Now You See Me Trailer: It’s a Kind of Magic

Now You See Me looks like a heist movie mixed with a magic movie mixed with a Michael Caine/Morgan Freeman movie swirled into a Jesse Eisenberg/Woody Harrelson movie. It's from Louis Leterrier, the director of unrepentant action fare like The Transporter and Clash of the Titans, so it appears to be a change of pace. Still, we can imagine the Modern Day Robin Hood/99 Percenters Strike Back themes getting dropped pretty quickly in favor of some scenes designed strictly for oohs and ahhs. Now it's time for us to accept bets on the likelihood of a character saying abracadabra and making a smug CSI face afterward.
