Now You See Me was a sleeper hit when it was released in 2013, and one would assume Now You See Me 2 would follow suit. Though director Louis Leterrier moved on from the franchise to direct The Brothers Grimsby, filmmaker Jon Chu has taken over the reigns. Expect Chu (G.I. Joe: Retaliation), whose last film was the box office bomb Jem and the Holograms, to get back on track with this installment.
With Now You See Me 2, the Four Horsemen (Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Dave Franco, Lizzy Caplan) are at the peak of their powers as illusionists, and now they have to pull off an elaborate heist for tech prodigy Walter Mabry (Daniel Radcliffe). Though having Daniel Radcliffe as part of your ensemble is always a bonus, one wonders if he’ll be convincing as the resident bad guy. However, Now You See Me proved that, along with the magic tricks, there are narrative twists and turns which will keep moviegoers guessing.
The teaser trailer to Now You See Me 2 has just been released. Check it out below and tell us what you think!
Now You See Me 2 opens June 10, 2016.
