You thought they disappeared forever and this Summer The Four Horsemen of the Magic (not Apocalyptic) fame will unleash more tricks. In new Now You See Me 2 International Trailer Morgan Freeman is on the warpath, Harry Potter turns to magic but most of all it’s good to be positive!
The first act was only the beginning, now the second act the horse are on the run ,thanks to the boy wizard Potter!!!
In Now You See Me 2 , The Four Horsemen return for their 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. When the Horsemen are threatened 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.
No matter how much critics moaned at the quality of the first film we can’t deny this was a sleeper hit when you look at the box-office returns. It was a silly nonsensical unapologetic it what it delivered and though Jon M.Chu has taken over from Louis Leterrier it looks much the same again. Many critics mentioned the over reliance on CGI for the tricks , the second film seems to have toned down but still very energetic.
Daniel Radcliffe joins as the films antagonist but most of the son Michael Caine‘s character so expect revenge! So how do you fix the problem of the underused Isla Fisher character? Replace her with Lizzy Caplan. Fisher was apparently pregnant during film, but joined the first films director on Grimsby with her husband Sacha Baron Cohen. On what we’ve seen from this trailer Caplan might just be the right replacement as she does seem to fit into the tone of the film. Whatever your thoughts on the original film, there does look like a third film is coming!
Now You See Me 2 is set for a 4th July UK&Irish release date , Starring Jesse Eisenberg, Mark Ruffalo, Woody Harrelson, Dave Franco, Morgan Freeman and Jay Chou.
