NOW YOU SEE ME 2 MAIN TRAILER
Their first act was just the beginning…
Entertainment One UK Ltd is pleased to make available the main trailer for NOW YOU SEE ME 2 which will be released in UK cinemas on 4th July 2016. Directed by Jon M. Chu, NOW YOU SEE ME 2 features an all star cast including Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Dave Franco, Mark Ruffalo, Daniel Radcliffe, Lizzy Caplan, Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine.
A new trailer for Now You See Me 2 has landed online in the form of an international trailer for the magician-centric follow-up. G.I. Joe: Retaliation and Justin Bieber: Never Say Never director Jon M. Chu takes the helm this time around, taking over for the first movie’s Louis Letterrier, and this new trailer shows a much more fun-loving, much less serious sequel.
The follow-up finds the Four Horsemen—minus Ilsa Fisher’s underwritten character, substituted with a new (hopefully more substantial) addition played by Lizzy Caplan—trotting the globe with their Robin Hood-style spectacles a year after the events of the first movie, but they’re soon put in peril as the son of Michael Caine’s character, played by Daniel Radcliffe, forces them into pulling off their most treacherous heist yet.
This trailer is confusing from a plot standpoint—how is Morgan Freeman’s character pulling strings, and where do Radcliffe’s allegiances lie?—but in terms of entertainment, the film appears to deliver. My biggest problem with the first movie was the reliance on CG theatrics, as the whole point of magic is to pull off seemingly impossible tricks to the naked eye. That at least appears to be toned down a tad here, with Caplan and Co. assuming a bit more of a knowingly ridiculous attitude that suits the movie a bit better.
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.
Starring Jesse Eisenberg, Mark Ruffalo, Woody Harrelson, Lizzy Caplan, Dave Franco, Morgan Freeman, Jay Chou, Daniel Radcliffe and Michael Caine.
