With the recent tragic passing of actor James Gandolfini,‭ ‬fans can now remember the actor by seeing him in one of his last roles as the casino owning Doug Munny in this year‭ ‬“The Incredible Burt Wonderstone‭"‬,‭ ‬which‭ ‬was released on Blu-Ray today.‭ ‬Along with James,‭ ‬veteran comedic actors Jim Carrey‭ (‬street magician Steve Gray‭)‬,‭ ‬Steve Carell‭ (‬Burt Wonderstone‭)‬,‭ ‬Steve Buscemi‭ (‬Anton Marvelton‭)‬,‭ ‬and Olivia Wilde‭ (‬Jane‭) ‬all give a good performance in one of this years biggest films.‭ ‬Honestly though I feel like the comedy performance award for this film should go to Alan Arkin who played Rance Holloway.‭ ‬There is something about Alan‭’‬s facial expressions and comedic timing that I find unbelievably hysterical.‭

I really was hoping to see a great Jim Carrey performance but was a little disappointed.‭ ‬It could have just been the role he played but I didn‭’‬t find him particularly funny in the film.‭ ‬Steve Carrel was amazing and I am always shocked about how much you can love or hate the characters Steve plays.‭ ‬And as always an Olivia Wilde sighting never hurts anyone‭!

In the film,‭ ‬Burt Wonderstone is on top of the world as its most famous magician.‭ ‬With the fame though comes Burt‭’‬s severe egotism‭ ‬and in-turn more lackluster performances.‭ ‬With the new shocking street magic of Steve Gray taking away his audience,‭ ‬Burt‭’‬s world falls apart and he finds himself searching for why he started magic in the first place.‭ ‬With the help of Jane and his longtime partner Anton,‭ ‬the trio sets to make an illusion the likes of nothing ever done before.

This film‭ ‬is released on Blu-Ray on June‭ ‬25th.‭ ‬Check it out today.
