  • The lines between magic, illusion and crime blur in the “exceedingly clever” (Entertainment Weekly) Now You See Me arriving on Blu-ray Combo Pack (plus DVD, Digital Copy and Digital UltraViolet), DVD (plus Digital UltraViolet), Video on Demand and Pay-Per-View September 3 from Summit Entertainment, a LIONSGATE company.

    The Blu-ray Combo Pack features an Extended Director’s Cut of the film featuring 16 minutes of never-before-seen footage. Prepare to be amazed as “The Four Horsemen,” a super-team of the world’s greatest illusionists, pull off a series of daring heists while evading a squad of FBI agents and an Interpol detective trying to stop them before their most daring final trick! Directed by Louis Leterrier (Clash of the Titans), Now You See Me is a visually spectacular blend of astonishing illusions and exhilarating action starring Academy Award® nominees Jesse Eisenberg (Actor in a Leading Role, The Social Network, 2010) and Woody Harrelson (Actor in a Supporting Role, The Messenger, 2009) alongside Isla Fisher (The Great Gatsby) and Dave Franco (Warm Bodies) as the magicians known as “The Four Horsemen.” The film also stars Academy Award® winners Morgan Freeman (Actor in a Supporting Role, Million Dollar Baby, 2004) and Michael Caine (Actor in a Supporting Role, The Cider House Rules, 1999), plus Mark Ruffalo (The Avengers) and Mélanie Laurent (Beginners) as the law-enforcement team hot on their tails. The screenplay is by Ed Solomon and Boaz Yakin & Edward Ricourt, with a story by Boaz Yakin & Edward Ricourt.

    The Four Horsemen, a magic super-group led by the charismatic J. Daniel Atlas (Eisenberg), perform a pair of high-tech, high-profile magic shows. First amazing audiences by remotely robbing a Paris bank while in Las Vegas, and then exposing a white-collar criminal and funneling his millions into the audience members’ bank accounts, baffling the authorities. FBI Special Agent Dylan Rhodes (Ruffalo) is determined to make the magicians pay for their crimes-and to stop them before they pull off what promises to be an even more audacious heist. But he’s forced to partner with Alma (Laurent), an Interpol detective about whom he is instantly suspicious. Out of desperation, he turns to a famed magic debunker, who claims the Paris bank trick was actually a meticulously planned illusion. Dylan and Alma begin to wonder if the Horsemen have an outside point person. If so, finding him (or her) would be the key to ending the magicians’ crime spree. But who could it be? Or…could it really be…magic?

    The Blu-ray Combo Pack, along with the extended director’s cut with sixteen minutes of never-before-seen footage, includes an audio commentary, two revealing featurettes and deleted scenes. The DVD bonus materials include an audio commentary and a “making of” featurette. The Now You See Me Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD will be available for the suggested retail price of $39.99 and $29.95, respectively.

  • The mini-studio confirmed a second movie is being planned after the international box office grosses for the summer sleeper hit surpassed its domestic take.

    Lionsgate is working on a sequel to the Summit Entertainment hit movie Now You See Me.

    As the magician heist film continues to outperform more pricey tentpoles at the international box office, Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer told analysts Friday that production on the sequel is penciled in for 2014.

    Feltheimer predicted Louis Leterrier’s caper-thriller will reach the $275 million mark in worldwide box office grosses.

    Now You See Me has so far pulled in $115.6 million since its Memorial Day weekend debut, and $119.3 million at the international box office to date.

    Internationally, the sleeper hit has yet to open in China, Australia and Japan.

    The mid-price comedy thriller sees Jesse Eisenberg, Isla Fisher, Dave Franco and Woody Harrelson play gifted magicians drawn into a bank robbery.

    Lionsgate is projecting that the international take for the Summit film will exceed $150 million.

    The mini-studio isn’t indicating yet whether a screenwriter has been attached to the Now You See Me sequel.

    Lionsgate also touted foreign pre-sales for Now You See Me, which could prove highly profitable given the original film cost $75 million to produce.

    “This is a perfect example of how we’re benefiting from the unique international infrastructure of output deals, joint ventures and self-distribution we’ve set in place to maximize value and minimize risk,” Feltheimer told analysts during a morning call on Friday after the release of Lionsgate’s latest financial results late Thursday.

    In Russia, for example, where Lionsgate licensed Now You See Me to West Company as part of an existing output deal, the Summit pic has brought in $20 million in box office so far.

    In Latin America, by contrast, Lionsgate distributed Now You See Me through its IDC joint venture, a partnership between Summit and NuVision founder Pedro Rodriguez.

    “The film will gross nearly $25 million at the box office and will generate a profit more than three times greater than had we sold it for a minimum guarantee,” Feltheimer said.

  • Pre-weekend tracking appears to have been off this weekend as Sony’s “After Earth” underperforms and Summit’s “Now You See Me” overperforms to meet in the middle at an anticipated sum just less than $30 million this weekend.

    After taking second in the domestic marketplace Friday, “Now You See Me” is expected to close the frame in second with about $27 million, spectacularly beating earlier projections that had the pic in the mid-to-high teens.

    Conversely, “After Earth,” which was projected to earn between $35 million and $40 million, is right on “Now You See Me’s” heels. Pics earned $9.8 million and about $10.1 million Friday, respectively.

    Universal’s “Fast and Furious 6? is easily retaining the top spot in its soph sesh, though not with the margin of victory expected a few days ago. A total near $50 million has been scaled back to $35 million — a 65% week-over-week drop — after Friday’s $10.5 million haul, barely ahead of the frame’s openers.

    In limited release, CBS Films bowed “The Kings of Summer” and Fox Searchlight bowed “The East” both on four screens this frame. They enjoyed per screen averages of $4,443 and $4,875 Friday, respectively.
