Jesse Eisenberg, Dave Franco, Woody Harrelson and Morgan Freeman are among the returning cast of Jon Chu’s sequel to the crime thriller about magicians who stage seemingly impossible heists. In the previous movie, the Four Horsemen – Danny Atlas (Eisenberg), Merritt McKinney (Harrelson), Henley Reeves (Isla Fisher) and Jack Wilder (Franco) – emerged from nowhere, used perfectly crafted illusions to rob a bank in Paris, fleeced an insurance magnate of hundreds of millions of dollars, showered their fans in cash… and then vanished again. But before disappearing they framed Thaddeus Bradley (Freeman) – a former magician who publicly reveals how tricks are done – for their crimes. Now, the jailed Bradley wants revenge, and he may get his opportunity when the Horsemen – minus Reeves, who has been replaced by Lula May (Lizzy Caplan) – eventually surface in the employ of a tech genius (Daniel Radcliffe) who needs to recover a stolen gadget that can decrypt and access all electronic devices. Also starring Mark Ruffalo and Michael Caine.
