"Now You See Me" (movie) is a feature film that is a visually spectacular blend of astonishing illusions and exhilarating action from director Louis Leterrier ("Clash of the Titans").

Four talented magicians mesmerize an international audience with a series of bold and original heists, all the while pursuing a hidden agenda that has the FBI and Interpol scrambling to anticipate their next move. The Four Horsemen, a magic super‐group led by the charismatic J.Daniel Atlas ("Jesse Eisenberg"), perform a pair of high-tech, high‐profile magic shows, first amazing audiences by remotely robbing a Paris bank while in Las Vegas, and then exposing a white‐collar criminal and funneling his millions into the audience members' bank accounts, baffling the authorities with their intricately planned capers.

FBI Special Agent Dylan Rhodes (Mark Ruffalo) is determined to make the magicians pay for their crimes — and to stop them before they pull off what promises to be an even more audacious heist. But he's forced to partner with Alma (Mélanie Laurent), an Interpol detective about whom he is instantly suspicious. Out of desperation, he turns to Thaddeus Bradley (Morgan Freeman), a famed magic debunker, who claims the Paris bank trick was actually a meticulously planned illusion. Dylan and Alma begin to wonder if the Horsemen have an outside point person. If so, finding him (or her) would be the key to ending the magicians' crime spree. But who could it be? Or could it really be … magic?

As pressure mounts and the world awaits the Horsemen's spectacular final trick, Dylan and Alma race to stay one step ahead of the magicians. But it soon becomes clear that outmaneuvering these masters of illusion is beyond the skills of any one man — or woman.

The cast includes Jesse Eisenberg ("The Social Network," "Zombieland"), Mark Ruffalo ("The Avengers," "Shutter Island"), Woody Harrelson ("The Hunger Games," "2012"), Mélanie Laurent ("Inglourious Basterds"), Isla Fisher ("Wedding Crashers"), Dave Franco ("21 Jump Street," ""Scrubs""), Common ("Terminator Salvation," ""Wanted""), José Garcia, with Michael Caine ("Inception," "The Dark Knight") and Morgan Freeman ("Olympus Has Fallen," "Million Dollar Baby").
