With director Don Scardino’s (30 Rock) magician comedy The Incredible Burt Wonderstone opening March 15, Warner Bros. has provided us with 10 clips. The film stars Steve Carell as a Vegas magician whose relationship with his partner (Steve Buscemi) becomes strained as the two start getting upstaged by a hipper illusionist (Jim Carrey). The comedy is set to open SXSW 2013, and that’s a huge vote of confidence for the film’s quality.
Hit the jump to check out the clips. Finally, if you missed any of my set visit coverage, here are my on set interviews with Steve Carell, Olivia Wilde, Steve Buscemi, director Don Scardino, and producer Chris Bender.
Here’s the official synopsis for The Incredible Burt Wonderstone:
Superstar magicians Burt Wonderstone (Steve Carell) and Anton Marvelton (Steve Buscemi) 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 guerilla street magician Steve Gray (Jim Carrey), whose cult following surges with each outrageous stunt, even their show is starting to look stale. But there’s still a chance Burt and Anton can save the act—both onstage and off—if only Burt can get back in touch with what made him love magic in the first place.
