Is this new motion poster for Now You See Me an illusion, or is it magic? We can’t say for sure. Some sort of Photoshop wizardry is at play around Woody Harrelson’s character, so much so that I’ve already inadvertently typed “Woody Allen” three times while writing this article. Be it actual magic or just sleep deprivation, the fact remains: Now You See Me is coming soon and we’ve got a fancy poster exclusive to share with you.
The poster is one of eight new character motion prints that will be debuting across the web this afternoon on sites such as Movies.com, Comingsoon.net, BuzzSugar.com, CinemaBlend.com, Hollywood.com, Nerdist.com and CraveOnline.com. Despite the elusive nature of the film’s title, I don’t imagine the other posters will be hard to find should you yearn for them.
Due in theaters May 31, Now You See Me teams former Hulk director Louis Leterrier with current Hulk alter-ego Mark Ruffalo in a tale of magical bank robbers. More to the point, Ruffalo plays an FBI agent chasing down a group of rogue illusionists — played by Isla Fisher, Jesse Eisenberg, Dave Franco and the aforementioned Harrelson — who are using their magic tricks as diversions to mask crimes. The only catch is that the David Copperfields-of-gold-digging aren’t keeping any of the money for themselves. It’s like Robin Hood, but with more glitter. The film also stars Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine and the lovely Mélanie Laurent.
Here’s a trailer:
