'Now You See Me' Blu-ray Dated and Detailed

Posted Fri Jul 19, 2013 at 08:00 AM PDT by

The heist flick starring Jesse Eisenberg will vanish before your very eyes on Blu-ray in September.

In an early announcement to retailers, Summit Entertainment is preparing 'Now You See Me' for Blu-ray on September 3.

The Four Horsemen, a magic super-group led by the charismatic J. Daniel Atlas (Jesse Eisenberg), perform a pair of high-tech, high-profile magic shows. First amazing audiences by remotely robbing a Paris bank while in Las Vegas, and then exposing a white-collar criminal and funneling his millions into the audience members' bank accounts, baffling the authorities. FBI Special Agent Dylan Rhodes (Mark Ruffalo) is determined to make the magicians pay for their crimes—and to stop them before they pull off what promises to be an even more audacious heist. But he's forced to partner with Alma (Melanie Laurent), an Interpol detective about whom he is instantly suspicious. Out of desperation, he turns to a famed magic debunker, who claims the Paris bank trick was actually a meticulously planned illusion. Dylan and Alma begin to wonder if the Horsemen have an outside point person. If so, finding him (or her) would be the key to ending the magicians' crime spree. But who could it be? Or…could it really be…magic?

The Blu-ray/DVD/UltraViolet combo pack will feature 1080p video and a DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 soundtrack, and supplements will include: Extended Director's Cut Featuring 16 Minutes of Never-Before-Seen Footage; Audio Commentary with Producer Bobby Cohen and Director Louis Leterrier (Theatrical Cut Only); "Now You See Me Revealed" featurette; "A Brief History of Magic" featurette; and Deleted Scenes.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $39.99.
