Daniel Radcliffe Cameos In First 'Now You See Me 2' Trailer
The Four Horsemen are up to their old tricks again — and some new ones, as well — in the first trailer for Now You See Me 2, the follow-up to the surprise 2013 hit about magicians who also happen to be criminal masterminds.
Actually, only three of the original Four Horsemen — Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson and Dave Franco — will be back for the second movie, with the fourth member of the original group, Isla Fisher, being replaced by Lizzy Caplan for this go-around.
Also returning are Mark Ruffalo, Michael Caine and Morgan Freeman, while another well-known fictional magician makes a somewhat unimpressive debut in this trailer: Harry Potter himself, Daniel Radcliffe, shows up in an amusingly underwhelming fashion at the end of the trailer in a manner that would make even Ron Weasley shake his head in embarrassment.
Lionsgate has high hopes for the sequel, having already announced plans for a third installment. The new movie is directed by G.I. Joe: Retaliation and Jem and the Holograms' Jon Chu, from a screenplay by Ed Solomon and Pete Chiarelli. Now You See Me 2 will be released June 10, 2016.
