After months of promotion, various photos, and interviews the first trailer for the Arthur remake has been released! The film stars Russell Brand as the title character who was originally made famous by the late Dudley Moore. The actors share a lot in common, they’re both funny, they’re both British, and they both like to wear tight pants and top hats! Check out the rest of the similarities below…

Arthur is directed by “Modern Family’s” Jason Winer and will follow a wealthy drunk (Brand) who risks his large trust fund to be with someone his mother doesn’t approve of — a poor girl (Greta Gerwig). He’s pushed to marry a well-off heiress (Jennifer Garner) who has a very religious father, played by Nick Nolte. Oscar winner Helen Mirren is also on board as Arthur’s caregiver aka  “adult nanny.”

Are we the only ones wondering where Gerwig’s character is in this trailer? She’s completely M.I.A. We get plenty of Jen Garner who’s supposedly the “villainess” but no real love interest. Maybe they’re saving her for the second trailer?

Arthur opens in theaters on April 8th.

What do you think of the trailer for Arthur? Does it look like a worthy remake?
