TOP 5: MAN OF STEEL, THE HANGOVER PART III Set Visit, THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE Trailer, NOW YOU SEE ME Set Visit, CinemaCon Coverage

Last weekend I finally had the chance to check out director Rodney Ascher‘s The Shining analysis doc Room 237 on Xbox Live. The film garnered a rave review from Matt when he screened it at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival and for the most part I share his enthusiasm for the pic.  On one hand, it’s unlike anything I’ve ever seen and I admire it for that exact reason. The extensive scenic analysis Room 237 employs, the hypnotic score, and its refusal to show the faces of those presenting their theories makes it an absolutely captivating ride that never lets you come up for air. On the other hand, I now have to live the rest of my life looking for Stanley Kubrick‘s airbrushed face in the clouds during The Shining‘s opening scene. And when/if I ever find it, what am I supposed to do with that information? Sigh.

I could go on about the film’s individual parts, but suffice to say that I consider it required viewing for anyone with even a fleeting interest in film analysis, Kubrick, and/or The Shining. And with that I’ll move on to the reason we’re all here. In this week’s Top 5 you’ll have the pleasure of checking out a stellar new trailer and a slew of other assets from Man of Steel, our set visit recap for The Hangover Part III, the first trailer for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, more set visit goodness for Now You See Me, and all of our CinemaCon 2013 coverage.

35 Things to Know About NOW YOU SEE ME From Our Set Visit; Plus Video Blog Recap

by     Posted 1 year, 6 days ago

About a year ago, I got to visit the set of director Louis Leterrier’s Now You See Me with a few other online reporters when the production was  filming a key 3rd act scene in New York City.  The film centers on a group of magicians who pull off bank heists during their death-defying acts, and the FBI squad tasked with catching them.  Leterrier put together a great ensemble cast that includes Jesse Eisenberg, Isla Fisher, Woody Harrelson, Dave Franco, Mark Ruffalo, Michael Caine, Melanie Laurent and Morgan Freeman.  If you haven’t seen the trailer, watch it here.

While on set, I got to participate in roundtable interviews with most of the cast, Leterrier, and the producers, and I walked away having learned a lot about the film.  I also got a good vibe from the filming and the footage they showed us, and really think Now You See Me is going to be a fun ride when it gets released May 31st.  Hit the jump for more.

While Jesse Eisenberg has played all sorts of people and characters like Mark Zukerberg, a zombie hunter, an orthodox Jew, a pizza delivery guy, and tons of troubled kids, in Now You See Me, Eisenberg takes on a new challenge: magician.  And based on what I’ve seen and learned about the film, he’s going to deliver another great performance.

While on set last year, I got to participate in a group interview with Eisenberg.  He talked about why he wanted to be in the project, reuniting with Woody Harrelson, what it’s been like learning the tricks, working with director Louis Leterrier, script changes, and a lot more.  Hit the jump for what he had to say.

In director Louis Leterrier‘s Now You See Me, Mark Ruffalo plays an FBI agent trying to hunt down and capture a group of magicians who pull off bank heists during their death-defying acts.  However, while Ruffalo plays a tough guy on screen, he’s anything but that in real life.  In fact, in the few times I’ve gotten to speak with him, he’s always making people laugh and trying to have fun.

About a year ago, I got to participate in a group interview with Ruffalo on the set of Now You See Me when the film was shooting in New York.  He talked about why he wanted to be involved, working with Leterrier, filming on location in New Orleans and NYC, magicians, what kinds of scripts is he drawn to, and a lot more.  Hit the jump for what he had to say.

Last year on the set of director Louis Leterrier‘s Now You See Me, Isla Fischer, who plays an escapologist, was asked why she wanted to do the movie.  She said:

“I read the script and I loved it.  It just had elements of an interesting movie, a good story, interesting people were attached and so many weird contrasting elements — romance, action, a heist… It just seemed like a mixture of a bunch of different movies, like a lovechild of Clash of the Titans meets Ocean’s Twelve.”

Fisher also talked about her character, her chemistry with the cast, performing the tricks, the tone of the film, how the script changed with once the cast was set, and more.  In addition, she since had just wrapped on The Great Gatsby, we also talked about that film and her other future projects.  Hit the jump for more.

Director Louis Leterrier Talks Shooting On Location, Practical Effects vs. CG, and More on the Set of NOW YOU SEE ME

Last year on the set of Now You See Me, director Louis Leterrier talked about his reasons for wanting to make the film:

“I was looking for a great script. I wanted a great script with a great story, some great twist, some great characters. I was looking for it, looking for it, looking for it, and then I found this amazing script. So I was like, “This is it, this is for me.” And what I love about this script is that it’s very respectful of the art of magic but also gives you a little bit of a peek behind the curtain, the Wizard of Oz curtain, a little bit. Not too much, but that’s what I want. So it really is a love letter to magic.”

In addition, he compared the tone to Sneakers and Oceans 11, why he wanted to use practical effects and not CG, the importance of having the actors do their own tricks, why they shot on location in New Orleans, New York and Las Vegas, which tricks were the most difficult, how the project changed along the way, and so much more.

Summit Entertainment has released a new trailer for Now You See Me.  The story centers on a group of magicians who pull off bank heists during their death-defying acts, and the FBI squad tasked with catching them.  It appears that Morgan Freeman is tasked with being the expository character as he spends most of this new trailer explaining things, but we do get a closer look at the technical side of the group’s magic tricks in this clip.  The premise is admittedly a bit outlandish, but director Louis Letterier (The Incredible Hulk) has put together a great cast and this trailer hammers home the promise that Now You See Me should be a lot of fun.

Just yesterday the first trailer for the magician-centered pic Now You See Me was released online, and now a large batch of images from the film have surfaced.  The movie follows an FBI squad on the heels of a team of bank-robbing magicians who share their profits with the audience.  Directed by Louis Letterier (Clash of the Titans), the film boasts an impressive ensemble cast that includes Jesse Eisenberg, Mark Ruffalo, Woody Harrelson, Melanie Laurent, Morgan Freeman, and Michael Caine.  The trailer played a bit like a “fun” version of The Prestige with a dash of Ocean’s Eleven thrown in for good measure, and I’m interested to see what the full has in store.

First Trailer for NOW YOU SEE ME Starring Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, and Mark Ruffalo

jesse-eisenberg-now-you-see-me-slice

The first trailer for Now You See Me has been released.  The film follows an FBI squad on the heels of a team of bank-robbing magicians who share their profits with the audience.  Sounds like Ocean’s Eleven with a magical twist, right? Well, the trailer shows that that’s certainly the case, but the “magic” tricks rely heavily on spectacle and computerized effects, throwing practicality right out the window. So it appears to be more of an action adventure flick with magical elements than any kind of head-scratcher; still could be fun though!

Hit the jump to watch the trailer.  Directed by Louis Letterier (Clash of the Titans), the film stars Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Mark Ruffalo, Isla Fisher, Melanie Laurent, Dave Franco, Morgan Freeman, and Michael CaineNow You See Me opens on June 7, 2013.
