“Now You See Me 2” finally releases more promotion in the form of character posters, giving fans a look into old and new characters.
The first movie earned high success in the box office making more $350 million worldwide, and the sequel hopes to surpass the same odds. Though not critically acclaimed the movie gained a lot of public attention, and the fans are ready for a second movie to answer the questions they were left with.
Most of the cast remains the same, but there are some major additions, especially with the Four Horsemen. Most of the key thieves known as the “Horsemen” are the same as the first movie with, Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, and Dave Franco will be joined by Lizzy Caplan, who is replacing Isla Fisher, as the last Horseman. The story of the sequel follows the group as they attempt to clear their names from the trouble they get in with tech prodigy Walter Mabry. The tech prodigy will be played by none other than actor Daniel Radcliffe, who forces the group into pulling a crazy heist that leaves the team scheming to clear their name. The total cast also sees the likes of Morgan Freeman, Mark Ruffalo, Michael Caine, and Jay Chou.
Lionsgate, after releasing a teaser trailer a while back, has now released nine promotional posters that show the characters in order to entice audiences for this summer.[slideshow post_id=””]
Jon M. Chu will direct the sequel, and Ed Solomon and Pete Chiarelli write the screenplay. The sequel will be coming to theaters on June 10th, and already has a third movie in the works. Hopefully the Horsemen can once again steal the attention of the general public and bring another box office hit.
