The Four Horsemen return to dazzle their worldwide audience once again, while taking down a nefarious enemy to boot in the first trailer for Now You See Me 2, which was previously known as Now You See Me 2: The Second Act. Jesse Eisenberg (J. Daniel Atlas), Woody Harrelson (Merritt McKinney) and Dave Franco (Jack Wilder) all reprise their roles from 2013's Now You See Me, with Lizzy Caplan coming aboard as the new Horseman, Lula, replacing Isla Fisher's Henley Reeves. This trailer also briefly introduces us to the Horsemen's new adversary in Now You See Me 2, Walter Mabry, played by Daniel Radcliffe.
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.Read More
Given the massive popularity of the franchise, it's possible, even likely, that Warner Bros. could acquire the rights and develop a movie adaptation of the stage play, but we'll have to wait and see.

The story is set 70 years before Harry Potter first set foot in Hogwarts.

It doesn't get anymore official than this. Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe is a certified Hollywood legend. And he's now been immortalized forever in the city of dreams. On Thursday, the actor showed up in downtown Los Angeles, where he received his very own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. And while this was certainly a huge deal, those in attendance were more wowed by the actor's sudden hair loss.
Daniel Radcliffe began acting as a very young child, and became an overnight household name when Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone debuted in 2001 as the first in what would become one of the biggest movie franchises of all time. So it comes as no surprise that he's been awarded his star at the ripe old age of 26. He received the honors in the midst of his press tour for his latest thriller, Victor Frankenstein. In theaters this month, Daniel Radcliffe plays Igor, the infamous sidekick, in this revisionist take on Mary Shelley's classic horror novel.Read More
Victor Frankenstein is directed by Paul McGuigan, known best for his work on the hit PBS and BBC series Sherlock, and it is written by the often outspoken Max Landis, who has become more known as a celebrity than a screenwriter after making waves with the superhero movie Chronicle. With both of these unique artists collaborating on this new horror tale, it's sure to be something very different and quite special in the genre.
Victor Frankenstein isn't the only new take on Mary Shelley's classic novel coming to theaters this year. 2015's Frankenstein will be a modern update on the story, with Carrie-Anne Moss and Danny Huston playing a married couple of scientists who create a modern day monster in Xavier Samuel. With Victor Frankenstein, Paul McGuigan is focusing more on the relationship between Dr. Frankenstein and Igor, with the assistant getting more of a spotlight than he ever has before.Read More

Daniel Radcliffe is in talks to star in Grand Theft Auto, a BBC Films drama about a legal fracas that ensued over the hyper-violent video games of the same name. If a deal is finalized, Daniel Radcliffe will play Sam Houser, the co-founder and president of Rockstar Games, who is credited with popularizing the ultra-violent Grand Theft Auto video game series. While the game was created by David Jones and Sam Dailly, Sam Houser and his brother Dan Houser brought the games into a 3D environment with Grand Theft Auto III, while increasing the levels of violence exponentially.
The story will center on Houser and his Rockstar Games company, as they came under repeated attacks from a Florida lawyer named Jack Thompson in the early 2000s. Thompson was already attacking media companies for pushing rap music and sexually explicit content on TV, when he turned his attention to the glorification of violence in the video game industry. The lawyer was eventually disbarred in 2008 for inappropriate behavior.Read More
