Now You See Me ... adding Jesse Eisenberg?
I left Toronto for Vegas on Friday for The Hangover 3 junket. Those interviews will air on ETALK over the next couple of weeks. My flight back to Vancouver wasn’t until Sunday but many of the reporters left on Saturday to head straight to New Orleans for the Now You See Me junket. Several of them had already screened it prior to the trip because of the Hangover overlap and almost all of them told me it’s really, really good. I really, really want to believe it. Because I love illusion movies, even though so many of them aren’t very well done. Also, over the last year or so, I’ve had a thing growing for Jesse Eisenberg. And God he’s sexy in this film. At least it seems so from the previews. Oh...and Mark Ruffalo. And the two of them together, when Jesse transfers the handcuffs? Jesus, his lips. There’s something about the way he talks, his lips...
The first 4 minutes of Now You See Me was released online last week. I’ve attached it below, followed by the trailer with the aforementioned interrogation scene. I watched this trailer on a big screen recently and it did exactly what a trailer should do -- make you want more. A few journalists told me the CGI works very well. There was also special mention of how great Woody Harrelson is in the film. Now You See Me is out on May 31. I think I might have a Jesse Eisenberg problem by June 1. I think I might have to toss Tom Hardy from the Five List.
Here he is riding his bike in New York a couple of weeks ago. It’s the almost only time he’s ever papped -- on his bike.
