The Incredible Burt Wonderstone

It's been a few years since The Prestige and The Illusionist brought magic to the box office in 2006, but we're about to get a new dose of prestidigitation when The Incredible Burt Wonderstone hits theaters next Friday. In anticipation of the film's release, Warner Bros. has released a new fake ad for Balley's Resort and Casino featuring magicians Burt Wonderstone (Steve Carell) and Anton Marvelton (Steve Buscemi) doing some ridiculous tricks and having a female audience member "feel the heat of their magical wands." Complete with cheesy voiceover, this does a good job of capturing the same outdated tone as their show.

Here's the new fake casino ad for The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, originally via Apple:

After breaking up with his longtime stage partner, a famous but jaded Las Vegas magician named Burt Wonderstone (Carell) fights for relevance when a new, hip street magician (Carrey) appears on the scene.

The Incredible Burt Wonderstone is directed by Emmy-winning filmmaker Don Scardino, of mostly TV work previously including "30 Rock", "Big Lake", "Law & Order", "Hope & Faith" and "Cosby". The original screenplay was co-written by John Francis Daley & Jonathan M. Goldstein (both of the Horrible Bosses script, and the upcoming Cloudy 2: Revenge of the Leftovers) from a story by Daley, Goldstein and Chad Kultgen. Warner Bros produced and is releasing Burt Wonderstone in theaters starting March 15th, 2013.
