Warner Bros. has sent over a slew of new images from the magical (see what Idid there) new movie starring Steve Carell and Jim Carrey. Assume that this movie chronicles how it went down between David Blane and the Fox magician that gave away all those secrets.
It’s never too late to make fun of bad magicians. About 10 years ago magic was on an upswing. There were specials on Fox and ABC showcasing various levels of magic skills and things that were called “magic tricks”. An example of these “magic tricks” would be about 10 years ago when David Blane was doing all those retarded things like holding his breath under water while he took a piss and calling it magic.
Personally I love magic. I had a kit as a child that my grandfather bought me from Kip’s Toyland at Farmers Market here in Los Angeles. I use to put on shows for my family on weekends (yes I’m a nerd). Therefore I can totally relate to this movie and look forward to a retardedly good time.
Superstar magicians Burt Wonderstone (Steve Carell) and Anton Marvelton (Steve Buscemi) have ruled the Las Vegas Strip for years, raking in millions with illusions as big as Burt’s growing ego. But lately the duo’s greatest deception is their public friendship, while secretly they’ve grown to loathe each other.
Facing cutthroat competition from guerilla street magician Steve Gray (Jim Carrey), whose cult following surges with each outrageous stunt, even their show is starting to look stale. But there’s still a chance Burt and Anton can save the act—both onstage and off—if only Burt can get back in touch with what made him love magic in the first place.
“The Incredible Burt Wonderstone” stars Steve Carell and Steve Buscemi as long-reigning headliners and one-time best friends Burt and Anton, and Olivia Wilde as their glamorous magic assistant, Jane. Alan Arkin stars as old-school illusionist Rance Holloway; James Gandolfini as casino mogul Doug Munny; and Jim Carrey as the team’s number one rival, Steve Gray.
The Incredible Burt Wonderstone opens in theaters on March 15th, 2013
