The Incredible Burt Wonderstone sees Steve Buscemi and Steve Carell starring not as 'The Two Steves' but as magical Las Vegas double act Wonderstone and Marvelton. As you'll see from the posters below, joining them are Jim Carrey (as rival street magician Steve Gray) and Olivia Wilde (as Burt's love interest and fellow master of the arcane arts).
You can check out the trailer for The Incredible Burt Wonderstone at the bottom of this news story, but if you're not already in the know, the plot revolves around Siegfried & Roy-a-likes Wonderstone and Marvelton trying to compete with David Blaine wannabe Steve Gray as their show fails to draw in thew punters when pitted against his stunt-based antics.
What makes matters worse is when they do try a big public stunt - staying in a see-through box for a week - things go horribly wrong and Anton ends up injured, making things far worse for our man Wonderstone.
Here below are a couple of stills from the film to give you another taste for what's to come, and if you're looking for more encouragement, be sure to check out the latest issue of Empire which has more details on the magical mystery comedy. What's more, the movie's being directed by 30 Rock alumnus Don Scardino - it's his first feature, in fact - which bodes well for fans of the show.
Boasting a script by Horrible Bosses team John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, Burt will appear in a puff of cine-smoke on March 15.
good posters. the movie looks good. I just hope Carrey gets a decent amount of screen time. Having him as 'and Jim Carrey' on the poster suggests its more of a cameo. I miss Carrey doing more movies! More
