Exclusive: New Burt Wonderstone Poster

An “abracatastic” new poster for upcoming magical comedy ‘The Incredible Burt Wonderstone’ has arrived, with Steve Carell, Steve Buscemi and Jim Carrey getting their showmanship on.

Directed by Don Scardino, the film follows past-it Vegas magician Burt Wonderstone, played by Carell, as he attempts to reunite with former partner Anton Marvelton (Buscemi) when Carrey’s sneaky street magician, Steve Gray, starts to overshadow him.

Wonderstone himself is partly based on flamboyant tiger-friendly magicians Siegfried & Roy, whilst Carrey’s character was described by Scardino as “If David Blaine and Criss Angel had a child.” Horrific.
