The LA premiere for 'The Incredible Burt Wonderstone' took place on Monday (March 11th 2013) and as well as the starring cast, saw many other famous faces.

As well as leading stars Steve Carell and Steve Buscemi, who play the title character and his partner Anton Marvelton respectively, we see their magic rival Steve Gray played by Jim Carrey as well as their beautiful assistant Jane played by Olivia Wilde on the red carpet. Primetime Emmy winning director of the movie Don Scardino, who has previously worked on American comedy series '30 Rock', made his appearance at the premiere held at the TCL Chinese Theatre alongside screenwriters John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein who have worked together on a variety of projects including 'Horrible Bosses', an episode of 'Bones' and a short film called 'Audio Tour'. Legendary illusionist David Copperfield was also spotted on the red carpet; he makes a cameo appearance on the movie and was also a key figure in developing some of the visual trickery performed by the onscreen magicians. Young versions of main characters Burt Wonderstone and Anton Marvelton were also snapped, played by Mason Cook and Luke Vanek respectively, as well as their character's biggest hero Rance Holloway played by Alan Arkin.

The Incredible Burt Wonderstone Trailer


Burt Wonderstone wanted to be a superstar magician ever since he was a young boy watching his idol Rance Holloway perform tricks on TV. Enlisting his best friend Anton Marvelton as his partner, the pair became stars beyond their wildest dreams wowing audiences in Las Vegas for the best part of 30 years. However, after a while being the biggest magic stars in America, ticket sales begin to drop and the pair find themselves drifting apart from each other. It doesn't help that a young, charismatic new street magician called Steve Gray has arrived on the scene becoming a massive hit among young magic fans. After Burt and Anton embark on a new stunt, attempting to stay suspended in a box with each other, they realise that their friendship is long forgotten and Anton moves abroad. Burt must meet with his hero Rance and reconnect with what made him love magic in the first place in order to reunite with his friend once more.

'The Incredible Burt Wonderstone' is a hilarious new comedy directed by Don Scardino ('30 Rock') and written by John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein ('Horrible Bosses'), and Chad Kultgen ('Southern Discomfort', 'Waiting to Die'). It is set for release in UK cinemas from March 15th 2013.

Starring: Steve Carell, Jim Carrey, Olivia Wilde, Steve Buscemi, Alan Arkin, James Gandolfini, Gillian Jacobs, Zachary Gordon, Brad Garrett, Melissa Ordway, Jay Mohr, John Lewis, Freedom, David Copperfield, Mark Engelhardt, TJ Myers,

Cruising Review


Very Good
Were it not set in the gay underworld of its era, 1980's Cruising would be a largely unremarkable film. But provocateur William Friedkin did set it in this underworld -- a seedy, sex-filled shocker than must have had audiences in tears -- and thus it has become a cult classic, almost notorious, really.

The story is, by and large, traditional serial killer fare: Someone is stabbing gay men to death, often in lewd situations. The NYPD captain (Paul Sorvino) sends in Steve Burns (Al Pacino) undercover to ferret out the killer. The straight-edge Steve learns all about gay culture, in which pocket to put bandanas to indicate your proclivities, and so on. But by and large he's just supposed to "go out there and find the killer." But the undercover activity takes its toll on his psyche, most notably in his (non-gay) relationship with Nancy (Karen Allen, virtually the only woman in the film at all).

Squirm Review


Bad
A forgotten horror film -- and for good reason. Discontent with the murderous ants, fish, and flies of its era, here come killer worms, driven to a carnivorous frenzy by a downed power line. It all comes to a head when city slicker Don Scardino comes to visit his kin in backwoods somewhere... including redhead Patricia Pearcy, who is introduced to us in the shower (only later to reprise the scene). Come to think of it, that's really the only thing in the film worth seeing.

He Knows You're Alone Review


Bad
He may know you're alone, but I know you're bored silly. Frankly, this is one of the least terrifying horror films ever, without a single moment of even the slightest thrill or scare. (Plot: Stalker hunts bride-to-be.) The only reason anyone even knows this movie exists is because it is Tom Hanks's screen debut, appearing in a small supporting role. Avoid at all costs unless you're doing a researchpaper on Hanks's early career.
