A new trailer for the Arthur remake with Russell Brand has hit the net. The previous one was pretty funny but it was missing one important element — Greta Gerwig. She’s the lady who plays the real love of Arthur’s life, yet she didn’t get any screentime in the first trailer. She’s not exactly plastered all over this version either, but she gets something. Take a look…
Arthur is directed by “Modern Family’s” Jason Winer and will follow a wealthy drunk (Russell 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 also co-stars as Arthur’s caregiver aka “adult nanny.”
Can we just say how happy we are to see Nick Nolte on screen again? Like a lot of actors, he’s gone through his fair share of rough patches but the man’s talented. We hope his casting in this movie is one in a string of many more.
Arthur is scheduled to hit theaters on April 8.
