Here we go with this weeks edition of Best of the Week.
Movie Trailer of the Week:
The Incredible Burt Wonderstone – In theaters March 15th, 2013
Synopsis: When a street magician’s stunt begins to make their show look stale, superstar magicians Burt Wonderstone and Anton Marvelton look to salvage on their act – and their friendship – by staging their own daring stunt.
2 movie trailers in a row about magicians? Maybe magic is making a come back. Not sure this is going to rank in my list of films that must be seen in theater more likely it will rank in the “I’ll wait for it to come out on Blu-Ray” category.
The cast is led by Steve Carell and Jim Carrey, and features Alan Arkin, Steve Buscemi and the sexy Olivia Wilde.
YouTube Video of the Week:
Pepsi Max & Jeff Gordon present: “Test Drive”
Yes, I know it’s a fake… it’s not really Jeff Gordon (debatable) and the car sales rep is a paid actor, but who cares. Pepsi has put together one of the best and most original advertisements I’ve seen recently. I would so love to this myself, but I’m not skilled as a driver, if I was… I might be The Stig‘s Canadian cousin.
News Article of the Week:
Twinkies buyer says cakes could be back by summer.
You might remember how the USA almost imploded back in November 2012 when Hostess, the company that makes Twinkies, Ding Dongs and those awesome cupcakes with the white icing twirl on them, declared bankruptcy and stopped operations. Well, there is hope, someone is buying up the tasty little treats and hopes to have them back on store shelves soon.
