Now You See Me 3

Now You See Me 2 doesn’t open until June 10, but Lionsgate apparently has a lot of faith that it will deliver. The studio has revealed the existence of Now You See Me 3 at the Cannes Film Market, one of the eight upcoming films it has on its sales slate. The first Now You See Me was a big hit, grossing $351 million worldwide, but it’s also not a movie you hear too many people still talking about three years later. Although a third film could happen, it could just as easily disappear up Lionsgate’s sleeve in a puff of smoke. Let’s wait and see.

The Huntsman: Winters War arrived with a sigh a few weeks ago, receiving negative reviews and opening to poor box office. It looks like Kristen Stewart, the star of Snow White and the Huntsman, made the right choice in sitting this one out…and she says that she saw this coming:

I read a few scripts. None of them were good. None of them were greenlight-able. And I had a meeting with Universal about the places where the story could go. Maybe Chris [Hemsworth] was more into it. I actually don’t f—ing know.

She was even asked to make a cameo, which she also declined:

The studio did reach out to ask if she would appear in a cameo as Snow White. She told them, “I might just leave that be. I was really into that, but …” she adds with a smirk. “So now I’m like … ‘Thank God.'”

Okay, but how do you really feel, Ms. Stewart?

All you need to know about Kill Zone 2 is that it features Tony Jaa, Wu Jing, and Zhan Jin beating the crap out of a whole bunch of people with their martial arts skills. The trailer barely even suggests a plot – come for action, stay for the action. It helps that this sequel apparently has no serious connections to the original, so action fans should be able to just dive right in. But if you do want to know more, here’s the synopsis:

When an undercover cop gets too close to revealing the mastermind of a drug syndicate, his cover is blown. Double-crossed and under a false identity, he’s thrown into a Thai prison, where a guard discovers the inmate – claiming he’s a cop – is a bone marrow match for his dying daughter…and his warden may have an even deadlier operation hidden within the prison walls.

In this giddily frenetic follow-up (though not a sequel) to modern martial arts epic KILL ZONE (aka SPL: SHA PO LANG), action icons Tony Jaa (ONG BAK, THE PROTECTOR) Wu Jing (WOLF WARRIOR) and Zhang Jin (IP MAN 3) team up with Hong Kong megastars Simon Yam, and Louis Koo for a breakneck story of dirty cops, prison riots, and black market organ transplants, all brought together by a non-stop series of inventive, bone-crunching setpieces.
