First Poster For The New Asterix & Obelix Movie

I’m still not entirely clear what the next Asterix movie is going to be called in English speaking countries, but the French title is something like Asterix & Obelix: On Her Majesty’s Service. James Bond without the secrecy but a bushy tache, a bigger belly and a cute dog in tartan.

That tagline means “These English are crazy!” I think, which is a riff on a line in the comics about Romans. They may have done the same riff in the Asterix in Britain comic, I just don’t have it to hand to check.

The film won’t be in French cinemas until October 17th. My wait for a teaser trailer might be a long one, though they do tend to follow posters quite quickly in US marketing campaigns…
