It’s a movie we’ve been hearing about for over a year now, and finally the debut trailer for The Incredible Burt Wonderstone is here. Starring Steve Carell, Steve Buscemi, and Jim Carrey, this movie focuses on the increasingly-competitive magician business. After Wonderstone (Carell) leaves his on-stage partner (Buscemi), he travels to Vegas in order to stay relevant. But he finds a new adversary in the form of a hip street magician in the style of Criss Angel, played by Carrey.
With a stacked comedic cast, including Alan Arkin, and a pretty solid premise, Burt Wonderstone has a lot going for it. Even though this debut trailer isn’t incredibly funny, it still hits all of the right notes and makes us believe that something entertaining will come from all its potential. At the very least, we know Alan Arkin will bring the goods.
The Incredible Burt Wonderstone will hit theaters on March 15, 2013.
