The Incredible Burt Wonderstone
Finally, here's the official trailer to the upcoming movie: "The Incredible Burt Wonderstone." The film stars Jim Carrey, Steve Carell Steve Buscemi and Olivia Wilde. After breaking up with his longtime stage partner, a famous but jaded Vegas magician fights for relevance when a new, "hip" street magician appears on the scene," says the trailer's description. From the trailer, it appears that Carell is playing a Siegfried style magician (of Siegfried and Roy), and Carrey plays a competing Criss Angel-style performer. In any event, it looks funny and you can watch the trailer here.

Paul Vigil
Is it the best magic show on the Las Vegas strip? I've been hearing lots of raves about Paul Vigil's show at The Mirage's "King Ink" (a lounge/tattoo parlor). "We're going to re-introduce you to the finest entertainment deal on the strip," says a recent story. "Paul Vigil performs only one hour a week, to a very limited audience and doesn't charge a dime. It's free. No ticket, no cover and no hard sell to even buy a drink." You can read the story here.

Is Dynamo Assisting His Favorite Football Team?
After a recent upset where Bradford defeated Arsenal in the League Cup, a newspaper hypothesizes that Dynamo, a huge fan, may have played a role."Magician Dynamo has been astonishing audiences and stars around the world with his magic tricks," says the story. "But he could've pulled off the biggest one of career willing his hometown club Bradford to a win against Arsenal." You can read about it here.
