Magicians have pulled off amazing tricks, like pulling a rabbit from a hat or convincing Claudia Schiffer that David Copperfield is attractive! Now we’re getting a look at how some tricks are pulled off in the movie “Now You See Me 2.”
Chris Van Vliet is here to wave his magic wand and show us behind the scenes.
Just like the first one, “Now You See Me 2” is full of magic and mystery — and Deco was invited to take it all in on the film’s London set. The cast took time out from filming to show us the new tricks they have up their sleeves.
Abracadabra — the big screen is about to be spellbinding.
The magicians, better known as the Four Horsemen, will amaze you in “Now You See Me 2.” The story takes place one year after the first flick, and it’s even more magical.
Jesse Eisenberg: “With this movie, there is a more exciting aspect that the first movie didn’t allow for, which is see how the magicians and illusionist perform these tricks.”
Jesse Eisenberg is back, and this time you get to know more about his character, Danny.
Jesse Eisenberg: “In the first movie, my character is sort of this guy who you see perform and in this movie you are behind-the-scenes.”
Actually, fans gets to know all of the Horsemen – and their magic.
Jesse Eisenberg: “The characters are a little more personal, personable to the audience.”
Jesse Eisenberg: “This stuff seems impossible, but if you see us, it not only seems possible but doable.”
In the sequel, Isla Fisher is out, and Lizzy Caplan is in.
Lizzy Caplan: “My character’s name is Lula. She is the newest horseman — horselady — and she comes from a background of gross out geek magic.”
For the cast — Lizzy’s addition was seamless…
For her, the ratio of guys to girl wasn’t bad.
Lizzy Caplan: “I don’t mind a boys club, it’s fun. Everyone acts like a 9-year-old-boy anyway and it brings it out.”
“Now You See Me 2” isn’t just movie magic, it’s the real deal.
Lizzy Caplan: “We came here a few weeks early, and we’ve been in Cardistry school and learned about it — a bit of a crash course. The first movie was very enjoyable, and I think the second movie will be better.”
Enough talking about magic … let’s do some magic! I’ve been honing and perfecting this trick for the last 11 years and I finally have a story where I can use it. You may even refer to this as a Chris Van Feat! At the count of three, I will disappear before your very eyes live on television! Here we go! 1… 2… 3!!
“Now You See Me 2” is in theaters Friday.
