Star Parents Shine at the "Burt Wonderstone" Premiere! (Photos)


A magical night in every sense of the word!

The L.A. premiere of The Incredible Burt Wonderstone was attended by both stars who make movie magic and one celeb who’s been dazzling audiences with stage magic for decades.

The film, which hits screens nationwide on Friday, tells the story of a splashy Vegas magician (Steve Carell) whose reputation and audience are being lost to a Criss Angel/David Blaine-type showman (Jim Carrey) who specializes in daring personal stunts. To reclaim his place at the top of the magic heap, he has to convince his old partner (Steve Buscemi) to rejoin him and revive their old act.

See who came to witness the magic…
