Arthur Synopsis

In this fresh new look at a classic story, Russell Brand re-invents the role of loveable billionaire Arthur Bach, an irresponsible charmer who has always relied on two things to get by: his limitless fortune and the good sense of lifelong nanny Hobson (Helen Mirren) to keep him out of trouble. Now he faces his biggest challenge--choosing between an arranged marriage to ambitious corporate exec Susan (Jennifer Garner), that will ensure his lavish lifestyle, or an uncertain future with the one thing money can't buy, Naomi (Greta Gerwig), the woman he really loves. With Naomi's inspiration and some unconventional help from Hobson, the one person who always believed in him, Arthur will take the most expensive risk of his life and learn what it means to be a man, in this re-imagining of the romantic comedy "Arthur."

His ground and pound strategy might be a vicious fuck you to his own liver, but it’s also impressive in a go-hard-or-go-home Betty Ford kind of way. It’s inspired some of us to start asking for doubles. More importantly, it’s inspired more of us to argue endlessly over Google Chat and Facebook messages about why certain cinematic drunks are better than others. In the end, we couldn’t come to a consensus; so, we decided to give everyone a chance to defend his or her favorite.

Arthur Will Be Treated To Early Blu-Ray And DVD Releases Arthur Will Be Treated To Early Blu-Ray And DVD Releases
Pulling together a Blu-Ray and DVD release rather quickly after a film leaves theaters has its drawbacks, namely regarding special features. The DVD release for Arthur is especially sparse, and will only come with additional scenes. The Blu-Ray/DVD combo pack will pick up the slack a little, and will come with a gag reel, an “unsupervised feature” with Russell Brand and director Jason Winer, and a digital copy.

Is it summertime yet? The US box office continues to languish under the weight of cinematic mediocrity and what appears to be a delayed reaction to the American financial crisis. Our best hope? Summer blockbusters...and soon. Despite there being four new entries this weekend, none could pop last weekend's Hop from its top spot.

Here’s a new poster for Arthur, in which Russell Brand strikes a relaxing pose while uptight people look uptight standing around him. It’s a lot like the previous poster except instead of a bowler above Russell Brand’s head, we get Greta Gerwig. Greta Gerwig is good.

First Arthur Poster First Arthur Poster
The film is a remake of the same-named Dudley Moore movie, with well known, drunken lothario Russell Brand in the title role. The film should hit a lot of the high-notes of the previous version, but maybe even have more fun with it since at some point Arthur will dress up like Batman and hop in the Batmobile. Everything’s better with the Batmobile. For now here’s a look at the movie’s first poster.

Remaking Arthur seems like kind of a bad idea. The 80s movies about a lovable, drunken billionaire hinged entirely on Dudley Moore. He was Arthur and without him there’s really nothing worth watching. Besides, isn’t the concept kind of dated? Do we still find alcoholism
