Two years ago the magician thriller Now You See Me emerged to be a huge success story. Here was an action movie with an original concept, not based on some comic book or toy line, that captured audience imagination with an undeniably cool premise that combined magic, fast-paced and inventive heists, and a cast of fan favorites. But does that mean the sequel Now You See Me 2 will perform just as well?
The first trailer for the follow-up shows it hasn't missed a beat, but are there any new tricks up its sleeve? Isla Fisher is out and replaced by Lizzy Caplan, but Woody Harrelson, Dave Franco, and Jesse Eisenberg are back as the rest of the original Four Horsemen. Mark Ruffalo, Michael Caine, and Morgan Freeman also return with Daniel Radcliffe as Caine's son, who apparently lacks the showmanship of his peers.
Jon M. Chu is behind the camera for this one and he really hopes you'll forget about that whole Jem and the Holograms thing. Now You See Me 2 opens June 10th 2016.
