The Incredible Burt Wonderstone Marketing Magic

The Incredible Burt Wonderstone is going to be an awful film. It's being to heavily marketed at the worst time to release films that it has to be. The new commercials keep playing up the fight between Steve Carrel and Jim Carrey as magicians, but if you were forced to sit through the trailer you'll realize the real story is going to be about Steve Carrel and Steve Buscemi as a team, breaking apart. So the real film is a non-gay Siegfried and Roy joke, years after that duo retired.

 I wonder if they'll be a tiger joke we haven't seen, but I'm sure they would have used it in the trailers by now.

If you watch any commercial for the film, you'll notice Buscemi isn't even in them, tricking you into believing the film is solely a Jim Carrey and Steve Carrel film, I wonder how many minutes Carrey will even be in the movie.
