New Poster for 'Now You See Me' Integrates Entire Ensemble Cast
"The closer you look, the less you'll see." I guess the designer took that statement literally. Summit's new poster for Now You See Me, the Louis Leterrier-directed illusionist heist thriller with quite an ensemble cast, has been unveiled. Everyone from Jesse Eisenberg to Woody Harrelson to Mark Ruffalo to Isla Fisher to Dave Franco to Morgan Freeman to Michael Caine and yes, even Mélanie Laurent, have a spot on it. The only ones missing are Common, Elias Koteas and Michael Kelly. This is one of my most anticipated movies of the summer, and I like the unique design - I just wish they were pushing the concept a little bit further to go along with the tricky illusions seen in the film. But it's likely the first of many posters.
Now You See Me, directed by Louis Leterrier (Transporter 1 & 2, Unleashed, Incredible Hulk, Clash of the Titans) from a screenplay by Ed Solomon and Boaz Yakin & Edward Ricourt, pits an elite FBI squad in a game of cat and mouse against "The Four Horsemen," a super-team of the world's greatest illusionists. The group pulls off a series of daring heists on corrupt business leaders during their performances, showering the stolen profits on their audiences while staying one step ahead of the law. It was shot on location in New York, Las Vegas and New Orleans. Summit will release Now You See Me starting on May 31st this summer.

the irony of "The Incredible Hulk" director directing Ruffalo in this is awesome.

He originally wanted Ruffalo for the role, but I believe it was actually Marvel who voted him down. Ruffalo in that role over Norton would have resulted in a better leading performance, PLUS zero arguments in the editing room, no wasted time/money filming all of the extra dialogue scenes Norton wrote into the film(most of which were cut) and no bad press from the Norton vs Marvel 'war' over cutting said scenes. All of which likely would have resulted in a movie that was better reviewed and maybe successful enough to get a sequel. Blah...
