Woody Harrelson, Isla Fisher and Dave Franco join the "Social Network" star as a team of illusionists who entertain audiences while simultaneously robbing financial institutions halfway across the globe. To top off their tantalizing tricks, they donate their plunder to the very people they're entertaining and then manage to evade police.
Not bad for a day's work, right?
Unfortunately, the latest heist attracts the attention of an FBI task force led by Mark Ruffalo, who wants nothing more than to discover the magicians' methods before they pull off a more daring heist. The odds are against him though as Morgan Freeman, playing a famed magic debunker aiding the investigation, explains that "the closer you think you are, the less you'll actually see."
And according to Freeman's narration, what we're going to see in the third act "is really going to amaze."
Michael Caine co-stars along with Melanie Laurent and Common in Louis Leterrier's latest film, which hits theaters on June 7, 2013. Watch the enticing trailer below.
