Now You See Me

Who doesn’t love heist movies? Add a rag tag group of illusionists to the mix and you have got yourself a winner. An FBI agent and an Interpol detective try to track down a team of illusionists who dazzle the crowds with their antics. But here is the catch, during their performance, a bank is robbed elsewhere in the world and the money is distributed to the audience. The trailer promises a spectacular show, enhanced on the big screen!
Expected to hit theaters on June 7.
Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani
Starring: Ranbir Kapoor, Deepika Padukone, Kalki Koechlin
Director: Ayan Mukerji
Of course Bollywood must have its classic rom com for the summer. Deepika Padukone and Ranbir Kapoor have fast become A list celebrities and their movies generally do well in the box office. The story is nothing new, a crazy young man meets a stick-in-the-mud girl and tries to show her the lighter side of life. Will sparks fly? Of course the will. But from the director of Wake Up Sid, we can expect something fresh and youthful.
Expected to hit theatres on May 31
Man of Steel
Starring: Henry Cavill, Russell Crowe, Amy Adams
Director: Zack Snyder
After the disaster that was 2006′s Superman Returns, the franchise is back with another offering. Besides, what is the summer season if not the anticipation of our favourite suoer-hero movies? Henry Cavill stars as the invincible Clarke Kent. The story is known to all, he lands as a baby from planet Krypton to be adopted by a childless couple in Kansas. He has extraordinary powers with which he tries to save the world. Audiences are looking forward to the treatment by Snyder who is known for his critically-acclaimed Watchmen. Though this Superman is without the signature red underwear so we are not sure how that will fare.
