Steve Carell, Steve Buscemi, Jim Carrey, and Olivia Wilde star in the film “The Incredible Burt Wonderstone,” a comedy which follows a magician duo Burt Wonderstone and Anton Marvelton (Carell and Buscemi), who are struggling to stay relevant as an up-and-coming conjurer (Carrey) wows the world with his shocking tricks.

Wilde plays magician's assistant Jane, while actor Alan Arkin co-stars as Rance Holloway, the magician who convinced Wonderstone to pursue the same career.

The movie is scheduled to come out on March 15.

“Burt” will be Carell’s first comedy since 2011’s “Crazy, Stupid, Love.” after starring in the 2012 dramas “Hope Springs” and “Seeking a Friend for the End of the World.” Buscemi comes from starring on HBO’s series “Boardwalk Empire,” which aired its season three finale in December, as well as appearing in the 2012 film adaptation of Jack Kerouac’s book “On the Road.”
