The Incredible Burt Wonderstone looks to be an amazingly hysterical movie. It shows off Jim Carrey‘s return to comedy (yes, I don’t count Mr. Popper’s Penguins amongst his finest work) as a Criss Angel-style magician trying to upstage the old-school magicians duo of Steve Carrell and Steve Buscemi. Check out the trailer down below!
Here’s the official synopsis for The Incredible Burt Wonderstone:
Superstar magicians Burt Wonderstone (Steve Carell) and Anton Marvelton (Steve Buscemi) have ruled the Las Vegas strip for years, raking in millions with illusions as big as Burt’s growing ego. But lately the duo’s greatest deception is their public friendship, while secretly they’ve grown to loathe each other. Facing cutthroat competition from guerilla street magician Steve Gray (Jim Carrey), whose cult following surges with each outrageous stunt, even their show looks stale. But there’s still a chance Burt and Anton can save the act—both onstage and off—if Burt can get back in touch with what made him love magic in the first place.
The Incredible Burt Wonderstone comes to theatres March 15th, 2013. The film also stars: James Gandolfini, Olivia Wilde, Alan Arkin, and Jay Mohr.
