* MagicianDetective: The movie is about stage magicians who work grand thefts into their act... forcing investigators to find out how the hell they manage their tricks so they can actually prove it. Thaddeus Bradley, skeptic magician debunker, is not himself a detective, but he is called in as a consultant by the investigators.

It is about a group of Robin Hood-style magicians called the Four Horsemen. The Horsemen are J. Daniel Atlas (Creator/JesseEisenberg), a professional street magician who specializes in escalating card tricks; Merritt [=McKinney=] (Creator/WoodyHarrelson), a hypnotist, mentalist and mind reader; Henley Reeves (Creator/IslaFisher), an escape artist and the sole woman in the troupe; and Jack Wilder (Dave Franco), a street artist, voice imitator and MasterOfUnlocking. They use their illusions to steal money and give it to their audience despite the impossibility of it. As they become more infamous, an FBI agent and an Interpol detective chase after them.
