Arthur Remake Trailer

Bitterman, watch this trailer! Due in theaters in less than two months, Warner Bros has finally unveiled a trailer on Yahoo for Arthur, the remake of the 1981 comedy classic, this time starring Russell Brand as the wealthy, drunken playboy. This has all sorts of wacky stuff in it, as he is a billionaire, so why not throw in everything they can? In addition to Brand, Arthur stars: Helen Mirren, Jennifer Garner, Greta Gerwig, Nick Nolte and Luis Guzmán. Yea, we've seen a lot of Brand on the big screen already, but this is supposed to be his great new comedy. I don't know if all these rich scenes will work, but it looks okay. Watch below!

Watch the official trailer for Jason Winer's Arthur:

A drunken playboy stands to lose a wealthy inheritance when he falls for a woman his family doesn't like.

Arthur is directed by up-and-coming American filmmaker Jason Winer, making his feature directing debut after working on Fox's "Modern Family". The screenplay was written by Peter Baynham, mostly of TV work but also credited for the "story" in Sacha Baron Cohen's Borat & Bruno. This is a remake of Steve Gordon's 1981 film Arthur. Warner Bros is bringing Arthur to theaters starting on April 8th in spring. Look okay?

    Actually looks good. But of course the other 118 minutes may suck.
  • Manuel

      Pretty sure the girl he's going to fall in love with is Greta Gerwig.
    • Guest
      What are you talking about? The character he falls in love with is shown in the first scene of the trailer played by actress Greta Gerwig.

  • Horrible casting for Bitterman.....just bloody awful.
  • Looks like it could be good. Loved that magnet joke.

    Fuck it I'm in. Mirren looks good as usual, and its nice to see Garner playing sexy psycho.
  • Glen
    What happened to Nick Nolte? Is he playing a bottle of scotch?

    The "french kiss" and "my bed is a magnet" jokes were genuinely funny, on paper this looks like shit but the trailer showed a lot of promise. Then again 90% of comedies put all the good jokes in the trailer so yeah, I agree with Todd.
  • fem!anon
    Looks funny. I'm up for it.
  • sleepykid
    I laughed three times during that, which is more than a lot of comedies in full. This may well surprise us. Hell, count me in.
  • Moviekidmike
    Haven't seen the original, but i laughed many times. Looks fun so i'll check it out.
  • John
    Nothing was remotely funny! I didn't laugh once.
  • Seems fun enough.
  • Moif
    But Brand just isn't funny...
  • Guy
    I think Brand is funny, but I didn't laugh once this whole trailer.
  • Film Fan
    Guy, I didn't laugh once in this trailer either. It looks dreadful.
  • scoute
    crap, dreadful.... brand stinks... come on people...
  • voodoo2
    Looks horrible.
  • cinemabandit
    OK...I laughed, I like laughing and I will see the movie in hopes of laughing some more.
  • Chris
    Zero charm. They seem to have missed the point of the story... or swapped it all out for 'Russell Brand being Russell Brand', instead.
  • dogfartlife
    so many sad comments on here by sad people who hide behind there computers. i would jam my fingers back up my bum if i was them and listen to chinese flute music

    this remake looks terrible. i like RB but he doesn't seem right for the role. the jokes seem predictable and veeeeeeeery tired. - i'll pass.
  • Snears
    They haven't broken down that batmobile yet? Jebus, I would have made an event around rigging that thing with dynamite and blowing it up in the desert. Get it on film and shit. Oh yeah, the movie looks ok too
  • Delvis Crasho
    You can't replace Dudley Moore's perfect drunk.
  • McWilley
    Wash You're Winkey!
  • McWilley
    Wash your Winkey! :)
  • Leinergroove
    The confusion strikes me: who wouldn't want to marry someone who looks like Jennifer Garner? Comeeee on people!!!
    • Sleep with someone and marry someone are two different animals altogether, plus she seems to be a little psycho.
  • I think this might actually be good. Was Aurthur always drunk in the original? They must have done away with that aspect of the story.
  • Apple Sauce
    That sucked
  • Shannon
    That looks horrendous. Oh my god. Awful.
  • i actually like this :s and lol "attracted to you"
  • Vegeta
    Dreadful is the word for this
  • Englishray
    Helen Mirren is in it! That's good enough for me!
