Today we got our first glimpse of Russell Brand in the title role of 'Arthur'. The movie also stars Helen Mirren and Jennifer Garner. I have to say, this trailer did make me laugh quite a few times. Especially the magnet gag:
'Arthur' is a remake of the 80's comedy starring Dudley Moore, Liza Minnelli and Sir John Gielgud. One of the biggest differences of the story is that the character of Arthur has switched from being a drunk to just being a spoiled brat.
From watching the trailer for the new version, it does seem that the change does work. I only hope that they put that rockin' Christopher Cross song, Arthur's Theme, in this one.
'Arthur' comes out April 8.
