Now courtesy of the Lebanese Movie Guide, we have a brand new image from the film showing British star Idris Elba (Luther, Thor) and Rinko Kikuchi (The Brothers Bloom, 47 Ronin)...
When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity’s resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju. On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn »

New Line Cinema has released the first trailer for The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, a new comedy from director Don Scardino (30 Rock) and screenwriters John Francis Daley and Jonathan M Goldenstein (Horrible Bosses), which sees Steve Carell (The Office) and Steve Buscemi's (Boardwalk Empire) status as the kings of the Las Vegas magic scene coming under threat from a Criss Angel-like street performer played by Jim Carrey (Dumb and Dumber).
Take a look at the synopsis and check out the trailer below...
"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.

We're a tad late on this one but a lot of the Twitch staff are traveling this weekend or spending time with their families in preparation for the holidays. Except me it seems.

Harry Potter might be finished, but that doesn’t mean magic’s vanished from the big screen. Warner Bros.’ upcoming dueling magician comedy The Incredible Burt Wonderstone promises to be a laugh riot, at least judging from the trailer that was released yesterday.
Starring Steve Carell as the title character, the film chronicles a professional magician fighting to stay relevant against a hip, new street magician, Steve Gray (Jim Carrey). Professional magicians have always been a point of ridicule, especially since the character Gob on the cult favorite Arrested Development. The profession makes for an easy target, one that’s sure to bring countless laughs throughout the film.
Rounding out the cast are Steve Buschemi, who plays Anton Marvelton, Wonderstone’s assistant; Alan Arkin, who portrays Wonderstone’s childhood magician hero Rance Holloway; and Olivia Wilde, who plays Jane. With such a hilarious cast, the movie promises a good time, »

Last month we saw the first trailer for Louis Leterrier's magician heist movie Now You See Me and now this week Hollywood's new obsession with magic continues with the first look at the upcoming comedy The Incredible Burt Wonderstone. The movie stars Steve Carell as Burt Wonderstone, a famous veteran magician who has been performing in Vegas for years with his partner Anton Marvelton (Steve Buscemi). Recently, however, their act is starting to be threatened by hip street magician Steve Gray (Jim Carrey), forcing them to return to their roots and remember what made them love magic in the first place. The movie is directed by Don Scardino, a long-time TV director who has worked on such shows as Cosby, Law & Order and 30 Rock. What is probably a bigger selling point for most people, however, is the fact that the script was written by John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, »
A few days ago, we got our first look at Steve Carell and Steve Buscemi playing Vegas magicians (with fake-bake tans and blonde mullets) in The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, the new comedy from Horrible Bosses co-screenwriters John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein and director Don Scardino (30 Rock). But does the movie have anything to offer, beyond the hilarity of seeing those lovable character actors dress up in sparkly burgundy magician costumes?
Well, the Incredible Burton Wonderstone trailer is now online – and although it may not go down as the funniest preview of the season, it suggests there is more to this flick than a one-joke premise (warning: if you’re sick of Lmfao’s “Sexy and I Know It” popping up in trailers, you might want to take a pass on this one).
Here is the official synopsis for The Incredible Burton Wonderstone:

Earlier this year I got to visit the set The Incredible Burt Wonderstone with a few other online reporters while the production was filming at the Wadsworth Theater here in Los Angeles. Directed by Don Scardino (whose directed almost forty episodes of 30 Rock) and written by Horrible Bosses screenwriters John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, the film stars Steve Carell as a magician whose relationship with his partner (Steve Buscemi) becomes strained after the arrival of a hipper illusionist (Jim Carrey). Burt Wonderstone also stars Olivia Wilde, Alan Arkin, James Gandolfini, Jay Mohr, Michael Bully Herbig and a lot of real life magicians, many of whom were the inspirations for the film. While on set we got to watch a great scene featuring Carell and Buscemi wearing some outrageous costumes, conduct interviews with a lot of the cast, and we learned a lot about the film. As a fan of the cast and the filmmakers, »

