Russell Brand shows us his best Arthur in this new trailer

02.10.2011

The trailer for the ARTHUR remake is up and ready for you to judge it.

To be honest, it's really hard for me to not be partial to the original. Dudley Moore in the role of the drunken, rich, man-child is sort of hard to top. This version is trying to go in a bit of a different route so that it can stand apart from the original. It wants to pull at your heart strings more and let you know that it's okay to find Jennifer Garner attractive. I tried to be fair to this trailer but wound up having that "meh" feeling. The Darth Vader bit with Helen Mirren is actually sort of funny. I just wonder if this version is trying too hard.

But the final say isn't up to me, it's up to you guys. Check it out and let us know what you think.

Synopsis:

"Irresponsible charmer Arthur Bach (Russell Brand) has always relied on two things to get by: his limitless fortune and the good sense of lifelong nanny Hobson (Helen Mirren) to keep him out of trouble. Now he faces his biggest challenge--choosing between an arranged marriage that will ensure his lavish lifestyle or an uncertain future with the one thing money can't buy, Naomi (Greta Gerwig), the only woman he has ever loved. With Naomi's inspiration and some unconventional help from Hobson, Arthur will take the most expensive risk of his life and finally learn what it means to become a man, in this re-imagining of the classic romantic comedy "Arthur.""

I just rewatched the origianl recently and it is good, no doubt, but not AWESOME. This trailer I got some laughs from, and they upped the role of Susan in this it seems. Surprised Jennifer Garner took the role based on what I know of it from the first movie. But I still think there really isn't a need to remake this one. Will see it on DVD - will not pay money to see it.

Garbage at it's finest

What is the big attraction/draw with Russell Brand? I've been trying to figure this out, and yet I can't. This movie looks cringeworthy at best. And seriously, how many different songs can you have for one shit trailer for one shit movie?

Trying to hard, but...

looks like it will be funny. Brand and Mirren look to have chemistry, but to be better than Dudley and the original Hobson, sorry. I'm too old school for this.

Separation Anxiety

I'm doing my best to separate this from the original and on that basis, it doesn't look that bad. Is this Arthur? Not really, but it was funny.

Not even a chuckle, or a smile brought to my face. They just shit on a modern classic. I'm beginning to loath Russel Brand

This looks really bad. I'm a "mumblecore" fan so I've known about Greta Gerwig for a while and have always thought she was a great actress. I thought it was cool that she's been getting recognition and some more mainstream type of roles but unfortunately all three of her non-mumblecore movies are a major letdown. No Strings Attached? Arthur? Garbage. And I had high hopes for Greenberg but that ended up being terrible.

It's not got gonna be EVEN close to as good as the original, but it doesn't look bad. Luis Guzman and Helen Mirren are going to make this movie.

The humor seems flat and relies too much on pop culture (Batman, Star Wars).

Looks a lot better than expected

I never understood the hatred for Brand, I think he's far funnier than someone like Seth Rogen

It doesn't look overly offensive to the spirit of the original to be honest.
It doesn't look like a masterpiece, but nothing to dismiss either.
The soundtrack looks like it's shaping up to be really good, surprisingly for a modern comedy.

I laughed at the 'I'm Bitterman' line and seeing as it's 10 seconds into the trailer that's not too bad.
