We saw our first photo evidence of shooting on Now You See Me earlier in the week.  ET has followed it up with a piece full of nice footage from the set.  The clip gives us a good look at the production, and introduces us to a few of the characters by talking to stars Jesse Eisenberg, Isla Fisher, Michael Caine, and Dave Franco.  Fisher offers the best sound bite:

“We are modern day Robin Hoods.  We’re getting back at corporate greed, and we’re distributing the wealth.  We’re essentially anarchists—good guys, good magicians, righting the wrongs of the world.”

Although, she also says she likes to think they’re shooting “the sequel to The Bridesmaids because all the boys are so in touch with their feminine side.”  So maybe she’s not the best source on what the film is about.  No worries.  We added the full synopsis after the jump along with the set video and a few screencaps.  Mark Ruffalo, Melanie Laurent, and Morgan Freeman also star in Now You See Me, directed by Louis Leterrier (Clash of the Titans) for release on January 18, 2013.

Via ET:

Here’s the synopsis, followed by those screencaps:

The Four Horsemen, a magic super-group led by the charismatic ATLAS (Jesse Eisenberg), perform a pair of high-tech magic shows, first astonishing audiences by robbing a bank on another continent, and then exposing a white-collar criminal and funneling his millions into the audience members’ bank accounts.

FBI Special Agent DYLAN (Mark Ruffalo) is determined to make the magicians pay for their crimes—and to stop them before they pull off what promises to be an even more audacious heist. But he’s forced to partner with ALMA (Melanie Laurent), an Interpol detective about whom he is instantly suspicious. Out of desperation he turns to THADDEUS (Morgan Freeman), a famed magic debunker, who claims the bank heist was accomplished using disguises and video trickery. One thing Dylan and Alma agree on is that the Horsemen must have an outside point person, and that finding him (or her) is key to ending the magicians’ crime spree. Could it be Thaddeus? Or Alma? Or could it really be…magic?

As pressure mounts and the world awaits the Horsemen’s spectacular final trick, Dylan and Alma race to find an answer. But it soon becomes painfully clear that staying one step ahead of these masters of illusion is beyond the skills of any one man—or woman.
