Lionsgate’s Summit Entertainment has released the first teaser trailer for Now You See Me 2, which concludes with a gloriously meta appearance by Daniel Radcliffe, as a not-particularly-adept stage magician.

Original stars Mark Ruffalo, Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Dave Franco, Michael Caine and Morgan Freeman return for the sequel, which swaps in Lizzy Caplan for Isla Fisher among the Four Horsemen.

Jon M. Chu stepped in to direct the sequel, which was written by Ed Solomon and Pete Chiarelli. Louis Leterrier directed the first film, which grossed more than $350 million worldwide in 2013.


Here is the official synopsis from Summit:

THE FOUR HORSEMEN [Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Dave Franco, Lizzy Caplan] return for a second mind-bending adventure, elevating the limits of stage illusion to new heights and taking them around the globe. One year after outwitting the FBI and winning the public’s adulation with their Robin Hood-style magic spectacles, the illusionists resurface for a comeback performance in hopes of exposing the unethical practices of a tech magnate. The man behind their vanishing act is none other than WALTER MABRY [Daniel Radcliffe], a tech prodigy who threatens the Horsemen into pulling off their most impossible heist yet. Their only hope is to perform one last unprecedented stunt to clear their names and reveal the mastermind behind it all.

Now You See Me 2 hits theatres June 10 2016. The studio is already planning a third entry in the franchise.
