Now You See Me 2 Coming 9/6 + Review

Now You See Me 2 is especially great after seeing Now you See Me

Have you seen Now You See Me (the first one?) If you are a fan of the first “Now You See Me” movie, you will really enjoy this follow-up. It is definitely a movie where you should have seen the first one in order to follow along properly and understand the characters.

Picking up where the first film left off, the Horsemen are in hiding but emerge with a new plan. Things are not as they seem, of course, and the plot takes off from there.

Now You See Me 2


The cast is bigger, but the acting is great. I was skeptical with the loss of Isla Fisher, but Lizzy Caplan brings her own character into the story, and she is a welcome addition. I didn’t feel like she was just a replacement for the female lead, but a very likable and important part of the team in her own right. Daniel Radcliff brings his own new character into play and performs the heck out of it.

The effects are spectacular, and the twists are impressive, as you would expect.

I highly recommend this movie, but only if you’ve seen the first.

SANTA MONICA, CA (July 19, 2016) – The Four Horsemen are back for a second act to pull off their most impossible heist yet as they try to clear their names in Now You See Me 2,  arriving on Digital HD August 19 and on 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack (plus Blu-ray and Digital HD), Blu-ray Combo Pack (plus DVD and Digital HD) and DVD (plus Digital) September 6 from Lionsgate’s Summit Entertainment label.

The Four Horsemen (Eisenberg, Harrelson, Franco, Caplan) return for a second mind-bending adventure, elevating the limits of stage illusion to new heights and taking them around the globe.

The man behind their vanishing act is none other than Walter Mabry (Radcliffe), a tech prodigy who threatens the Horsemen into pulling off their most impossible heist yet.

I received a copy of Now You See Me 2 in exchange for my honest review.  All opinions are my own.



Wife, mother, grandma, blogger, all wrapped into one person, although it does not define her these are roles that are important to her. Entering into their 'empty nest' stage in life, Becky, and her husband Roger are learning to live with their youngest away at school more than not. Becky enjoys way too many TV programs but her favorites are normally criminal based or something to make her laugh. Keep an eye out because 2017 is going to be her year!
