Summit Entertainment, a Lionsgate company, has announced that the magical thriller NOW YOU SEE ME (click the link to read the review), from director Louis Leterrier and starring Jesse Eisenberg, Mark Ruffalo, Woody Harrelson, Isla Fisher, Dave Franco, Melanie Laurent, Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine, will be available in a Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Copy/UltraViolet combo pack on September 3, 2013.
Here’s the synopsis for NOW YOU SEE ME: The Four Horsemen, a magic super-group led by the charismatic J. Daniel Atlas (Eisenberg), perform a pair of high-tech, high-profile magic shows. First amazing audiences by remotely robbing a Paris bank while in Las Vegas, and then exposing a white-collar criminal and funneling his millions into the audience members’ bank accounts, baffling the authorities. FBI Special Agent Dylan Rhodes (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 (Laurent), an Interpol detective about whom he is instantly suspicious. Out of desperation, he turns to a famed magic debunker, who claims the Paris bank trick was actually a meticulously planned illusion. Dylan and Alma begin to wonder if the Horsemen have an outside point person. If so, finding him (or her) would be the key to ending the magicians’ crime spree. But who could it be? Or…could it really be…magic?
Though NOW YOU SEE ME started out slow at the box office, it ended up grossing over $115 million and now has a sequel in the works. So if you missed this film at the theaters then you better pick it up in September, because you don’t want to be behind on the sequel. Check out the trailer for NOW YOU SEE ME below.
