We so wish Burt Wonderstone and Anton Marvelton performed nightly at Bally's. The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, a rival magicians comedy flick staring Steve Carell and Steve Buscemi warring against Jim Carrey, opens on March 15. And, the latest trailer is a mock-commercial for the Burt & Anton show at Bally's. And, we so wish this was a real show.
After desperately seeking the cast of the Hangover last year as they filmed 'Part III' around Vegas and then finding and stalking them (and stalking.. and stalking.. and, maybe, a smidge more), it's almost time to get our Hangover on once again.
Hangover Part III, being touted as the epic finale of the trilogy, will hit theaters Memorial Day Weekend and we're hoping it will be almost as good as the first. Almost, because we're just trying to keep it real. As long as it's better than Part II, we'll be stoked.

Has it really been almost a year since big-time film stars actually walked among us? No, not the cast of that Liberace movie or Hangover 3. But, "The Incredible Burt Wonderstone." Yes, in those far off innocent days of January 2012, Jim Carrey, Steve Carell, Steve Buscemi, Olivia Wilde and James Gandolfini were all over The Strip and downtown filming a madcap magicians comedy.
That's a wrap on the filming of Hangover 3 in Las Vegas. If it feels like the wolfpack left just as soon as it arrived, this Vegas stop was measured in weeks over months. It wasn't even three weeks ago that we started staking out filming locations. We barely got a chance to say hello and never had a chance to say goodbye to our newest friends. Did we say friends? Forget you saw that -- we didn't say friends. And, due to a piece of paper we signed with some legal mumbo jumbo and a Warner Brothers logo on it, we didn't say anything about any involvement in filming a movie codenamed "H3." And, we most certainly did not confirm being on set for the filming of Hangover 3 at any time. Whatsoever. Nope, we have no idea what you're talking about.
What we can say without fear of having our looney tunes clipped is that after filming in the desert, shooting scenes at Caesars Palace and shutting down the Strip before tying up downtown, the cameras and crew have reportedly left Las Vegas.

Zarkana is Cirque du Soleil's latest spectacle, but for fans wanting more Cirky Cirky and who can't wait for the King of Pop's Immortal tribute or those that just can't make it to Vegas soon enough, there's another opportunity to get soaked in Soleil right around the corner.
On December 21, the folks behind KA, LOVE
Viva Elvis and now Zarkana make the jump from stage to screen in a 3D spectacular movie. Because anything less than 3D just wouldn't be spectacular enough. Cirque brass has teamed up with the makers of Avatar and The Chronicles of Narnia (this one, not that one) to create Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away 3D.
The best friends that anyone could have are still hanging around Vegas and, after missing them by thismuch last week, let's just say that we're very happy right now. VERY.
We can't spill details right now 'cause you know the
studio guys want us to keep it on the DL (we're tight like that now), but follow the tweets below for more reveals as to just what you'll see on the big screen when the movie makes its debut in May 2013.
Hangover 3 filming continues. They built a make-shift strip club downtown. All the clubs here & they had to build one?lockerz.com/s/259548224— \m/ BEAR DOWN \m/ (@MetalBearsFan) November 7, 2012
In the desert. In downtown. At Caesars Palace. Over the last few days, Hangover 3 sightings have been harder to keep track of than Doug (or Teddy if you're more of a Hangover 2 fan). And, last night, a fourth location was added to the mix -- the airspace above the Las Vegas Strip.
While we were resting up after evading men in black in the desert and cruising around downtown Vegas, the elusive Hangover 3 cast showed up at Caesars Palace last night. Of course. So, we were forced to live vicariously via social media, finding the amazingly awesome Instagram of Mr. Chow posted above and reading tweets from people who not only saw filming on The Strip, but who (for at least one guy, anyway) managed to score a walk-on, too. (This is us green with envy.)

Finally, the wolfpack has come back to Las Vegas. After issuing an apology for tying up Southern California traffic, cast and crew of Hangover 3 moved up the I-15 for filming. And, since we're
certified stalkers dedicated disciples of fat Jesus, the past week was spent chasing the tiger tail.
While we spent Monday sipping political cocktails rumor had it a film crew was nearby on Fremont. That turned out to be the other Hangover, Last Vegas starring Robert DeNiro and Michael Douglas. Vegas gossip Norm Clarke reported that the cast had been seen checking into Binion's Wednesday. Which is ironic as Binion's doesn't currently have an active check-in desk. Ah, the magic of Hollywood.
Hold all calls and send all messages to Caesars Palace for the rest of the year. That's where we'll be camping out for our Hangover III cameo. Robin Leach reports that cast and crew, including the return of Heather Graham (mom!), will arrive this month for three weeks of filming.
Technically, our official invite to appear hasn't arrived yet. It's probably held up pending our SAG card approval, but with a face like ours how can they say no? Worst case scenario, we know where to hang out waiting to be discovered: the lobby, valet, bank of payphones, the ice machine (what you didn't think we saw Hangover II?), the Hangover slot machine...whoa. Mind blown. Imagine Alan camped out at a Hangover slot. In. The Hangover.
Anyone that's been an admirer of the Jabbawockeez moves, but lack syncopation and timing or even coordination and balance may want to put a new set of DVDs from the faceless dance boys on their shopping list. The five DVD set will teach home school students the Top Rocks, the Kaboom, the Gee-One, the Throwback, and the Matrix. If those swingin' names of each disc don't mean a thing all you got to do is pick up these DVDs.
Just think how studying the Jabbawockeez steps will enhance your quality of life. Impress friends at the next Jbwkz show and enhance their amazement with comments like "I can do that" and "It's all just physical and mental." Challenge and beat everyone in the buffet line to a dance battle. Combine your new found shake and balance skills while entering and exiting the bathroom. Or, bedroom. Mask optional. The possibilities are endless.
The Las Vegas under Las Vegas is the focus of an new indie production, "Undercity: Las Vegas."
The online documentary(esque) feature follows urban historian Steve Duncan and director Andrew Wonder as they "head below Sin City to see what lurks beneath the surface." In layman's terms, they headed into the drainage tunnels most of us never even notice. Especially, when the only clue to their existence, on the Strip at least, are random manhole covers.
The duo spent four days exploring the tunnels, many of which run under Strip hotels. Duncan spoke about his journey with the Huffington Post:
the fantastic part came from finding out that this new world was actually a friendly, amazing place, full of genuinely interesting people who were almost all friendly (with a couple exceptions). The cool tunnels under the Strip were what made it fantastic. It's why the underground can be so cool: you head into the dark, not knowing what's ahead of you, and then slowly you get comfortable and a great new world opens up in front of you.
