Now You See Me 2: Daniel Radcliffe exclusive character poster

Posted on

For a movie about idealistic magicians robbing from the rich to give to the poor, Now You See Me took home a surprising amount of bank at the box office. The star-studded action caper grossed more than $350 million around the world, and the sequel is aiming to prove that thrilled audiences are eager to fall for the same trick twice. 

Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, and Dave Franco are back, with Lizzy Caplan rounding out the Four Horsemen (replacing Isla Fisher). This time, they’re challenged to perform some impossible feats in order to clear their names after they get tangled with a shady tech prodigy named Walter Mabry, (who may have some connection to a character from the first film), portrayed by movies’ and literature’s most famous wizard.

But not everyone is who they appear to be in these movies, so expect some twists and slight of hand before the grand reveal. Mark Ruffalo, Morgan Freeman, and Michael Caine return, and Jon M. Chu (G.I. Joe: Retaliation) directs the sequel, due June 10.
