The immature heir to a billion-dollar empire finds himself cut off from the family fortune after rejecting his arranged marriage to a nouveau riche socialite, and instead falling for a free-spirited unlicensed tour guide in "Arthur," a remake of the sentimental 1981 comedy starring Dudley Moore.

Arthur (Russell Brand) was raised in the lap of luxury. His family is wealthy beyond compare, and ever since he was a child his every whim has been catered to by his nanny, Hobson (Helen Mirren), and his chauffeur, Bitterman (Luis Guzman).

But the party starts to wind down when Arthur's domineerin...

Helen Mirren
Helen Mirren is our idol. She's 65 and looks like this. The actress appears in the August issue of Esquire covering up in just a Union Jack flag. She's daring, and we love it!

Last month she said, "I do not have a great body. I have a c**p body. Naomi Campbell has a great body. Let's be realistic, here."

Stop being so modest, Helen.

The actress recently starred in the "Arthur" remake, which is now on Blu-ray and DVD.

Russell Brand
British funnyman Russell Brand is eager to star in a movie with his wife Katy Perry after their scene in Get Him To The Greek was axed.

The Arthur actor filmed a kissing clip with Perry for the comedy, just before they started dating in September 2009.

The pair became engaged before the movie was released, and Perry's cameo was axed for fear it would be "too cheesy" for viewers.

However Brand, who is now married to the I Kissed a Girl hit-maker, is hopeful he will one day get to appear on screen with the singer.

He tells Britain's Daily Star, "I'd love to star in a movie with my bea...

Not only did he portray the wacky rock star Aldous Snow in the romantic comedy “Forgetting Sarah Marshall,” but he also reprised the role in the spin-off film “Get Him to the Greek,” which featured the character in his own comically debaucherous adventures.

His latest movie “Arthur,” a remake of a 1981 Dudley Moore picture, has Brand starring in the title role, as a rich ne’er-do-well with a drinking problem. Arthur is a child trapped in a man’s body, but Brand’s l...

Russell Brand's Love For Katy Perry Inspired His 'Arthur' Remake

Arthur Movie
This week Russell Brand stars in the remake of Arthur. True to the original, Brand plays a drunk billionaire who falls in love at the risk of his family fortune. In real life, Brand gave up his womanizing ways to marry Katy Perry, and says that inspired him to be the new Arthur.

“Like in Arthur, love has an incredibly transformative quality,” Brand said. “The first thing you do when you fall in love is that you recognize that you’re not the most important person in the world, and your focus becomes another person. The reason the film resonated with me, in the way that it does, is because A...

Russell Brand was left unimpressed by Batman's car after getting behind the wheel for a scene in his new movie comedy Arthur.

Brand's super-rich leading man in the remake dons the Batsuit and takes the Batmobile for a spin, but the British funnyman soon got bored with the motor.

He tells WENN, "The actual car, inside, is not as interesting on the interior. It's like a reverse metaphor for the nature of the human soul; the inside was boring. It's a bit scruffy in there."

"I enjoyed wearing the suit because it had (one-time Batman star George) Clooney musk in it. It had the aroma, the p...

Russell Brand suffered for his art while remaking classic comedy "Arthur" because co-star Nick Nolte kept crushing his genitals in one horse riding scene.

Nolte plays the prospective father-in-law of Brand's film persona and got into character by trying to intimidate the Brit on set. And that included a few painful moments.

Brand recalls, "He helps Arthur on the horse, using his testicles as a fulcrum - my testicles. In my country, if you give someone a boost... (it's) not by the nuts.

"In a film, you have to do things numerous times to achieve perfection, well Nick Nolte, each time he d...
