The Incredible Burt Wonderstone Trailer

21 December 2012

The first trailer for the Steve Carrell/ Jim Carrey magician comedy has been pulled out of an online hat. 

Carrell plays an ageing, over-the-hill magician who, with his partner Anton Marvelton (Steve Buscemi), is playing to paltry crowds in Vegas while facing the demise of the act. 

And when Jim Carrey's illusionist, Criss Angel arrives on the scene, it puts even more strain on their relationship. And as the rivalry between the acts increases, the tricks become ever-more elaborate. 

We've not heard much about The Incredible Burt Wonderstone during production, which makes it a pleasant surprise to see a trailer for a completely original film that looks genuinely laugh-out-loud funny.
