Now You See Me 2

Synopsis: One year after outwitting the FBI and winning the public's adulation with their Robin Hood-style magic spectacles, The Four Horsemen resurface for a comeback performance in hopes of exposing the unethical practices of a tech magnate. The man behind their vanishing act is none other than Walter Mabry, a tech prodigy who threatens the Horsemen into pulling off their most impossible heist yet. Their only hope is to perform one last unprecedented stunt to clear their names and reveal the mastermind behind it all.

Elite magic society.

There is chatter going on

about the Horsemen

and something happening with Octa,

the giant software company.

I know what Octa is.

I'm sorry, ma'am,

but two months ago

we sent men to Philadelphia

because he knew...

- And I said that I was wrong.

- He knew that the Horsemen

were going to hit

the Euro-Atlantic Banking Summit.

- I have proof.

- Let him talk.

Thank you.


Contact between who I think

might be Daniel Atlas

and who may be Merritt McKinney.

And what do you have?

Emails? Cell phones? Any transcripts?

- Pigeons.

- What?

I'm sorry,

you mean stool pigeons?

No, I mean actual pigeon pigeons.

Like carrier pigeons.

- Okay? Magicians work with pigeons.

- Doves.

Stay with me.

This pigeon, right here...

There's Daniel Atlas.

Same pigeon.

East Village.

Same pigeon, West Village.

42nd Street, pigeon. 65th Street.

All the way up to the

George Washington Bridge

on a sail boat with a guy that looks

just like Merritt McKinney.

And what does this all mean?

I know what it means.

It means nothing. It's bullshit.

- Could you sing a new song?

- No.

How is it that two years ago

you were so close...

You think I went out of my way

to screw up my own investigation?

You think I'm

that big of an idiot?

You know what I think now?

I think you're smart,

but you want everybody else

to think that you're an idiot.

Okay, stop.

Cowan, I know I'm new here,

but as far as I can tell,

people who don't even know you,

think you're an asshole.

- And you?

- Ma'am.

You don't know me, but my first year

in the Academy, you gave a talk.

The "long game" you called it.

You talked about a moral compass.

About how you believed

in yours immutably.

And I thought to myself, "That guy.

One day, I want to be that guy."
