New Line Cinema has released the first two photos from their new film The Incredible Burt Wonderstone. The one above gives us out first look at Steve Carell and Steve Buscemi as hilarious looking magicians. The one below also features Jim Carrey. This sounds like it could be a really fun comedy.
The story follows superstar magicians Burt Wonderstone (Carell) and Anton Marvelton (Buscemi) who 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 guerrilla street magician Steve Gray (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.
Carrey had this to say in a interview with USA Today,
This is a first, even in real life. I never achieved mullet-ness in all of my years. It's pretty fantastic, isn't it? There is actually a multitude of scintillating looks that I rock in this movie. From the mullet to the lion's mane to a frosted coif.
Director Don Scardino added, "This is definitely a wig picture. The hair budget was killer. Jim Carrey wears a really outrageous one."
The movie also stars Olivia Wilde, Alan Arkin and James Gandolfini. It will be released in theaters on March 15th, 2013. Stay tuned because the first trailer should be released some time this week.
