The Incredible Burt Wonderstone (2013)
The Incredible Burt Wonderstone SynopsisSuperstar magicians Burt Wonderstone (Steve Carell) and Anton Marvelton (Steve Buscemi) have ruled the Las Vegas strip for years, raking in millions with illusions as big as Burt's growing ego. But lately the duo's greatest deception is their public friendship, while secretly they've grown to loathe each other.
Facing cutthroat competition from guerilla street magician Steve Gray (Jim Carrey), whose cult following surges with each outrageous stunt, even their show looks stale. But there's still a chance Burt and Anton can save the act—both onstage and off—if Burt can get back in touch with what made him love magic in the first place.

The Incredible Burt Wonderstone Will Appear On Blu-ray And DVD In June
If you haven’t caught the film, yet, it’s still playing in some theaters, but if you are just waiting for the home entertainment release, you’ll be able to purchase the film beginning on June 25. Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem as if Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will be putting together an early digital release for the flick, which means Blu-ray copies, DVD copies, and digital downloads will be available simultaneously.

Steve Carell's Tina Fey Reunion Is Next, While Musical Doc Adaptation Dies Out
The comedian’s slate is a mixed bag of surefire hits, Oscar hopefuls and dead projects … like Of All the Things. A feature version of a musical documentary centered around songwriter and producer Dennis Lambert – who worked with the Four Tops and Dusty Springfield – has been unplugged after years of development.

Weekend Box Office: Nothing Magical About Burt Wonderstone
Neither The Call nor The Incredible Burt Wonderstone saw much love from critics and audiences didn't offer much more support at the box office this weekend.

The Call Surprises The Incredible Burt Wonderstone For #2 At Weekend Box Office
Going into this weekend there was no real doubt that any of the new releases would be able to unseat Oz The Great And Powerful, the mammoth Disney release still making tons of money all over the globe. What's surprised everyone, though, is which movie came in second place. Besting the splashy studio comedy The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, the Halle Berry-led thriller The Call made $6.2 million on Friday, good enough for a (distant) second place behind Oz

Tattoos, Vegas Crowds And Rodney Dangerfield: Jim Carrey And Steve Carell Talk Burt Wonderstone
“I think magicians are a lot more arrogant,” Carrey said. “That’s what bothered me about magicians growing up. I was always fascinated by it growing up, they’re kind of like, ‘Abracadabra, you’re an idiot!’ They don’t let you in on the joke. Comedians are in on the joke, unless you’re Andy Kaufman.”

The Incredible Burt Wonderstone Giveaway: Win A Magic Kit, A Beer Cooler, And Much More
When you take a trip to Vegas you're pretty much required to catch a big, probably cheesy magic act. Sure, the likes of David Blaine and Mystery have made magic a bit cooler over the years, but let's face it-- when we think of big magic shows, we still think of crazy wigs, sparkly suits, and the kind of showmanship you just can't get outside of Vegas

Experience The Incredible Burt Wonderstone's Bed Bouncing Skills In New Game
It presumably won’t take any amount of elaborately constructed mirrors or intentional distraction to make The Incredible Burt Wonderstone a runaway hit. It’s directed by Don Scardino, a television veteran with who helmed a season and a half of 30 Rock throughout its run. Stars Steve Carrell and Jim Carrey are playing over-the-top comedic roles that still feel atypical to what we normally see them doing

Steve Carell And Steve Buscemi Enchant In Incredible Burt Wonderstone Promo
This tongue-in-cheek trailer features Steve Carell and Steve Buscemi as Las Vegas magicians Burt Wonderstone and Anton Marvelton at the high point of the dynamic duo's career. But that has passed. Nowadays, audiences want something new and strange. Wonderstone and Marvelton are playing to dwindling crowds while a street performer (Jim Carrey) steals their thunder with bizarre fetes and grungy goth fashion sense.

Olivia Wilde Dreams Big On The Set Of The Incredible Burt Wonderstone

Making Magic On The Set Of The Incredible Burt Wonderstone
Just a little over a year ago I drove out to the Wadsworth Theater in Los Angeles, CA where I joined a small group of other film journalists to visit the set of then in-production comedy, where we had the pleasure of not only watching the production in action, but also talking to stars Steve Carell, Olivia Wilde and Steve Buscemi, as well as director Don Scardino and producer Chris Bender.

Steve Carell And Jim Carrey Channel Siegfried And Roy In New Burt Wonderstone Poster
Don Scardino’s The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, a Las Vegas-based magician comedy, co-stars Steve Carell, Jim Carrey and Steve Buscemi … though you’d never guess that based on the first official poster, because the three men look nothing like themselves. Which is probably great, because the further this movie drifts of the path of the safe and conventional, the better it will be for all of us!

Based on a screenplay by John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein (Horrible Bosses), the movie centers on a long-time magician named Burt Wonderstone (Carell) who remains an egotistical, selfish, jaded diva despite his waning fame. Unable to take any more abuse, Anton Marvelton (Buscemi), Wonderstone’s partner from the beginning...

Steve Carell has been focusing on his movie career ever since he left the cast of The Office and it looks like 2013 should be his boom year.

Community's Gillian Jacobs Joins Steve Carell In The Incredible Burt Wonderstone
Since it was put on perpetual hiatus, many people are experiencing a serious case of Community withdrawal but thankfully, this week we got a double dose of Gillian Jacobs. The actress was last seen kissing Keira Knightley and Steve Carell in the trailer for Seeking A Friend For The End Of The World and, well, it must have been something because Jacobs just joined Carell in The Incredible Burt Wonderstone for a role even more intimate.

Jay Mohr Joins The Ever-Expanding Cast Of Burt Wonderstone
Jay Mohr gets stuck doing a lot of crap. While he does have the occational gem on his resume, like the cancelled-too-soon TV show Action, Go, and Jerry Maguire, most of his career has been spent doing crappy movies and short-lived sitcoms. He has talent but rarely gets the opportunity to show it off. Hopefully Burt Wonderstone can do something to buck that trend.

Brad Garrett May Join Carell, Carrey, Gandolfini And Buscemi In Burt Wonderstone
Burt Wonderstone is already looking like a movie with enough magical star-power to lift it off the ground. With Steve Carell set to star, and Jim Carrey, James Gandolfini and Steve Buscemi also attached, not to mention Olivia Wilde, the cast of New Line's magician comedy is already top notch. Factor Brad Garrett into the equation and there may even more reason to speculate over whether this movie could manage to live up to the sum of its parts.

Deadline reports that Olivia Wilde, Michelle Monaghan, Judy Greer, Sarah Silverman and Jessia Biel are in the running to fill out the comedic triangle, though we’re not sure yet what role the actress would play in director Don Scardino’s film. But depending on which actress you choose, you’re going to get a specific tone that could take Wonderstone in completely different directions.

Jason Reitman Performing Magic With Burt Wonderstone Script
Reitman will be the fourth writer to get his hands on the script, which has already been in the hands of John Frances Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, as well as original scribbler Charles Kultgen. As Reitman gives it his seal of approval, casting is feverish for someone to star across from Carell in the role of the rival magician. Wanna bet it’ll be Sacha Baron Cohen? More on Burt Wonderstone as the film nears production.

Steve Carell's Burt Wonderstone Gets A Director
We are living in tough times, my friends. With Michael Scott leaving The Office, we no longer have a means of seeing new Steve Carell material every week. Seeing as Carell is one of the most likable leading men going at the moment, what's important to remember is that not being on the show will allow him to do a lot more movies, and now one of his upcoming projects has taken a huge step forward.
