Russell Brand and Helen Mirren on set for Arthur remake with the Batmobile

07.13.2010

I wonder if this is Helen Mirren day?

Earlier we debuted the character poster for RED with Mirren as Victoria holding her big gun.

Now we're moving on to these behind-the-scenes pics for the remake of ARTHUR.

Mirren is on set as the long time nanny to Russell Brand as Arthur. Mirren is basically the female Hobson. She will be the dry humored counterpart whom comes to be a "second Mother" to the spoiled Arthur. Also notice the Batmobile from BATMAN FOREVER in the last pic. It's likely that this is one of Arthur's cars in his collection. I don't expect Val Kilmer to pop in as Batman. I'm not even sure if they have a costume in his size. Just kidding...

To see more head here and here.

Russell looks really good in those photos.Judging from the top one-He could play Freddie Mercury-looks alot like Freddie in the 1970's.

He's been De-haired..

for this movie. Good. All that pubic fluff all over his face was just a bit icky.

I find the guy fun. If he's going to remake anything, Arthur works with his image fine.

I'm more optimistic

I'm not one to condone remakes in general, but I think Brand is talented - a surprisingly strong dramatic actor (check those darker scenes in Get Him to the Greek) and a surprisingly gifted writer (maybe the only actor who didn't rely on a ghostwriter for his memoirs?). His radio show was also quite funny.

He gets a bit overbearing at times but I think of all the actors out there, he suits this role more than most. Dudley Moore was terrific but I saw the film again recently and, besides his

Dudley Moore was terrific but I saw the film again recently and, besides his awesome performance and Gielgud's, I was kinda shocked by how dated it otherwise has become. And Liza Minelli was awful in it.

That first pic

All he needed was a cod piece and I could have easily thought this was a remake of "A Clockwork Orange" either case............. a bad idea

Brand doesn't have even a thimble's worth of the talent Dudley Moore had.

Another lowest common denominator remake of a worthy film.

Fuck this shit.

Yeah I don't get the big deal with Brand either. But he gets to fuck Katy Perry, so he's laughing at us.

so this is really happening...

stop with the remakes. especially the classics. i hate the excuse we hear so much "to find a new audience", well then tell them to watch the classics...they're timeless.
and no clever guy...you are Not the only one who dislikes Brand. I dont find him at all funny.

I can't be the only one

Am I the only one who really doesn't care for Russell Brand? I don't know what it is, but I don't care for him.

The only reason I didn't give this a "bad" vote is because Helen Mirren saved it from being a "bad" vote. That's it. Plus, she's quite the hot old lady.

Not a fan of his stand-up, but I find his appearances in films very entertaining. But I will say its a fine line before too much is too much
