Now You See Me 2 : New Zealand Premiere

Auckland magician Mick Peck performs magic at the NZ premiere of Now You See Me 2 movie

Great to perform my strolling closeup magic at the New Zealand premiere of Now You See Me 2 this week.  The sequel to the 2013 heist adventure film opens nationwide June 9th 2016.

Set three years after the events of the first film, the Four Horsemen return for a second mind-bending adventure, elevating the limits of stage illusion to new heights.  After outwitting the FBI and winning the public’s adulation with their Robin Hood-style magic spectacles, the illusionists resurface for a comeback performance in the hopes of exposing the unethical practices of a tech magnate.  Their only hope is to perform one last unprecedented stunt to clear their names and reveal the mastermind behind it all.

Magic on The Hits with Flynny

Auckland magician Mick Peck with Hits radio personality Flynny, birthday party magic show

Pictured here with The Hits radio personality Flynny.  His son had a birthday party coming up and had asked Dad to perform some magic for the occasion.  Easy right?  Maybe not, so I was brought in to teach him some magic.  Alter-ego The Flynnician was born.

Unfortunately his debut performance received a muted reaction and the birthday guests weren’t impressed with his cape, so I stepped in to save the day.  Maybe entertaining the kiddies is harder than it looks after all.

“Thank you Mick for doing an amazing magic show for Leo’s birthday today … you are a great entertainer and a very kind person!  Leo was so happy and blown away as were we.  A very skilled and gifted entertainer and a huge hit with both the kids and adults.  If you want an extremely memorable party for your child – Mick is the real deal. 10/10.” – Flynny
