Trailer: The Incredible Burt Wonderstone

Dec 21 // Hubert Vigilla    @HubertVigilla

If you've ever wondered how Siegfried and/or Roy would do in a magic battle against Chris Angel, The Incredible Burt Wonderstone has the answer. Also, if you've wondered this, you should really get out more. Besides, everyone knows that Ricky Jay would show up and win on cool points alone.

The film stars Steve Carell and Jim Carrey as two rival magicians, one that's chintzy and old school while the other's gritty and new school. The film also stars Steve Buscemi, Olivia Wilde, Alan Arkin, James Gandolfini, and Jay Mohr. Here's a synopsis:

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 out March 15th. You can check out some character posters for the film in the gallery.
