As it’s currently undergoing shooting, we probably won’t get a teaser for Louis Leterrier‘s magician heist film Now You See Me until this summer. But now our first piece of official set footage and come in thanks to an Entertainment Tonight piece. Jesse Eisenberg, Mark Ruffalo, Isla Fisher, Melanie Laurent, Morgan Freeman, Woody Harrelson, Common, Michael Caine and Dave Franco make up the cast for the film which follows a group of high-class robbers that do what they do best all around the world, all while using illusions to pull it off.
In the few minutes below, Eisenberg gets the most play as we learn more about his character and a few of the stage stunts that are doing down. Fisher then chimes, along with Caine who talks about his Madoff-esque character who also has some comedic tendencies. Then Franco, who is coming off his hit comedy 21 Jump Street, talks about some of the card-throwing techniques he’s learned. It is a fluff piece, as all from the network are, but it’s nice to hear the twisty nature of this story and how each scene has some sort of surprise. We’ll see if that all comes together, but for now check out the video below.
Scored by The Chemical Brothers, Now You See Me arrives on January 18th, 2013.
