First official images of Russell Brand and Helen Mirren in the Arthur remake
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
I know we have more than a few readers that enjoy the comic styling of Russell Brand, so I’ll refrain from making any negative remarks about the guy. And even though I don’t necessarily find him funny, I find myself intrigued by the ARTHUR remake. As I’ve said before, I didn’t like the original, but I do believe there’s a funny movie in there somewhere. Now whether or not Russell Brand and director Jason Winer can find that comedy still remains to be seen. But below we have the first official images from the film, leading me to believe a teaser trailer is only a couple of months away.
The film stars Russell Brand as the titular Arthur; a spoiled rich boy that ends up falling in love with a working class woman right around the time his family pressures him to marry a wealthy woman. Obviously, hilarity ensues. Helen Mirren and Greta Gerwig also star in the film hitting theaters next year.
