First Look at Steve Carell, Steve Buscemi, and Olivia Wilde in BURT WONDERSTONE

     January 11, 2012

Filming is currently underway on the comedy Burt Wonderstone starring Steve Carell, Jim Carrey, Steve Buscemi, Jay Mohr, James Gandolfini, and Olivia Wilde.  The story centers on a Las Vegas magician (Carell) who loses his partner and is then upstaged by a hipper magician (Carrey) doing dangerous and crowd-drawing tricks.  The first set photos from the movie show Carell’s eponymous character apparently trying to upstage his rival by aping David Blaine‘s boring non-magic.  The costumes and make-up look very “Vegas” and perhaps Wonderstone will actually try to escape from his predicament rather than sit there with people gazing up at what Chris Rock called “a trickless magician.”

Hit the jump to check out the set photos.  Burt Wonderstone is due out in 2013.

    A true test of the body is REAL magic.

    Setting things up to look like something they’re not is just trickery.

    Pull your head out of your ass.

      I agree. David Blaine has already established himself as a pretty damn good street magician. What he does now is try to push his body to extraordinary limits. While it’s not as showy as “magic”, it’s far more impressive.

        I agree with Matt Goldberg.

        Take that, Blaine. Your act shows discipline, talent and psychological stamina, three things that we can’t stand down at Collider. Why don’t you take your money, kudos and respect, and get out?

    awesome first look, i love all the actors involved. cant wait for this

    How about report on a movie without taking cheap shots at a person not even related to your story? David Blaine is an amazing magician on TOP of all the stunts he performs. He is very well respected in magician circles for his sleight of hand and trains his body like crazy for the stunts he does.
