Burt Wonderstone

First looks at films by way of photographic stills tend to be dry affairs that are nearly always impossible to contextualize (“look, there is someone standing there, next to someone else, can’t wait for this movie!”), but every so often, they prove to be actually exciting little bits of marketing.

Like this first look at The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, starring Steve Carell, Steve Buscemi, and apparently an old school Glamour Shots studio. This photo is glorious, and it’s the first thing that’s gotten me genuinely excited for the film, which stars Carell and Buscemi as Las Vegas’ most successful magician duo, a duo who are threatened by their imploding friendship and Jim Carrey‘s rising star rival magician.

Check out the second still after the break, but be warned, it contains none of the majesty of that one up top (though Carrey does appear in this one, looking a lot like Cris Angel).
