Remember the PBS Kids‘ animated series Arthur? Well, we’re at the start of the 22nd season (yes, it has been that long since your childhood) and yet the program continues to evolve with the times for the benefit of its young audience – this time, with the season premiere highlighting the same-sex wedding between teacher […]

The Tick

The Tick Season 1B: Our Hapless Heroes Unite in Amazon’s New Trailer

Sometimes, being wrong isn’t always a bad thing. Case in point: The Tick (Peter Serafinowicz), who spent the first half of The Tick‘s Season 1 on Amazon trying to convince everyone that super-villain The Terror (Jackie Earle Haley) was actually still alive. On a positive note? He was right for once. On a negative note? He […]

Rick Veitch’s Cover For The Return Of Arthur

How’s that for an early Christmas present? Rick Veitch draws the cover for the return of free counterculture broadsheet newspaper. Except it’s no longer free. But it does give you a lot for about five bucks. And includes an appreciation from Alan Moore… GIANT-SIZED Broadsheet newspaper Sixteen gigantic 15″ x 22.75″ pages (8 color, 8 […]

VIDEO: Jason Winer Talks To Bleeding Cool About Arthur

Yet another whistlestop junket interview, this time catching ahold of Arthur‘s director Jason Winer for a few short minutes. This is his feature debut, after some years of work in TV, including the lauded Modern Family. You’ll pretty quickly realise that he’s also an actor. He has that certain ease and bounciness. [youtube][/youtube] I did […]

VIDEO: Greta Gerwig Speaks To Bleeding Cool

Greta Gerwig is the female romantic lead in Arthur. I sat down with her this week, for an astonishingly brief period of time, to talk about the film, and how it fits into her catalogue of work. [youtube][/youtube] Arthur is out today in the UK, and has been playing in the US for a couple […]

Win! Everything In Our Mammoth Arthur Prize Vault

I’ll tell you what I liked about the new Arthur over the old one – it doesn’t try to milk alcoholism for “funny drunk” jokes. That’s a very pleasing step up, if you ask me. Anyhow, more about that film tomorrow, when it opens in UK cinemas, as I have a couple of video interviews […]

New Trailer For Batman And Robi… Er… Arthur, With Russell Brand

Scripted by Bleeding Cool favourite Peter Baynham and loaded with proven comedy performers, the remake of Arthur seems more than likely to please. Indeed, I have it on good, if slightly biased authority, from somebody who has seen it that it’s really very funny.* Amongst other things, this second trailer for the film shows Arthur’s […]

Movies And Music Double: Lukas Haas, Isabel Lucas, Ben Gibbard And Arthur

Time for me to channel The Playlist a little. Let’s link hands, blow out the candle and close our eyes. First up…Here’s the video for Made For You by Lucas/Lukas who are the actor Isabel Lucas and the actor Lukas Haas. [youtube][/youtube] Next… Ben Gibbard of Death Cab For Cutie has tweeted that his song […]

Swipe File: Russell Brand’s Head And Russell Brand’s Head

The poster changes, yet the head remains the same. I shared two posters from Arthur earlier on today. Here’s another way of looking at them – a way that highlights just how useful one picture of Russell Brand’s head can be. [youtube][/youtube] In Swipe File we present two or more images that resemble each other […]

First Footage From Arthur With Russell Brand And Helen Mirren

There’s no trailer yet, but our first look at Arthur, the Russell Brand-starring remake of the offensive “drunks are funny” comedy of the early 80s, cropped up on TV the other night. Shortly after I turned my TV off. Luckily, the moment was preserved for posterity by YouTube user GlorifiedJester1. In the following clip, you […]

Arthur Christmas Teaser Trailer From Aardman/Sony

Written by the quite extraordinary Peter Baynham of Four Lions, Borat and I’m Alan Partridge, here is the teaser for Arthur Christmas from Sony and Aardman Animation. But this is how I’ll always remember Peter Baynham – from Fist Of Fun.

Arthur Shots Go Back To The Future

Sometimes, being Batman is just not enough. In the last picture you can see Peter Baynham, one of the film’s screenwriters – that’s him with the specs, looking right at Russell Brand. I’d expect he’s on set to help with on-the-go alterations, new gags and problem solving. This is a good thing: he’s very funny. […]
