Now You See Me 2 follows one year on from Now You See Me‘s antics of outwitting the FBI and winning the public’s adulation with their Robin Hood-style magic spectacles as The Four Horsemen resurface for a comeback performance in hopes of exposing the unethical practices of a tech magnate.
And now a second trailer has been released.
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.
The film is directed by Jon M Chu and stars Lizzy Caplan, Jesse Eisenberg, Mark Ruffalo, Dave Franco, Woody Harrelson, Michael Caine, Sanaa Lathan, Henry Lloyd-Hughes and Jay Chou.
Now You See Me 2 is released almost exactly 3 years after the first film, being put back 3 weeks to July 4th. Since I saw the first trailer for this, I’ve since seen the first movie and it was terrible – instead of getting to see proper magic tricks, they just used crappy CGI. And this second film just appears to repeat everything we saw before, except adding Harry Potter into the mix. What’s the point??
