The Incredible Burt Wonderstone Trailer Pits Carell Against Carrey
In the battle to see which magician will be best, we think everyone in The Incredible Burt Wonderstone trailer is a winner. Its line-up includes Steve Carell, Steve Buscemi and Jim Carrey, with Alan Arkin and Olivia Wilde rounding out the cast.
Not intrigued already? The trailer might be enough to convince you. It’s a bit cheesy, like Carell and Carrey’s movies have been in the past, but the addition of heavyweights like Buscemi and Arkin really makes up for it. Whether the movie will be as good as the trailer makes it seem or it ends up being one-note remains to be seen, but at least Criss Angel should feel a little uncomfortable with this justifiable mockery.
Directed by Don Scardino (30 Rock, Law & Order), The Incredible Burt Wonderstone stars Carell, Carrey, Buscemi, Wilde, Arkin, James Gandolfini and Gillian Jacobs. It’s due in theaters on March 15. John Francis Daley, Jonathan M. Goldstein and Chad Kultgen wrote the story. Here’s its official synopsis: “After breaking up with his longtime stage partner, a famous but jaded Vegas magician fights for relevance when a new, ‘hip’ street magician appears on the scene.”
