It’s actually hard to imagine a film scheduled to be released early 2013 is been tipped as one of the most anticipated is to be directed by the man who brought us the terrible Clash Of The Titans remake Louis Letterier. Now You See Me a magician heist flick starring quite an impressive cast which includes Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Mark Ruffalo, Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman, Isla Fisher, Dave Franco and Melanie Laurent.
This certainly looks like to be a cool film ala Ocean’s Eleven and if Letterier is to break the mold of generic drivel he’s more renowned for like The Incredible Hulk, The Transporter Now You See Me might just help the director get the break he needs to help him to big and better things. The good folks over at Collider have gotten their hands on the promo artwork and the first synopsis for the film and it looks like it’s lots of magic!Magic! As the film hasn’t started filming the poster is basic however the synopsis does give us a little scope and confirms the roles of the charcacters.
January 18th 2013 is the release date set for USA I do the UK&Irish date is the same or roughly not long after and not the Brazilian date which is set for December 2013!
The Four Horsemen, a magic super-group led by the charismatic ATLAS (Jesse Eisenberg), perform a pair of high-tech magic shows, first astonishing audiences by robbing a bank on another continent, and then exposing a white-collar criminal and funneling his millions into the audience members’ bank accounts.
FBI Special Agent DYLAN (Mark Ruffalo) is determined to make the magicians pay for their crimes—and to stop them before they pull off what promises to be an even more audacious heist. But he’s forced to partner with ALMA (Melanie Laurent), an Interpol detective about whom he is instantly suspicious. Out of desperation he turns to THADDEUS (Morgan Freeman), a famed magic debunker, who claims the bank heist was accomplished using disguises and video trickery. One thing Dylan and Alma agree on is that the Horsemen must have an outside point person, and that finding him (or her) is key to ending the magicians’ crime spree. Could it be Thaddeus? Or Alma? Or could it really be…magic?
As pressure mounts and the world awaits the Horsemen’s spectacular final trick, Dylan and Alma race to find an answer. But it soon becomes painfully clear that staying one step ahead of these masters of illusion is beyond the skills of any one man—or woman.
