In The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, Steve Carell and Steve Buscemi play a pair of Vegas magicians with great hair and outlandish outfits. They have to face off against the competition from a rockstar competitor played by Jim Carrey, whose “magic” amounts to a series of visceral physical stunts. So basically, think Siegried & Roy vs. Criss Angel Mindfreak.
Between Burt Wonderstone and Now You See Me, Hollywood is really hitting this magic craze. Can a reboot of Magic’s Biggest Secrets Finally Revealed be far behind? (But seriously: How did they make a tank disappear?) Watch the trailer:
Bruce, almighty, it’s great to see Carell and Carrey together again!
If that movie is any guide, we can wager that the Burt Wonderstone sequel will be about Buscemi’s character.
