Now You See Me (Louis Leterrier,2013)
Out June 7th
“The Four Horsemen, a magic super-group led by the charismatic ATLAS (Jesse Eisenberg), perform a pair of high-tech magic shows, first astonishing audiences by robbing a bank on another continent, and then exposing a white-collar criminal and funneling his millions into the audience members’ bank accounts.
FBI Special Agent DYLAN (Mark Ruffalo) is determined to make the magicians pay for their crimes—and to stop them before they pull off what promises to be an even more audacious heist. But he’s forced to partner with ALMA (Melanie Laurent), an Interpol detective about whom he is instantly suspicious. Out of desperation he turns to THADDEUS (Morgan Freeman), a famed magic debunker, who claims the bank heist was accomplished using disguises and video trickery. One thing Dylan and Alma agree on is that the Horsemen must have an outside point person, and that finding him (or her) is key to ending the magicians’ crime spree. Could it be Thaddeus? Or Alma? Or could it really be…magic?
As pressure mounts and the world awaits the Horsemen’s spectacular final trick, Dylan and Alma race to find an answer. But it soon becomes painfully clear that staying one step ahead of these masters of illusion is beyond the skills of any one man—or woman.”

With Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Morgan Freeman, Mark Ruffalo, Mélanie Laurent, Isla Fisher, Dave Franco, and Michael Caine.

I was literally about to say the same exact thing. It's one of my underrated must-sees for the summer. I love everything about this cast.

I enjoyed it a lot

Absolute trash, not that it's surprising. The unending downward spiral of the last act ruined what could have been dumb fun. The tributes to "old" Hollywood throughout the film also verge on the point of parody.

phaynes1 06/01/13 10:12 PM

really a bummer to hear consider the great players but absolutely not surprising at all considering leterrier's track record

spaghettti 06/02/13 12:31 AM

So it wasn't any good?
