Steve Carell's 'Burt Wonderstone,' Hugh Jackman's 'Prisoners' Set Release Dates
UPDATED: Warner Bros. also has decided to give Vera Farmiga-Patrick Wilson horror pic "The Conjuring" a high-profile summer release.
Warner Bros.' star-studded magician comedy The Incredible Burt Wonderstone -- pairing Steve Carell with Jim Carrey and Steve Buscemi -- will open in theaters on March 15, 2013.
Burt Wonderstone, directed by Don Scardino, also stars Olivia Wilde, James Gandolfini, Alan Arkin and Jay Mohr. In the film, Carell and Buscemi play superstar magicians who rule the Las Vegas strip -- until a guerilla street magician, played by Carrey, makes their acts look stale.
The studio dated two other high-profile 2013 movies, including Hugh Jackman-Melissa Leo drama Prisoners and Jason Sudeikis-Jennifer Aniston starrer We're the Millers.
In a fourth move, New Line and Warners has decided to give James Wan's Vera Farmiga-Patrick Wilson horror pic The Conjuring a high-profile summer release following glowing test screenings. The film, originally set to open Jan. 25, will now roll out July 19, 2013.
The Conjuring, also starring Ron Livingston and Lili Taylor, is based on a true story and follows paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren as they help a terrorized family living in a secluded farmhouse.
We're the Millers is also getting the summer treatment, albeit during the quieter August stretch. About a pot dealer who goes big-time, the comedy also stars Ed Helms, Will Poutler and Emma Roberts. The pic, directed by Rawson Thurber, goes up against the Robocop remake.
Prisoners, fully financed and produced by Alcon Entertainment, is considered an awards contender and will open Sept. 20, 2013. Directed by Denis Villeneuve, the film stars Jackman as a father-turned-vigilante who kidnaps the man he suspects is behind the disappearance of his 8-year-old daughter and her best friend. Warners is distributing per its deal with Alcon.
