We’ve got just two more weeks before The Incredible Burt Wonderstone hits the big screen, and I can’t wait to see it when it does. Jim Carrey and Steve Carell lead a brilliant cast, and it looks like it could well be the comedy to beat this year.
We’ve recently been treated to a great new trailer and TV spot in the past few weeks. And now Warner Bros. have released two more TV spots, giving us a great new look at the leading magicians at work.
“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.”
Steve Buscemi and Olivia Wilde complete the leading quartet nicely. And starring alongside them are James Gandolfini, Alan Arkin, Melissa Ordway, Brad Garrett, and Jay Mohr.
Don Scardino (30 Rock) is making his feature directorial debut with The Incredible Burt Wonderstone. And it looks like he’s done a great job. Horrible Bosses scribes John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein co-wrote the script, and since Horrible Bosses is one of the funniest films in years, I think we’ve got a lot to look forward to here.
The Incredible Burt Wonderstone will be released on 15th March in the UK and US, and that’s definitely a release date you’ll want to remember. This is going to be awesome. Enjoy.
