It’s the most magical Most Craved episode ever! This week we’re inviting filmmaker Jon M. Chu to talk about his latest blockbuster Now You See Me 2, and expand on his impressive career behind the camera.

You know Jon M. Chu from such films as Step Up 2 The StreetsStep Up 3D and G.I. Joe Retaliation. Now he’s back with another sequel and telling us how he approached the unexpected success of the last film, his background in magic, and his unusual journey around the world to pitch Now You See Me 2 on the set of other movies, like Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. And since he’s already signed on to direct Now You See Me 3, we have to ask him about what comes next!

Also: John DiMaggio and Maurice LaMarche Talk ‘Zootopia’ on Most Craved!
