How people are still into magicians is beyond me; the whole “magic show” thing faded off my interest list as a kid right around the time I realized that the WWF (now WWE) was fake, and for the same reasons. Regardless, dudes still enjoy putting on those goofy, glittery, full-bodied leotards and getting on stage in front of at times, thousands of paying customers. It’s pretty amazing, really. Well, there’s a new magician/heist thriller en route to your local theater on May 31st entitled, Now You See Me, starring an impressive list of stars that should equate to a decent showing at the box office: Morgan Freeman, Jesse Eikenberg (who still looks like Mark Zuckerberg), Isla Fisher, and Michael Caine. Based on this brand new TV spot that was released hours ago today, the film looks more along the lines of an “Oceans 1x” movie, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, however while this magic meets bank robber flick may boast a solid cast, it has nothing on the Oceans films.
