“Now You See Me” Trailer Released [Video]

Posted on: December 14th, 2012 at 11:21 am by

Now You See Me was the provebial thorn in the side of the neighborhood for much of last spring. On an almost weekly basis, production crews decended upon the Lower East Side for filming. We saw Isla Fisher outside 88 Orchard, Jesse Eisenberg outside Streit’s Matzo, and a SWAT team led by Mark Ruffalo entering 92 Orchard. The film shoots clogged the streets and always drew a crowd.

Nearly nine months later, the first trailer for Now You See Me is finally live. It hit YouTube last month and iTunes earlier this week. The aforementioned scenes are not included here, but we nevertheless see shots of the FDR and 59th Street Bridge.

Now You See Me “pits a crack FBI squad in a game of cat and mouse against a super-team of the world’s greatest illusionists, who pull off a series of daring bank heists during their performances.” The film arrives June 7, 2013.
