Lionsgate Home Entertainment has recently added Now You See Me 2 to its roster, scheduling a release of the illusion-infused thriller on DVD, Blu-Ray Disc and 4K Ultra HD in late August.
The Four Horsemen (Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Dave Franco, Lizzy Caplan) return for a second mind-bending adventure, elevating the limits of stage illusion to new heights and taking them around the globe. One year after outwitting the FBI and winning the public’s adulation with their Robin Hood-style magic spectacles, the illusionists 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 (Daniel Radcliffe), 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.
The DVD version of the release will include the feature film itself, along with an Audio Commentary by Director Jon Chu, and the Featurette “You Can’t Look Away”.
In it’s Blu-Ray version, the release looks a slight bit more bulky, offering up a 1080p high definition version of the movie, along with the Audio Commentary by Director Jon M. Chu, as well as the three Featurettes “The Art of the Ensemble,” “You Can’t Look Away” and “Bringing Magic to Life”.
“Now You See Me 2” will arrive in stores on August 23. The 4K Ultra HD/Blu-Ray combo will carry a $42.98 sticker price, while the Blu-Ray version will carry a $39.99 sticker price, and the DVD arrives for $29.95.
