WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

A year after outrunning the FBI and winning public adoration for their Robin Hood-style antics, magician group The Four Horsemen – Danny (Eisenberg), Merritt (Harrelson), Jack (Franco) and newcomer Lula (Caplan) – and their manager Dylan Rhodes (Ruffalo) return for a comeback performance that threatens to expose the crimes of a business magnate. Soon, however, they find themselves in the presence of tech prodigy Walter Marby (Radcliffe) who forces them to use their skills to try and pull off an impossible heist…

IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?

The surprisingly entertaining, if silly, magic caper Now You See Me at last gets a follow-up, bringing back most of the main cast (sans Isla Fisher) as well as new additions like Daniel Radcliffe to conjure up a bigger, and hopefully better, illusion than before.
