The Incredible Burt Wonderstone looks sort of, well…incredible. At the very least it looks like a good use of its incredibly talented cast. Thanks to USA Today have the first two official images from the film, giving us a look at Steve Carell, Steve Buscemi, Jim Carrey and Jay Mohr. We also have four character posters featuring Carell, Carrey, Buscemi and Olivia Wilde and the first trailer below:
Longtime Las Vegas favorite, magician Burt Wonderstone (Carell), and his sidekick, Anton Lovecraft (Buscemi), have allowed their show to grow stale, while up-and-coming Steve Haines (Carrey), is stealing the limelight.
Entitled, cynical and jaded, Burt finds himself out of a job and broke, while Anton heads to Cambodia to spread the joy of magic to hungry villagers. It takes Burt’s original mentor, Rance Hanson (Alan Arkin), to talk sense into glum Burt, as well as a good kick in the keester by his adoring assistant, Jane (Wilde), to get Burt on track – back doing magic with all the zeal and passion that compelled him as a youngster…
Don Scardino (“30 Rock”) makes his feature directorial debut, with the script by Chad Kultgen, and the team of John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein (Horrible Bosses).
James Gandolfini, Melissa Ordway and Brad Garrett also star.
The Incredible Burt Wonderstone is due in the US on March 15. No word yet on the UK, but it’s reasonable to think they’ll get it around the same time.
