When Now You See Me was first released back in 2013, it did not seem like the type of film that would be getting a sequel just three years later. But then it shocked everyone and made $351 million worldwide, and we all know money is everything in Hollywood.
This franchise clearly has more money to make, which is why we’re getting a sequel. And if we’re being honest, it actually looks like it’s going to be a decent film. The Four Horsemen have returned for a second mind-blowing adventure, but there are a few changes in this sequel. Isla Fisher has been replaced by Lizzy Caplan, and Daniel Radcliffe will co-star as Walter, the tech genius who blackmails the Four Horsemen to steal an item that is “the key to every computer system on the planet.”
And it looks like Lionsgate truly believes in this sequel because they have already started developing a Now You See Me 3.
As mentioned above, the stars of the original film are returning. You got Jesse Eisenberg, Dave Franco, Woody Harrelson, Morgan Freeman and Mark Ruffalo. It’s hard to make a bad film when you have a cast like that.
Check out the official synopsis and trailer below. The film hits theaters June 10, 2016.
“One year after outwitting the FBI and winning the public’s adulation with their mind-bending spectacles, the Four Horsemen resurface in Now You See Me 2 only to find themselves face to face with a new enemy who enlists them to pull off their most dangerous heist yet.”
