Burt Wonderstone Clip Online
Steve Carell & Jim Carrey square off

27 February 2013  |  Written by James White  |  Source: Yahoo

Steve Carell calling Jim Carrey’s act “monkey porn.” Carrey sniping back a few sentences later with “your skin makes me cry.” From the looks of this first full clip, The Incredible Burt Wonderstone offers more than just an assortment of crazy wigs. Take a look below, provided you’re not worried about your worst nightmare becoming a dream reality. 

Burt Wonderstone, as you may know by now, finds Carell as the titular Vegas casino magician, one-half of an act with Anton Marvelton (Steve Buscemi) that is most definitely in the old school Siegfried and Roy silly outfit/sillier hair style.

But when competition arrives, in the form of Carrey’s cooler rival Steve Gray, and Burt faces losing his contract with casino owner Doug Munny (James Gandolfini), he tries a spectacular trick that goes spectacularly wrong. Anton is injured and the duo break up the act. Dejected, Burt finds his old inspiration, Rance Holloway (Alan Arkin), now grumpily living in a retirement home. Can he help our hero reclaim his magical mojo?

The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, which also features Olivia Wilde, Gillian Jacobs and Brad Garrett, arrives on March 15.
