Summit Entertainment has unveiled a new trailer for the upcoming "Now You See Me" heist thriller, starring Jesse Eisenberg, Isla Fisher, Dave Franco, Woody Harrelson, Morgan Freeman, Mark Ruffalo and Michael Caine. Check it out below.
Plot: The movie pits an FBI squad against a super-team of the world's greatest illusionists, who pull off a series of daring bank heists during their performances, showering the profits on their audiences while staying one step ahead of the law.
The new movie is directed by Louis Leterrier (The Incredible Hulk) and is set to hit theaters on May 31st.
I find it very hard to believe that Louis Letterrier has made an intelligent film. This looks a bit like The Illusionist, in the sense that 'tricks' will not be explained fully causing confusion and disappointment in audiences. THe Prestige was more explanatory, and hence far, far superior. Not to mention acting, character and script were much stronger in the latter.
I bet Morgan is in on it. Also were the members of an audience at a Las Vegas magic show really stereotypical victims of 'hard times'.

"THe Prestige was more explanatory, and hence far, far superior."
Not really, unless you believe Nikolai Tesla and Hugh Jackman cooking up endless clones in the early 20th century is somehow intelligent...
As for this film, not watching the trailer. The cast seems solid enough, but the director is weak and the concept is tired and uninteresting. Rather watch a hundred old superior heist films than watch a new one that just lazily retreads all that's come before.
