Now You See Me VS. The Incredible Burt Wonderstone: Which MAGIC MOVIE Do You Want to See?

Now You See Me VS. The Incredible Burt Wonderstone: Which MAGIC MOVIE Do You Want to See?

By Chelsea Dagger

Summit/Film-o-Filia and Warner Bros

Take a moment and picture a young Chelsea Dagger: clever, sweaty, terribly handsome—in short, a born magician. But even as an 8-year-old, I knew that my chubby fingers and utter lack of hand-eye coordination (I had the athletic skills of a small red panda), would never allow me to pull off the intricate, complicated tricks or the superb dance moves required of a true showman. However, I've always admired the art of the illusion (especially when Gob, Buster, and Tony Wonder are involved) and could never turn down a good magic-related flick (this one pretty much blew my MIND)—so just in case a a few of you Sparklebutts share my enthusiasm for dramatic lighting, card tricks, and high-stakes intrigue, I figured I'd share these two trailers.

Now You See Me:


First Reactions:

- WHAT UP, MR. ZUCKERBERG. Jesse Eisenberg doesn't look too shabby when he's got some stubble.

- Am I the only one who didn't know about James Franco's hot younger brother, Dave? HELLO THERE, DAVE. FANCY A MILKSHAKE AND A MAKE-OUT SESH?

- THE HANDCUFF THING! THE HANDCUFF THING!

- Any movie that has Woody Harrelson, Mark Ruffalo, and Morgan Freeman is pretty much a guaranteed winner in my book.

The Incredible Burt Wonderstone:


First Reactions:

-Important life lesson: magic beats bullies!

-How could anything with Steve Carrell ever be bad, especially when he's wearing so much bedazzled velour?

-I think I might hate Jim Carrey, but I can't pinpoint why.

Which movie do you want to see? (You're allowed to answer "both," but you'll need to give a detailed justification backed by numerous scientific facts.)
