Now You See Me 2

"Are you listening, horsemen? You will get what's coming to you. In ways you can't expect."

The Film Board Gathers! This month, The Four Horsemen return to continue the magical crusade to right societal wrongs through misdirection and sleight of hand with Jon M. Chu’s Now You See Me 2. The Thugs tackle their own appetite for manipulation — Does this story deserve a sequel? Why would The Film Board approach it after widely panning the original? What happened to Isla Fischer and is she being played by Daniel Radcliffe?

We spoil the tricks, but spread the magic with Andy Nelson, Steve Sarmento, Pete Wright, and guest host Alice Baker as we consider the smoke and mirrors that make Now You See Me 2 a spectacle in theaters now.
