"Now You See Me" pulled off an improbable, but dazzling trick: Getting itself a sequel.
The 2013 magician heist movie was not, shall we say, well-received by critics, but it earned over $350 million worldwide. Now, Summit has released the trailer for the sequel, "Now You See Me," and it brings back the Four Horseman for more trickery.
After outwitting the FBI last time, and gaining the love of the public for their Robin Hood-style antics, the Horsemen (Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Dave Franco, and Lizzy Caplan) return for a big comeback performance. Unfortunately, a tech magnate (Daniel Radcliffe) bullies them into pulling off what sounds like an impossible heist. They'll need all their magic skills to pull it off and reveal the mastermind behind the whole dastardly plan.
The sequel looks much in line with the original, with Mark Ruffalo, Michael Caine, and Morgan Freeman all reprising their roles. We'll see if it can make moviegoers' money disappear like the first one did.
"Now You See Me 2" opens June 10.
