About halfway through the trailer for Now You See Me, I thought it was like Ocean’s Eleven meets The Prestige and that was confirmed when Michael Caine showed up. Morgan Freeman takes over the voice over work though and the movie follows a quartet of magicians (Jesse Eisenberg, Isla Fisher, Woody Harrelson and Dave Franco) who moonlight as bank robbers who give their scores back to the people. Their act draws the attention of the authorities, led by Mark Ruffalo. It looks like it could be pretty fun but I wonder if they’re going to go into any weird sci fi territory like The Prestige did or if everything will be easily explained like Ocean’s Eleven. The movie is out in June next year and you can check out the trailer below.
I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
