Steve Carrell’s magician Burt Wonderstone isn’t exactly a master of illusion. But he’s got plenty of passion.
The first trailer for The Incredible Burt Wonderstone shows Carrell and his partner in magic (Steve Buscemi) rocking some amazing mullets – if not the ability to wow a Los Vegas audience. Things are going OK for the duo until their ticket sales plummet after new magician Steve Gray (Jim Carrey) bursts onto the scene and makes their act seem old in comparison.
Highlights from the trailer include Gray sleeping on hot coals and attempting not to use the restroom for 12 days. Wonderstone, meanwhile, attempts to live in a box suspended above the city for a week, but loses faith after just 20 minutes.
The Warner Bros. film from director Don Scardino also stars Olivia Wilde, James Gandolfini, Alan Arkin and Jay Mohr. It’s slated for a March 15, 2013 release.
We will post video of the trailer as soon as it’s made available, but for now you can watch it on Apple Trailers.
