Now You See Me
It’s magicians meets Robin Hood. Now You See Me centers on the Four Horsemen (Jesse Eisenberg, Isla Fisher, Woody Harrelson and Dave Franco) who steal an unspeakable amount of cash from Michael Caine’s bank using their famous magic act in front of a live audience. Mark Ruffalo and Mélanie Laurent are the agents assigned to figure out how they did this. Morgan Freeman also stars. Now You See Me Opens in theaters on May 31.
The Hangover Part III
Unlike the last two Hangover films, this one doesn’t seem to need a night of heavy drug use or consuming large amounts of alcohol. Instead there is a kidnapping. Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms and Zach Galifianakis return to reprise their roles, as does Justin Bartha and Ken Jeong. John Goodman also stars. The Hangover Part III opens in theaters on May 24.
Ron Howard’s latest directorial effort centers on the lives of two real life race car drivers whose rivalry was not only inspiring to the world, but to each other as well. Chris Hemsworth plays James Hunt and Daniel Brühl plays Niki Lauda. The two constantly battled to cross the finish line first, but when Lauda nearly dies in a crash, he finds the will to live while watching Hunt win race after race with no real competition. Olivia Wilde also stars. Rush opens in theaters on September 20th.
Romeo and Juliet
Hailee Steinfeld follows up her Oscar-worthy performance in True Grit with the latest adaptation of Romeo and Juliet. Directed by Carlo Carlei, Steinfeld plays Juliet while Douglas Booth takes the Romeo role. The film has yet to find a US distributor, but will be released in the UK on July 26.
