Now You See Me was one of the most absurd heist movies I’ve seen in quite some time. So dumb was its premise that I’m seriously amazed that a sequel was made, though perhaps not as amazed as Isla Fisher was, because she decided to jump ship and let Lizzy Caplan take over for her. I honestly don’t have any insightful commentary on this one – I’ve just been staring at this trailer thinking of how ridiculous it is, and no thoughts have entered my brain except “Do you think Daniel Radcliffe is sick of playing magicians yet?” Sigh. I just hope they make this into a trilogy and the third one is called Now You Three Me.
Now You See Me 2 comes out June 10, 2016.
