The Incredible Burt Wonderstone is a little over a week away from hitting theaters, and Warner Bros. has released a new promo for the film. Done in the style of an ad for Bally’s Casino, it’s a cute showcase of washed-up magicians Burt Wonderstone (Steve Carell) and Anton Marvelton (Steve Buscemi). In the film, the duo’s partnership is tested when they’re faced with hot new magician, Steve Gray (Jim Carrey).
Hit the jump to check out the promo, and come back tomorrow night when I’ll have my review of the film after seeing it at SXSW. The movie also stars Olivia Wilde, James Gandolfini, and Alan Arkin. The Incredible Burt Wonderstone opens March 15th.

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 followingsurges 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.
