Well, the apocalypse of stupidity swirling about 12/21/12 has come to naught, so that means there will be movies to watch in 2013.
In a switch (for me), this trailer for the new comedy The Incredible Burt Wonderstone looks kinda fun, and this clip actually contains a couple of funny lines — which is rare, as far as I’m concerned. I am rarely impressed by comedy trailers, so this one is worth a look.
I’m starting to get tired of Steve Carrel’s gallery of “funny because they’re totally oblivious” characters, but it looks like Burt could be a funny satire of those glossy Las Vegas magicians. And I like seeing Steve Buscemi back in a comedy role. Jim Carrey hasn’t done anything for me in years, so I’m hoping this will be a comeback of sorts for him. And Olivia Wilde ensures that any movie she’s in is never a total waste.
The Incredible Burt Wonderstone opens March 15.
