Those cheeky, magical masterminds aka the Four Horseman are back for Now You See Me 2 hitting theaters in June 2016.
Now You See Me tumbled into the box office and our hearts in May 2013. Four magicians: Daniel (Jesse Eisenberg), Merritt (Woody Harrelson), Henley (Isla Fisher), and Jack (Dave Franco), all tremendously talented, are mysteriously summoned to New York City. There they find a set of blueprints that make way for them to attempt to put their dislikes of each other aside, to allow their lives to be changed forever.
Cut to a year later and the four magicians are now the Four Horsemen, an illusionist group with a sold out show in Las Vegas. At a performance the group apparently robs a bank that brings them to the attention of Interpol agent Alma Dray (Mélanie Laurent) and FBI agent Dylan Rhodes (Mark Ruffalo). As the film plays out, we realize nothing is as it seems, because in the end it was all an elaborate ruse put on by Dylan Rhodes to ruin Thaddeus Bradley (Morgan Freeman). Now You See Me also starred Michael Caine as Arthur Tressler.
However, now we realize “The first act was just the setup, for an even bigger reveal.”
The Four Horseman have returned for Now You See Me 2, but this time around Henley Reeves isn’t present, but another magician Lula (Lizzy Caplan). This new group of four (Daniel, Merritt, Jack, and Lula) are coming to hopefully expose Walter (Daniel Radcliffe), an unethical tech magnate.
Check out the newly released teaser trailer, narrated by Morgan Freemen, for Now You See Me 2, coming to theaters June 10, 2016!
REMEMBER: “If you think you’ve seen it all, take another look.”
THE FOUR HORSEMEN [Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Dave Franco, Lizzy Caplan] return for a second mind-bending adventure, elevating the limits of stage illusion to new heights and taking them around the globe. One year after outwitting the FBI and winning the public’s adulation with their Robin Hood-style magic spectacles, the illusionists resurface for a comeback performance in hopes of exposing the unethical practices of a tech magnate. The man behind their vanishing act is none other than WALTER MABRY [Daniel Radcliffe], a tech prodigy who threatens the Horsemen into pulling off their most impossible heist yet. Their only hope is to perform one last unprecedented stunt to clear their names and reveal the mastermind behind it all. (via Summit Entertainment)
