisenberg is the sleight-of-hand man, Harrelson is the mentalist/hypnotist, Fisher is the escape artist, and Franco is the pickpocket expert. Plus, you got Michael Caine co-starring as the mark -- the Bernie Madoff-type businessman who's been targeted by the tricksters. And there's Mark Ruffalo as the FBI agent tracking the team's every move. What else do you need? How about Morgan Freeman for good measure! Directed by Louis Leterrier (Clash of the Titans, The Incredible Hulk), the movie opens next summer on May 31, 2013.
NOW YOU SEE ME pits an elite FBI squad in a game of cat and mouse against "The Four Horsemen," a super-team of the world's greatest illusionists. "The Four Horsemen" pull off a series of daring heists against corrupt business leaders during their performances, showering the stolen profits on their audiences while staying one step ahead of the law.
