We saw a brilliant new trailer surface at the end of last month. And with just a few weeks left before it hits the big screen, Warner Bros. have released a great new TV spot to give us a taste of what to expect.
“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 in The Incredible Burt Wonderstone will be James Gandolfini, Alan Arkin, Melissa Ordway, Brad Garrett, and Jay Mohr.
Don Scardino (30 Rock) is making his feature directorial debut, and it looks like he’s done a fine job behind the camera for his first film. Horrible Bosses scribes John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein co-wrote the script, and given that they’ve written one of the funniest films in years, I think it’s safe to say we should be in luck here next month.
The Incredible Burt Wonderstone will be released in the UK and US on 15th March. I can’t wait. This is going to be a lot of fun.
