Russell Brand’s Arthur gets a first trailer

Comedy remake lands


The first trailer for Russell Brand’s Arthur remake has landed online.

Following the exploits of drunken playboy Arthur (Brand), the film sees him mollycoddled by his nanny Hobson (Helen Mirren) and set to lose his fortune.

The original film was released in 1981, and bagged two Academy Awards - one for Best Music, and one for Best Supporting Actor (John Gielgud).

Check out the trailer below…

With its David Bowie soundtrack, Batmobile cameo and raunchy-crazy Jennifer Garner, this remake seems to have thrown in everything it can think of.

Including a scene-stealing Helen Mirren, who’s bound to make the entire thing worthwhile – and balance out Brand’s squeaky-voiced mayhem. Of which there is sure to be a lot.

Arthur opens 22 April.

Hilarious? Or horrible? Are you looking forward to this remake? Spill your guts below...

      Russel just looks so weird clean shaven. And wow Jenifer Garner looks incredibly sexy in this.

      It was one of my favourite films when I was a kid, so Russell, pretty please with sugar on top. Don't f**k it up.

      Well, i must admit I thought it was going to be a lot worse than that. Not that I'll see it but he seems to have made it his own.. good luck trying to win over the die hard original fans though

      Jesus the original was hardly a classic... this looks pretty good, am a fan of the Brand and he looks like pulling this one off too with his own unique style... and yeah he does look weird without the beard... all teeth and gums!
