New SLEIGHT Trailer Asks If Magic Is Really Just a Trick

In the world of Sleight, the magic certainly does look real. But for one street magician, it may not be quite enough to save the life of his sister, or even his own life. The film stars Jacob Latimore as Bo, a magician whose talent for simple illusions may be more than it initially seems. As we see in the latest trailer for Sleight, it isn’t quite clear what’s really going on when Bo pulls off a trick. Are there hidden devices in his arsenal, or has his so-called magic truly become a reality? Whatever , Bo is going to need everything he’s got tucked up his sleeve when he finds out he has to rescue his kidnapped sister.

The new trailer establishes some of Bo’s backstory as a young man who was forced to raise his sister after the deaths of their parents. Unfortunately for Bo, his ties to local criminals have attracted some unwanted attention from a few dangerous individuals. Now, they’ve taken Bo’s younger sister as a hostage, and Bo isn’t coming home without her. Of course, there’s also the possibility that Bo isn’t coming home at all.

In addition to Latimore, the film stars Seychelle Gabriel, Dulé Hill, Sasheer Zamata, and Storm Reid. J.D. Dillard directed Sleight, and he also co-wrote the script with Alex Theurer. The film hits theaters on Friday, April 7.