The Incredible Burt Wonderstone has one of the biggest potentials of any comedy next year. Led by Jim Carrey and Steve Carell, reunited following the success of Bruce Almighty, the film is due out in Spring 2013, and we can’t wait to see how it unfolds.
With only a few months to go before it arrives on the big screen, USA Today have debuted the first two official images from the film, giving us a brilliant look at its leading cast.
The official full synopsis is being kept under wraps, but we know that Carell stars as the eponymous Burt Wonderstone, part of a two-man magician act in Vegas. After his partner (Buscemi) leaves him, he finds himself having to compete with a hot new act (Carrey) and has to convince his partner to come back to the stage.
Starring alongside Carrey and Carell is an excellent cast, headed up by Olivia Wilde, »

I never achieved mullet-ness in all of my years. It’s pretty fantastic, isn’t it? There is actually a multitude of scintillating looks that I rock in this movie. »

New images have been released for the comedies The Incredible Burt Wonderstone and Last Vegas. Wonderstone stars Steve Carell as the eponymous magician whose relationship with his partner (Steve Buscemi) becomes strained after the arrival of a hipper illusionist (Jim Carrey). The script comes from Horrible Bosses screenwriters John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein so I've got high hopes. As for Last Vegas (a.k.a. "The Hangover with old guys"), the movie centers on four old friends (played by Michael Douglas, Robert De Niro, Kevin Kline, and Morgan Freeman) who decide to throw a Las Vegas bachelor party for the only one of them who has remained single. Hit the jump to check out the images. The Incredible Burt Wonderstone opens March 15, 2013. Last Vegas opens December 20, 2013. Via USA Today: Via The Lebanese Cinema Movie Guide: »

Set for release next year, here’s the latest trailer for the film courtesy of Apple.
Unlimited funds have allowed Diana (McCarthy) to live it up on the outskirts of Miami, where the queen of retail buys whatever strikes her fancy. There’s only one glitch: The ID she’s using to finance these sprees reads “Sandy Bigelow Patterson” … and it belongs to an accounts rep (Bateman) who lives halfway across the U.S. With only one week to hunt down the con artist before his world implodes, the real Sandy Bigelow Patterson heads »

A dog, a screenwriter and the criminal underworld get entangled in Seven Psychopaths, which scored high points with critics and moviegoers when it was in theaters.
The comedy movie stars Colin Farrell (Horrible Bosses) as Marty, a struggling screenwriter in Los Angeles who just needs some focus and inspiration to finish his screenplay. His focus gets a little astray, however, when he inadvertantly gets entangled with the criminal underworld after his unamployed actor best friend (Sam Rockwell, Conviction) and his partner in crime (Christopher Walken, Catch Me If You Can) kidnap a gangster’s (Woody Harrelson, The Hunger Games) beloved Shih Tzu.

Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses) directs the February comedy/crime flick Identity Thief, which teams up Jason Bateman (Arrested Development) and Melissa McCarthy (Bridemaids) as a very odd couple: a straight-laced businessman and the outrageous criminal who empties his bank account after stealing his identity.
The first Identity Thief trailer emphasizes the contrast between Bateman as the unwitting schmo and McCarthy’s cartoonish, frizzled-haired law-breaker. Today, we have a new theatrical promo that dives deeper into the plot and better accounts for the madness that ensues when these two people’s worlds collide.
All things considered, this new preview is an improvement on its predecessor. For starters, it provides an actual explanation as to why Bateman treks across the U.S. in order to capture McCarthy on his own. Moreover, introducing Genesis Rodriguez (Man on a Ledge, The ...

Next year is shaping up to be the Year of Melissa McCarthy. Two years after her scene-stealing role in Bridesmaids, the Mike & Molly star is lined up for two buddy comedies: The Heat with Sandra Bullock and Identity Thief with Jason Bateman. In the newest trailer for the latter, we get to see much more of the duo in Planes, Trains, and Automobiles mode, as Bateman’s mild-mannered Colorado dad drags the outrageous woman who’s stolen his identity and maxed out his credit cards across the country in order to clear his sullied name.
There’s lots of footage overlap from the first trailer, »
