Christopher Nolan's Batman series, which culminated in this year's The Dark Knight Rises, has a lot of accidental ties to magic-themed thrillers. Christian Bale was of course the star of Nolan's own The Prestige. Now, Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine, a.k.a Lucius and Alfred star in Now You See Me. Watch the first trailer below:
Jesse Eisenberg stars as Michael Atlas, the leader of the magician supergroup The Four Horsemen, who have just pulled off an amazing stunt, transporting from a show in Las Las Vegas to pull off a bank heist in Paris, and expose a white-collar criminal. Mark Ruffalo (The Avengers) plays an FBI agent bent on figuring out how they did it in order to prosecute them for their crimes.
Melanie Laurent, Dave Franco, Isla Fisher (Rise of the Guardians), Woody Harrelson, and Common also star.
Louis Leterrier directs the film, which was written by Ed Solomon, Boaz Yakin, and Edward Ricourt. Catch Now You See Me in theaters June 7, 2013.
