Watch: The trailer for “Arthur,” featuring Russell Brand, Helen Mirren, and Jennifer Garner

Pin it

People really seem to be playing off type here: Helen Mirren as a domestic, Jennifer Garner as a sex kitten, Russell Brand as funny… (NB: Garner is a very attractive lady, but she's mostly struck me as a girl-next-door type. That growl she gives off near the end is not exactly 13 Going On 30 material.) Point being, Brand actually made me laugh once during this trailer for the remake of Dudley Moore's Arthur, which is impressive:

Also, mumblecore darling Greta Gerwig plays the true love interest in the film, not that you'd know from this trailer. And hopefully this will be more successful than Mirren's and Brand's last collaboration, The Tempest.
