“Their first act was just a set up.”
The trailer opens with Thaddeus Bradley (Morgan Freeman) enticing you to take another look of the Four Horsemen in Now You See Me 2.
Now You See Me was a fun popcorn movie that received mixed critic reviews but a hit in the box-office, doubling it’s $75 Million production budget worldwide.
The trailer didn’t much any give clues to the plot (kinda like the first half of the first film) and only gives us cool magic (just like the first film). Isla Fisher’s absence is a letdown to some fans (blame it on pregnancy) however it’s fun to see that Daniel Radcliffe is playing a tech prodigy who’s not pretty good in performing tricks.
If you loved the first film, the sequel promises to deliver the magic again on June 10, 2016.
Synopsis: THE FOUR HORSEMEN [Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Dave Franco, Lizzy Caplan] return for a second mind-bending adventure, elevating the limits of stage illusion to new heights and taking them around the globe. One year after outwitting the FBI and winning the public’s adulation with their Robin Hood-style magic spectacles, the illusionists resurface for a comeback performance in hopes of exposing the unethical practices of a tech magnate. The man behind their vanishing act is none other than WALTER MABRY [Daniel Radcliffe], a tech prodigy who threatens the Horsemen into pulling off their most impossible heist yet. Their only hope is to perform one last unprecedented stunt to clear their names and reveal the mastermind behind it all.
