Warner Bros. has released the first trailer for the upcoming comedy The Incredible Burt WonderstoneSteve Carell stars 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).  I can’t even imagine a universe where Carell and Buscemi are anything less than great as a comedy team, well-suited to play corny, old-school magicians.  Likewise, Carrey is good get to play the intense adversary, and writers Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley have some funny stunts lined up for his Criss Angel doppleganger: “For twelve days he’s held. His. Urine.”  Yet judging by the trailer-closing joke, Alan Arkin may just steal the show as the elder magician who inspired Burt.

Olivia Wilde, James Gandolfini, and Jay Mohr also star.  Directed by Don Scardino, The Incredible Burt Wonderstone opens March 15, 2013.  Watch the trailer after the jump.

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 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.
