Hitting US theatres at the end of the month, Now You See Me more than earns itself a top spot on our most anticipated movies of the month list. This is one of a handful of films coming out this year that I’ve been looking forward to for what feels like forever.
With its release date very much on the horizon, Summit have debuted the first four minutes from the film, helping to whet your appetite that little bit more. And if you’re looking for a fuller look at the film as a whole, then you can head over to watch the brilliant latest trailer that debuted last month as well.
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 magician quartet, The Four Horsemen. And starring opposite them is Mark Ruffalo, Mélanie Laurent, Michael Caine, and Morgan Freeman.
Louis Leterrier (The Transporter) is directing from a script co-written 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 will be hitting cinemas in the US on May 31st, with its UK release date recently brought forward slightly to 3rd July. This is pretty much a sure thing to be one of my favourite movies of the year, and I can’t wait to see it in its entirety when it hits.
