After getting the new “Now You See Me” trailer two days ago, a boatload of new images from Louis Letterier’s magician thriller have arrived (or should I say they have magically appeared?). And they look awesome, with flames coming out of Morgan Freeman’s forehead, Dave Franco performing an intense card trick, and a graffiti-ed stage set. I repeat – FLAMES coming out of Morgan Freeman’s forehead!!

Up until now, "Now You See Me," the magician thriller by "Incredible Hulk" director Louis Leterrier, seemed like a potential sleeper hit. It's got a terrific cast (including Jesse Eisenberg, Mark Ruffalo, Woody Harrelson and Melanie Laurent), an intriguing premise (magicians rob banks and then distribute the money to their audiences), and a solid creative team behind the scenes (including frequent J.J. Abrams collaborators Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman) – but that was before we had seen anything from the movie. Now that a second trailer has arrived chock full of new footage, the question remains – did the filmmakers and marketing gurus show too much of their hand? Or is there enough mystery to get you to come back this summer?

...and just when we thought we had put away our magic puns for a while with the release of "The Incredible Burt Wonderstone," another movie set in the Las Vegas world of magic is coming. Although, this looks like it will be much, much better. Louis Letterier could have one of the summer's sleeper surprises on his hands with "Now You See Me" and some new promo material has arrived to try to weave a spell on you.

Even though he didn't feature in Whit Stillman's "Damsels In Distress," the last year or so has seen the director's muse Chris Eigeman, who starred in "Metropolitan," "Barcelona" and "The Last Days Of Disco," become rather more visible again. There's the potential of a reunion with his favorite director in the works, and Eigeman's been cropping up on TV in the acclaimed likes of "Girls" and "Bunheads" in the last twelve months, but it looks like the comeback might be complete, as Eigeman's prepping his second directorial feature, and has attracted a pretty impressive cast.

Though already well established as a comic actor, writer and director thanks to his work on Brit TV in fare such as "The IT Crowd," "Garth Marenghi's Darkplace" and more, with his debut feature film "Submarine," Richard Ayoade proved himself to be an astute stylist as well. While lazy folks compared his assemblage of French New Wave tics, mixed visual formats and a careful eye for set decoration and costuming as a Wes Anderson riff, he proved he could stand well enough on his own. And it looks like for his next effort, "The Double," he will make a distinct 180 from what he did before.

Next summer is, as usual, going to be competitive; there's the usual mix of superhero sequels ("Iron Man 3," "The Wolverine"), animated sequels ("Monsters University,""Despicable Me 2"), R-rated comedy sequels ("The Hangover Part III") and just general sequels ("Star Trek Into Darkness," "Fast & Furious 6," "Kick-Ass 2"). As such, original fare is going to have a trickier time of it, but Summit is getting started early with their magician heist movie "Now You See Me," debuting a trailer in front of their golden goose "Twilight" this weekend.

Even after the back-to-back successes of "Zombieland" and "The Social Network," it was never quite clear if Jesse Eisenberg would be able to maintain a lasting stardom. He's an immensely talented actor, but also one who's been strongly associated with a certain kind of role, one that, like Michael Cera, risked the general public tiring of him quite quickly. But while his immediate follow-up to "The Social Network," "30 Minutes Or Less," was something of a disappointment, he's made several smart choices of late, from star-laden heist blockbuster "Now You See Me" to a dual role in "The Double," Richard Ayoade's follow-up to the acclaimed "Submarine."

Yes, Jesse Eisenberg and Melissa Leo have made their first film together with "Why Stop Now." But while they are both known for being solid dramatic actors, the feature debut from writing and directing pair Phil Dorling and Ron Nyswaner finds them exercising their excellent comic skills instead.

After a brief pause from acting in the past year, actor Jesse Eisenberg is slowly finding his way back onto cinema screens, most recently in Woody Allen's latest, “To Rome With Love.” That isn't to say the actor's been lounging off his Fincher cash though, as a first glimpse from his starring Sundance entry, as well as details of his second off-Broadway-penned effort, have shown up to provide two different sides to the actor's work.

L.A. Film Fest Review: 'To Rome With Love' Is Another Minor Foreign Postcard From Woody Allen

In the recent PBS "American Masters" portrait of Woody Allen by director Robert Weide, Allen describes how he has a file folder filled with hundreds of loglines for movies he has come up with over the years; after completing each film, he sorts through them, finds one that speaks to him at the time and writes it up. To that end, "To Rome With Love" feels like four minor stories that Allen found in a pile and loosely stitched together in a narrative tied to Rome. That said, Rome is beautiful, and a mouthwatering set for any director. Unfortunately, you can't build a movie on a set alone.
