Brand New Now You See Me 2 Trailer Released

Published

on

Lionsgate have finally released a brand new trailer for Now You See Me 2, which is the follow up to 2013’s sleeper hit about four magicians known as the Four Horsemen who set swindling Billionaire Arthur Tressler (Michael Caine) and setting up magic debunker Thaddeus Bradley (Morgan Freeman) for their role in the death of a magician years before. Along the way pulling off even more elaborate stunts while managing to stay one step ahead of the FBI, much to the public’s delight. But now it looks like the tables may have turned on the foursome second time around.

With Tressler and Bradley out for revenge and technology wiz kid Walter Mabry (Daniel Radcliffe) blackmailing them into helping him steal the key to every computer system on the planet, the gang are forced to perform one final stunt and reveal the mastermind trying to bring them down. Can the Four Horseman find away to clear their names and show the world Mabry’s true colours or is this one escape act too far?

The film opens on the 10th June 2016. It stars Jessie Eisenberg, Mark Ruffalo, Woody Harrelson, Lizzie Caplan and Dave Franco.

Bond 25 Sets Cary Fukunaga As Director

Published

on

Beasts of No Nation director Cary Fukunaga has joined the production of the 25th entry in the James Bond franchise, replacing Trainspotting’s Danny Boyle in the director’s chair.

Boyle dropped out following “creative differences” with the studio and star Daniel Craig, allegedly over the casting of the film’s antagonist and the new script Boyle commissioned with his usual co-writer John Hodge. Reportedly, the Boyle/Hodge script was simply too different for MGM and Eon Productions, who have since rehired veteran 007 screenwriters Neal Purvis and Robert Wade to fix things.

Bond 25 is still currently lacking a proper title, and is looking increasingly unlikely to make its November 8th, 2019 release date. The flick hasn’t been officially pushed back as of yet, but in between the executive reshuffling that led to Fukunaga’s signing on, Craig has committed to Star Wars: The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson’s whodunit Knives Out which begins shooting in this November.
