What an ingenious idea – take all the trickery and illusion of a Vegas magic show and apply them to robbing a bank! Why didn’t David Blaine think of this before??
In the new movie Now You See Me, a quartet of sleight-of-hand experts (i.e.: magicians) manage to rob a bank in Paris during their live stage show in Las Vegas. What the what?! Yes, that’s just what the authorities want to know too, so they apprehend the foursome, consisting of a zombie-free Jesse Eisenberg and Woody Harrelson, and their lovely assistants Isla Fisher and Dave Franco. But it seems this magic act has a little bit of The Prestige going on – in that this “trick” might not be a trick at all but, in fact, actual MAGIC!!! Holy Hogwarts!
While Mark Ruffalo tries to get to the bottom of these shenanigans, Michael Caine and Morgan Freeman take a break from saving Batman’s ass to enigmatically hint at some sort of secret trick that was “designed a long time ago”… OMG please tell me it’s Ancient Alien Magicians!
It’s all very intriguing and stuff, and I advise taking a peek at the trailer below:
Now You See Me opens on June 7.
