Now You See Me trailer shows heist flick with a magic twist
Starring the interesting and fresh combination of Jesse Eisenberg, Isla Fisher, Woody Harrelson, Dave Franco (brother of James), Morgan Freeman (who provides the voice-over, duh), Michael Caine, Mark Ruffalo and Melanie Laurent, Now You See Me takes the heist movie genre and adds a pinch of magic dust and razzle-dazzle. The Four Horsemen, who steal from the rich and give to the poor, use the power of illusion, misdirection, grandiose spectacle and illusion to fool the crowds.
Of course, slight of hand isn't going to be enough of an explanation for how these massive, cross-country robberies are taking place and with FBI agents in hot pursuit, these tricky masters of deception are going to have to pull off the ultimate con in order to stay out of jail.
Directed by Louis Leterrier (Clash of the Titans, Transporter), the first trailer for Now You See Me has just been released and it looks to be not only a drastic change of pace for the typically neurotic Eisenberg, complete with straightened locks and facial hair, but a fun time for the whole A-list cast.
