“The Incredible Burt Wonderston” finally has a release date scheduled for this March 15. Along with that release date there is a trailer available to tease you about the magician comedy. Here’s the premise of the movie:
Burt Wonderstone (Carell) and Anton Marvelton (Buscemi) are a successful magic act in Las Vegas. Their partnership comes to an end when Anton is injured by Burt during their hotbox trick, and Anton moves to the Far East. When Burt is overshadowed by popular street magician Steve Gray (Carrey), he must convince Anton to return to the act to regain his standing by all means necessary.
Magic and Las Vegas are a perfect fit. Too bad I don’t like magic shows. After watching the trailer below I think that Anton Marvelton (Steve Buscemi) and Olivia Wilde (just because she’s Olivia Wilde) may be the highlights of “The Incredible Burt Wonderston” for me.
Finishing the production of this movie was quick. You may remember that this movie was filmed all over Las Vegas last summer. Even though I don’t watch too many movies any movie based in Vegas has my interest and there is a lot of Las Vegas eye candy in this trailer.
I don’t think I’ll head to a movie theater to see “The Incredible Burt Wonderstone” but it doesn’t seem bad. It just doesn’t seem great. The trailer almost seems as if this is a movie destined to be more popular on Netflix or on TBS on a random Sunday afternoon.
