Yesterday The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 opened across the nation and one of the surprises (beyond the 15 minute melee in the finale), which funny enough had nothing to do with Twilight, came in the form of a trailer. The trailer in question was for the upcoming Jesse Eisenberg vehicle Now You See Me. What looks equal parts intriguing, comical and roller coaster-type fun, Summit Entertainment will unveil the illusionist heist flick Now You See Me next year and I bet it’ll be one helluva Summer popcorn film. This didn’t sound too impressive when it was announced some months ago but this stellar trailer (and cast!) has me singing a different tune now. Have a look, won’t you?
The Four Horsemen, a magic super-group led by the charismatic ATLAS (Jesse Eisenberg), perform a pair of astonishing high-tech magic shows. But FBI agents track this team of illusionists who pull off bank heists during their performances and funnel millions into the audience members’ bank accounts.
In Now You See Me, Jesse Eisenberg stars alongside quite an impressive cast including Isla Fisher, Woody Harrelson, Dave Franco, even Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman and Mark Ruffalo. The film, directed by Louis Leterrier, comes across looks like an energized and entertaining mix up of The Prestige, Ocean’s 11 and Lucky Number Slevin. In short, we CAN’T WAIT for this. For those interested, Summit Entertainment will be bringing Now You See Me to theaters next Summer on June 7th, 2013. Whatcha think? This look like some good fun or what?
