Las Vegas magician Cris Johnson (Nicolas Cage) has struggled throughout his life with a secret ability; he can see two minutes ahead into his own future and change events before they happen. When both the FBI and a group a terrorists go after him — each for a different reason — Cris fears that providing help will only lead to a lifetime of testing as a guinea pig for the U.S. government.

Featured Animal Action

Although Certified Animal Safety Representatives monitored Cris' magic trick involving a gecko that materializes in a boy's hand, we were unable to directly supervise the rest of the animal action in Next due to limited resources and/or scheduling conflicts.

However, the production complied with all registration requirements, submitted a shooting script and relevant animal scheduling information and provided a pre-release screening of the film, as requested by American Humane.
