Mark Ruffalo’s Dylan Rhodes had some pretty startling reveals in the first Now You See Me, which makes it logical that Ruffalo (via his Instagram account) should reveal the sequel’s subtitle Now You See Me: The Second Act. This falls into what fellow returning star Michael Caine said in another magic-themed movie, The Prestige, about magicians having three distinct acts to every trick: The Pledge, The Turn and The Prestige. Check out the pic below!
The Turn is described in The Prestige as a point when, “the magician takes the ordinary something and makes it do something extraordinary. Now you’re looking for the secret… but you won’t find it, because of course you’re not really looking. You don’t really want to know. You want to be fooled. But you wouldn’t clap yet.”
One year after outwitting the FBI and winning the public’s adulation with their mind-bending spectacles, the Four Horsemen resurface in Now You See Me: The Second Act only to find themselves face to face with a new enemy who enlists them to pull off their most dangerous heist yet.
Jon M. Chu is directing Now You See Me: The Second Act, which features returning stars Jesse Eisenberg, Mark Ruffalo, Woody Harrelson, Isla Fisher, Dave Franco, Michael Caine and Morgan Freeman along with franchise newcomers Daniel Radcliffe, Lizzy Caplan and Jay Chou. It’s set for a June 10, 2016 release.
