'Now You See Me 3' release date, spoilers: Top movie websites list film for a 2020 premiere
Some of the top search results when one looks up “Now You See Me 3” are links to top movie websites. A couple of online sources is currently listing the film with a supposed 2020 release date.
The second movie premiered in 2016, which was around three years since the film series debuted. This led many to speculate that “Now You See Me 3” could premiere sometime this year.
‘Now You See Me 3’ release date: Movie listed for a 2020 premiere
Rotten Tomatoes and IMDb are some of the reliable online sources when it comes to updates on upcoming movies and TV shows. So when some people see that these sites are currently listing "Now You See Me 3" to be released in 2020, they might easily take it as a fact.
It should be noted, however, that Lionsgate and other people attached to the movie series have yet to confirm if the production for “Now You See Me 3” has started. But these online listings should not be entirely dismissed as well.
‘Now You See Me 3’: Why popular movie sites are listing heist thriller with a 2020 release date?
It can be recalled that Lionsgate confirmed they have started planning for “Now You See Me 3” as early as 2015. In November 2016, it was reported that the production company had signed Neil Widener and Gavin James to work on the third film’s script. That was the latest updates fans had about the movie.
The 2020 release date listed for “Now You See Me 3” is most likely a so-called placeholder. Video game fans are familiar with this one. Placeholder dates are usually given by online sites and vendors for titles that are most likely in development and would be released in the future.
There has never been a report yet about the “Now You See Me 3” getting canceled. This explains why placeholder dates could be found online. Unfortunately, placeholders are not necessarily similar to a producer’s actual plan.
