Warner Bros have released the first footage of The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, the magician comedy film from 30 Rock director Don Scardino. The film stars Steve Carell as the eponymous character, a magician in Las Vegas whose relationship with his partner Anton Marvelton (Steve Buscemi) comes to an end after street magician Steve Gray (Jim Carrey) upstages the duo.
The clip shows Carell and Carrey at odds in a bar, and is full of the humour that you would expect from the often-comedic actors. This isn’t the first time Carrey and Carell have been at odds (see: Bruce Almighty), and it’ll be interesting to see how Carrey’s take on modern take street magicians like David Blaine, Criss Angel and Dynamo fits into the film.
The film opens in UK cinemas on 15 March 2013, also stars Olivia Wilde, Alan Arkin, James Gandolfini and Gillian Jacobs.
