With its US box office tally already totalling more than $100m., it’s safe to say that Now You See Me has become one of the biggest films of the year, performing brilliantly across the Atlantic.
I’ve been wanting to see the film ever since it was first announced, and am so glad that it has finally touched down on our shores this week. To celebrate its UK release, Yahoo Movies have released a great new red-band clip, in which Mark Ruffalo’s FBI agent vents his frustration at being forced to work with Mélanie Laurent’s character from Interpol.
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.
Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Isla Fisher, and Dave Franco star as The Four Horseman, with Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine completing the cast nicely alongside Ruffalo and Laurent.
Louis Leterrier (The Transporter) is behind the camera, directing from a script penned by Boaz Yakin (Prince of Persia), newcomer Edward Ricourt, Josh Appelbaum and André Nemec (co-writers on Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol), and Ed Solomon (Men in Black).
Now You See Me is now playing in both the US and, as of yesterday, the UK. Here’s the latest clip, in case you need any more persuading that this is an absolute must-see.
