Jamie was introduced by two of the movies stars Jesse Eisenberg and Dave Franco via a big screen ahead of the film’s release on Monday, Raven performed a variety of dazzling close-up routines themed around the film at the London shopping mall, giving the public many chances to earn bank notes and other prizes.
The grand finale involved a grand illusion where the sky rained with money (A mix of real and promotional bank notes)
“Magic is enjoying a huge surge in popularity recently and the The Now You See Me films are playing a significant part in that, with the ‘Four Horsemen’ inspiring a new generation of fans and budding magicians. I was delighted to have been nominated as the ‘fifth horseman’ here in London for this spectacular stunt” – Jamie said.
“There was quite a frenzy when the bank notes appeared on such a busy Saturday shopping day and I was really impressed by how sporting everyone was, sharing the wealth among those lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time.”
Now You See Me 2 is released in cinemas on 4th July
