The Incredible Burt Wonderstone follows longtime Las Vegas favorite, magician Burt Wonderstone (Steve Carell), and his sidekick, Anton Lovecraft (Steve Buscemi), who have allowed their show to grow stale, while up-and-coming Steve Gray (Jim Carrey), is stealing the limelight. Entitled, cynical and jaded, Burt finds himself out of a job and broke, while Anton heads to Cambodia to spread the joy of magic to hungry villagers. It takes Burt's original mentor, Rance Hanson (Alan Arkin), to talk sense into glum Burt, as well as a good kick in the keester by his adoring assistant, Jane (Olivia Wilde), to get Burt on track – back doing magic with all the zeal and passion that compelled him as a youngster.
The film features the visual effects work of Adelaide-based Rising Sun Pictures. The company is currently working on The Wolverine and also contributed to the Oscar-nominated Prometheus.
The Incredible Burt Wonderstone is released in Australian cinemas on March 14.
