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.

Now You See Me, Trailer

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.

And now that trailer has made its way online to Yahoo (via The Moviebox), and you can start to see why the studio is feeling so bullish about the movie. As you can discover from the clip, the film, directed by Louis Leterrier ("Clash of the Titans") involves a quartet of magicians (Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Isla Fisher and Dave Franco) who seemingly rob a French bank live on stage in Las Vegas. Mark Ruffalo and Melanie Laurent are the law enforcement types after them, Michael Caine is the owner of the bank and seemingly a villain, and Morgan Freeman is... it's slightly unclear, but possibly a magical consultant? Or something?

Anyway, it's a cracking cast, and all look to be in good form, while Leterrier's direction is as slick as you'd expect. And the teaser effectively sells a mystery that seems to land somewhere between Spike Lee's "Inside Man" and "The Prestige," and we're certainly intrigued enough to get us through the door, even if we've got some doubts about some of the levels of CGI. Watch the trailer below, and find out how the trick is done when "Now You See Me" hits theaters on June 7th, 2013.
