New Trailer and Posters for ‘Now You See Me 2’

Jon Chu's Magician Heist Sequel

Lionsgate has released the new trailer for the upcoming Now You See Me 2, the Jon Chu-directed magician heist sequel arriving in theaters on July 4th.

Original stars Mark Ruffalo, Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine all return for the sequel, joined by newcomers Daniel Radcliffe and Lizzy Caplan for a story that takes place a year after the Four Horsemen skunked the FBI and won the public’s hearts.

Watch the new preview in the form of an international trailer, showing a much more fun-loving side of the magician-centric follow-up.

I was surprised to see how many people liked watching CGI magic tricks. Check out this new batch of vintage style posters which pays tribute to classic magic one-sheets — a nice change from the typical collage of actors.

THE FOUR HORSEMEN [Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Dave Franco, Lizzy Caplan] return for a second mind-bending adventure, elevating the limits of stage illusion to new heights and taking them around the globe. One year after outwitting the FBI and winning the public’s adulation with their Robin Hood-style magic spectacles, the illusionists resurface for a comeback performance in hopes of exposing the unethical practices of a tech magnate. The man behind their vanishing act is none other than WALTER MABRY [Daniel Radcliffe], a tech prodigy who threatens the Horsemen into pulling off their most impossible heist yet. Their only hope is to perform one last unprecedented stunt to clear their names and reveal the mastermind behind it all. Summit Entertainment presents a K/O Paper Products production a Jon M.
