Revealing new trailer for 'Now You See Me' with Jesse Eisenberg and Morgan Freeman


Just like any good magician, the marketing folks behind the heist film Now You See Me have to be careful not to reveal what's truly up their sleeve. Directed by Louis Leterrier (Clash of the Titans) and a buzzworthy cast including Jesse Eisenberg, Morgan Freeman, Isla Fisher, Mark Ruffalo, Dave Franco, Michael Caine, and Woody Harrelson amongst others, the inventive premise has a group of illusionists known as the Four Horsemen using their shows to plan elaborate bank robberies.

A second trailer has been released, and while it begins in much the same way as the previous one, it does seem to spoil a good deal of the plot. Harrelson, Fisher, Franco, and Eisenberg play the Horsemen, whose daring robberies put them at odds with a crack team of FBI agents led by Ruffalo, Melanie Laurent, and Common. In the mix is Freeman who appears to be something of a wild card, and there's the suggestion that maybe the Horsemen's schemes are backed by something nobody truly understands.

Is it all just slight of hand, or have we been shown too much of what Now You See Me has to offer? It still looks like a slick, fun thriller with an incredible cast, and should play well when it opens on May 31st.
