Russell Brands Arthur gets a first trailer


The first trailer for Russell Brand’s Arthur remake has landed online.

Following the exploits of drunken playboy Arthur (Brand), the film sees him mollycoddled by his nanny Hobson (Helen Mirren) and set to lose his fortune.

The original film was released in 1981, and bagged two Academy Awards - one for Best Music, and one for Best Supporting Actor (John Gielgud).

Check out the trailer below…

With its David Bowie soundtrack, Batmobile cameo and raunchy-crazy Jennifer Garner, this remake seems to have thrown in everything it can think of.

Including a scene-stealing Helen Mirren, who’s bound to make the entire thing worthwhile – and balance out Brand’s squeaky-voiced mayhem. Of which there is sure to be a lot.

Arthur opens 22 April.
