"Now You See Me 2" has already been released in the American theatres to widespread appreciation, but the movie will reach India only on Friday, June 17. The sequel to the 2013 "Now You See Me" will see the return of horsemen Danny (Jesse Eisenberg), McKinney (Woody Harrelson) and Jack (Dave Franco), with the addition of Lula (Lizzy Caplan).
The movie glorifies magicians and illusionists and talks about some of the collect tricks performed by the best magicians in the world. However, playing a badass illusionist two times around does not make you great at it, confirms Franco.
"Magicians have extremely great work ethic and they have to spend so much time, sometime years, to perfect one little trick and I just... I have so much respect for that. I don't have the personality or just... whatever to really spend that much time to really spend that much time doing anything," says Franco.

He could have fooled us though, because the personality Franco projects on camera as Jack is spot-on. Jack is depicted as one of the best illusionists in the world, even if he may relatively be a novice. He even faked his own death in the first film.
"As far as the world knows, Jack is dead. So, we pick up in the second movie, we are all in hiding... And, it's a year later and we're about to do our comeback performance. But, because everyone thinks that I am dead, I'm not going to be on stage with everyone else. I'm gonna be used in a way, where I can just sneak around behind the scenes and.. manipulate people that way," Franco says regarding Jack's role in the upcoming film.
It will be interesting to see how everyone learns about Jack being alive and how each of their reactions is captured on screen.
