According to Forbes, Now You See Me 2 opened well over the weekend with a $23 million debut which is “enough to justify a ‘Now You See Me 3.’ Tristan Sarabia (17’) was able to see the movie over the weekend and says, “It was the best movie I’ve seen so far this year. It was literally movie magic.” The movie features all sorts of tricks and illusions to be seen as magic by all viewers.
