Magicians have rarely ever looked so cool
Blu-ray $39.99 / DVD $29.95 (Lionsgate Home Entertainment)
Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine, Dave Franco and Isla Fisher star in this mesmerizing hocus-pocus caper about a group of hip young magicians whose signature trick—cleaning out money from bank vaults and giving it away to their audiences—attracts the attention of a team of FBI agents (Mark Ruffalo and Mélanie Laurent). Like most magic acts, there’s more going on than meets the eye! But this movie’s neatest trick: making stage magicians look sexy, hip and cool. Bonus features include a look behind the scenes, commentary, and “A Brief History of Magic” documentary.
