Macao is one of the venues for the second part of the 2013 box office hit movie Now You See Me, called Now You See Me 2.

In his movie, Macao is the setting for much of the action as the master magicians known as the Four Horsemen - Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Dave Franco and Lizzy Caplan - return for their most daring and astounding caper ever.

Together with London and New York, Macao is one of the three main destinations showcased in the film, which showcases everything from Macao's street vendors and people playing mah-jongg on the streets to luxury hotels, both sides of Macao's “east-meets-west” personality.


For Jon Chu, who directed Now You See Me 2, Macao was the perfect place to set many of the film's central scenes.

He said: “Macao is an exotic, beautiful, strange mix of Portuguese architecture and Chinese culture, with Las Vegas thrown in for good measure. Everywhere you point the camera is gorgeous. The feeling and the texture of the place embody the spirit of what this movie is about.”

Talking about his decision to shoot on location, Chu says, “You can't duplicate the streets of Macao. Every detail is important, from the tiles on the sidewalks to locals putting up their laundry.
