Comedy, like magic, is an art and a skill that is almost impossible for the average person to quantify or explain. Being able to consistently make people laugh is one of the most difficult tricks of all; it makes sawing a person in half seem like child's play (note to children: Do not try to saw anyone in half).

So what happens when you combine comedy and magic? You get the fantastic first trailer for "The Incredible Burt Wonderstone."

Here's the scoop: Steve Carell stars as Burt Wonderstone, a big time Las Vegas magician who, along with his partner (Steve Buscemi!), has been on top of the magic world for the past three decades. That all changes, though, when a new magician (Jim Carrey) with a flashier, more modern style shows up and horns in on the action, setting up the biggest showdown between magicians since Harry fought Voldemort.
