I don’t know about you, but I thoroughly enjoyed the first Now You See Me – a film about a group of magicians who carry out the perfect con and avoid the clutches of the FBI to win their way into the inner circle of master conjurers – which starred some fantastic talent in the form of Jesse Eisenberg, Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman, Dave Franco, Woody Harrelson, Isla Fisher and Mark Ruffalo.
Now, it’s time for a sequel to (magically) appear, with the majority of the cast back in action, now accompanied by at least one notable addition in the form of our very own Harry Potter, Daniel Radcliffe and Lizzy Caplan replacing Isla Fisher as the female lead.
Although we haven’t seen much in the way of promotion for the film so far – the first trailer dropped with little fanfare – despite it arriving this July (the 8th, to be exact), the first set of posters have been unleashed, and I’ve collated them all in our gallery below.
The rest of the Screening team and I are really, really looking forward to this one, and we’ll be first in line come July to see the sequel. Given the film’s impressive cast, it’s a shame the first didn’t get as much credit or plaudits as I think it deserved, but hopefully the addition of Daniel Radcliffe, as well as the increased fame which Jesse Eisenberg has accrued in the few years since the original, will boost the film’s visibility amongst cinemagoers. Here’s hoping the sequel is just as good – if not better – than the original!
