‘Now You See Me’ Trailer Features Jesse Eisenberg Crafting a Magical Heist


Both pickpockets and magicians work well with sleight of hand, so the premise of this summer’s ‘Now You See Me‘ makes sense. Four famous magicians are also bank robbers, and they make the robberies a part of their act.Jesse Eisenberg, Mark Ruffalo, Isla Fisher and Woody Harrelson star in the film, and here’s the latest trailer.

And if this trailer has a pretty good hook, the overabundance of CGI makes it slightly troubling. If the idea is that we’re supposed to be following awesome magicians, If all their tricks are done later by a computer it takes away what makes real magic interesting. And that is that it’s really happening in front of you. Breaking the rules of that means that the film features “real” magic (which could be the twist) or just bad screenwriting. Still, with a cast like this (which also includes Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman and ‘Inglourious Basterds’ Melanie Laurent), we’re definitely interested.

Here’s the film’s synopsis:

Now You See Me pits an elite FBI squad in a game of cat and mouse against “The Four Horsemen,” a super-team of the world’s greatest illusionists. “The Four Horsemen” pull off a series of daring heists against corrupt business leaders during their performances, showering the stolen profits on their audiences while staying one step ahead of the law.

And here’s that trailer. ‘Now You See Me’ hits screens May 31.
