Today we have an international trailer for "The Incredible Burt Wonderstone" comedy, starring Steve Carell, Jim Carrey, Steve Buscemi, Olivia Wilde, James Gandolfini, Brad Garrett, Alan Arkin and Jay Mohr. Check it out below.
Plot: The story revolves around a Las Vegas magician, Burt Wonderstone (Carell), who breaks with his longtime stage partner (Buscemi) and finds himself upstaged by a rival hip street magician (Carrey) who is stealing his thunder.
The new movie is directed by Don Scardino ("30 Rock") and is set to hit theaters on March 15th.
Since there has been a serious lack of decent comedies coming out of the Hollywood machine this one looks not bad. And what a relief to see that Steve Buscemi has escaped the Adam Sandler comedy camp and branched out.

At first I thought, "Wow! Two funny guys in one movie! What could go wrong?!" and then I remembered DINNER WITH SCHMUCKS, and then I thought, "F******CK!!!"
And as if I didn't doubt this project enough, the interview of the director, helped. He was reported saying as actually switching the Carrell/ Carrey roles to show them against typecast of what the audience would usually see them in to show different sides/ abilities...
Really? Actually experimenting on a comedy? Doesn't this guy understand that people want to see this movies because OF THEIR ESTABLISHED STYLE OF COMEDY?! Anyway...good luck with that little experiment Mr. Wizard.
OR...maybe Carrey wanted to play second fiddle to reverse the BRUCE ALL MIGHTY roles. Carrell has that effect on actors. Ryan Gosling was reported saying he only did CRAZY, STUPID, LOVE because he wanted to work with Carrell...who knows?
