Now You See Me Trailer Appears
Magicians form heist society

Though the heist film is a tried-and-true part of the crime genre, it’s not often you see a really nifty twist on the idea. But Now You See Me appears to offer exactly that, with a team called the Four Horsemen pulling off an audacious and seemingly impossible robbery during their Vegas act. The trailer is online and must be seen to be believed (OK, just seen) above.

Jesse Eisenberg stars as Atlas, the leader of the Horsemen; a team that also includes Woody Harrelson, Isla Fisher and Dave Franco. When he and his partners contrive to send a rich man to his bank in France from their Vegas stage – and then distribute his money to their audience of fraud victims – the FBI gets involved.

Agent Dylan Hobbs (Mark Ruffalo) is trying to uncover the truth behind the crime, and he enlists the help of Alma (Melanie Laurent) a seemingly suspicious Interpol agent, and Thaddeus (Morgan Freeman) a famed magic debunker in his investigation. But who can he trust? And what’s real?

Directed by Louis Leterrier, the film promises some visual dazzle and, given the cast, our fingers are crossed for good performances. It’ll open here on June 21. OR WILL IT? (Throws, smoke bomb, runs away, trips). Er, yes, it will.

I don't know about 'generic' but this trailer should be doing a better job of making sure you can't use 'rip off' to describe this film, I couldn't stop thinking about The Prestige throughout this trailer. The finished product may well be a different beast, but having the trailer focus on being misdirected by morally ambiguous super-magicians and having an old guy tell us we're being misdirected at the beginning and end of it (plus, having Michael Caine in the bloody thing!) is a bit too simi More

I am such a huge fan of magic but there are just no good films about magic... The Prestige was great, but SciFi-y, The Illusionist, the lesser said about that the better, and this seems to be SciFi as well. More

How does it look generic? i can't think of another film that's got this kind of conceit at it's core. I really like the idea, the cast is great and as a fan of illusionists and magicians, I'm looking forward to seeing this. BUT i do hope this isn't going to turn out to be a film with a "magic is real" or some such mcguffin that ends up being a cheat "twist ending". I REALLY hope the "twist" is an actual illusion, and not just a cheap get out trick. More

Well, great cast, but it looks generic... More
