First look–Magic takes center stage in Now You See Me

Not a lot of movies that don’t tie strictly to a single definable genre have intriguing previews that we focus on here at, but one new trailer caught our radar this week for its interesting plot and supporting cast of major league actors.  Now You See Me stars Jesse Eisenberg (The Social Network, Adventureland), Mark Ruffalo (Zodiac, The Avengers), Woody Harrelson, and Isla Fisher (Wedding Crashers) alongside film legends Michael Caine and Morgan Freeman.  And the subject?  A Vegas style spectacular magic act that transports people on stage to Paris to rob a bank, then return to the stage in minutes and share all the cash with the audience–until the cops show up and want to know the secret behind the act.  Check out the first trailer for Now You See Me:

Hopefully this magic act movie will go the way of The Illusionist and The Prestige and focus on magic as opposed to otherworldly things as with what the trailer looks a little bit like–Inception.

Now You See Me is scheduled for release June 7, 2013.
