Summit Entertainment has released the first extended clip from director Louis Leterrier’s (The Incredible Hulk) magician-centered thriller Now You See Me. The clip shows the opening sequence from the film, as we’re introduced to Jesse Eisenberg’s David Blaine-esque card trick magician, Woody Harrelson’s mentalist character, Dave Franco’s pickpocket specialist, and Isla Fisher’s escape artist. The film’s story centers on an FBI squad who is on the heels of a team of bank-robbing magicians who share their profits with the audience. This opening sequence does a great job of teasing a hopefully fun and wholly entertaining thrill ride, and I’m eager to see more.
Hit the jump to watch the clip, and if you missed any of Steve’s set visit coverage check out his video blog recap and interviews with Mark Ruffalo, Eisenberg, Fisher, and Leterrier. Now You See Me opens on May 31st.
Here’s the official synopsis for Now You See Me:
NOW YOU SEE ME pits an elite FBI squad in a game of cat and mouse against “The Four Horsemen”, a super-team of the world’s greatest illusionists. “The Four Horsemen” pull off a series of daring heists against corrupt business leaders during their performances, showering the stolen profits on their audiences while staying one step ahead of the law.
