Contest: Chicago, now you too can see Now You See Me 2 early and for free

We’re still not entirely sure if Now You See Me‘s big twist ending actually made sense in the context of the movie that came before it. Either way, it’ll be interesting to see if its follow-up (disappointingly just subtitled The Second Act) attempts to pull a fast one on its audience again, or if it’ll double-down on what worked in the original, namely the “no-illusions chemistry between its leads.” Since this is coming from director Jon M. Chu—whose last trick involved making Jem And The Holograms disappear from theaters after just two weeks—the sequel will likely aim to go big on the spectacle. Nevertheless, most of its predecessor’s game cast returns (notable exceptions: Mélanie Laurent, Isla Fisher), with Lizzy Caplan and Daniel Radcliffe joining the fun and notably upping the blockbuster hopeful’s smartassery quotient.
