Looks like Daniel Radcliffe is going back to the magical world…but this time without a wand. Lionsgate released this week the first official teaser trailer for Now You See Me 2 the sequel to 2013’s film. The film, directed by Jon M. Chu, brings back some familiar faces such as Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Dave Franco, Mark Ruffalo, Michael Caine, and Morgan Freeman, but it also introduces Lizzy Caplan, Jay Chou and Mr. Radcliffe.
Even though I wasn’t a huge fan of the first film, I have to admit it was rather entertaining at times and the cast was really something. The trailer of Now You See Me 2 doesn’t reveal much of the plot, jut a few glimpses of some really (cool) magic tricks here and there. Following where we left the gang in 2013, this time The Four Horsemen “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 [Radcliffe], a tech prodigy who threatens the Horsemen into pulling off their most impossible heist yet”. The best part of the trailer is Radcliffe’s “ta-dah” at the end. Got me chuckling.
Now You See Me 2 is scheduled to hit theaters on June 10, 2016. Watch the teaser below and let us know what you think!
