Steve Carell And Jim Carrey Star In The Incredible Burt Wonderstone (Trailer)

Steve Carell and Jim Carrey star in The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, a comedy about a magician desperate to increase his public profile (and ticket sales) in an ever-changing world and resorting to a few stunts that might just look a little familiar, if you’re at all familiar with the work of David Blaine. A guerrilla street magician starts to steal Burt’s thunder and he turns to his childhood idol, to remind himself of why he loved magic so much in the first place.

The trailer traces Carell and Buscemi from their childhood beginnings in the world of magic, through their ailing career. Along comes a bleach-blonde Jim Carrey, who performs ‘magic’ of a different kind… such as holding his urine for 12 days. Wonderstone knows that he’s going to have to up his game to keep up but the best he comes up with in this sneak preview is holding his poop in.

The movie is directed by Don Scardino, a man best known for his work on TV comedy shows such as 30 Rock and 2 Broke Girls. The screenwriters include John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein, who have comedy pedigree after working on Horrible Bosses together. Also starring are Olivia Wilde, Steve Buscemi, Alan Arkin and James Gandolfini. On paper, it has the potential to be a comedy classic.
