Arthur and Mike Review

  • HeyUGuys
Despite being two of the most gifted, sought-after actors in world cinema, it’s something of a surprise to see Colin Firth and Emily Blunt’s Arthur and Mike gain such a low-scale release, with little promotion behind director Dante Ariola’s star-studded, debut endeavour. However the further into this underwhelming picture you get the more apparent it becomes as to why this film has slipped under the radar somewhat, as despite those attached – Arthur and Mike is frustratingly, and overtly, unsubtle.

Firth plays Wallace Avery, a talented golfer who becomes disillusioned with life, and so one day decides to pack up, obtain a brand new identity (‘Arthur Newman’) and leave behind a wife and teenage son, without even the courtesy of a note. While he’s filed under the missing person register, he is in fact embarking on a road trip, seeking pastures new – before he stumbles across the

Check Out Colin Firth And Emily Blunt In The ‘Arthur And Mike’ Trailer

It should be a criminal offence to release films at such different times, but it looks like the latest flick from Colin Firth and Emily Blunt, titled Arthur And Mike, will finally be getting a UK release.

Firth plays the title character of Wallace Avery, who decides to fake his own death and start a new life as Arthur Newman. On his travels he meets Michaela (Blunt), who is more close to home than Arthur thinks - she is also maintaining a different identity. Written by Under The Cherry Moon and Seven Years In Tibet scribe Becky Johnston, the film made its debut at the Toronto Film Festival back in 2012, and the Us release followed early 2013. It is also the feature directorial debut from Dante Ariola.

We have to say, Firth and Blunt in one movie? Should be a match-made in heaven right? Check out the trailer below and make a judgement for yourself!

The trailer for Arthur And Mike has been released.

Colin Firth stars in the romantic drama as a once-talented golfer who fakes his own death out of desperation to escape his current life.

After acquiring a new passport and a fake identity, he begins a new life in Indiana and encounters the similarly-troubled Charlotte (Emily Blunt), a woman travelling under her twin sister's identity.

The pair embark on an escapist road trip together, breaking into empty homes and role-playing new identities, but are ultimately forced to confront their own pasts.

The film is director Dante Ariola's debut feature, and is written by Becky Johnston. It was released in the Us last year under the title Arthur Newman.

Arthur And Mike is released in the UK on June 27.

New DVD Blu-ray: 'Now You See Me,' 'Sharknado,' 'Stories We Tell'

  • Moviefone
Moviefone's Top DVD of the Week

"Now You See Me"

What's It About? In "Now You See Me," from director Louis Leterrier's ("The Incredible Hulk"), a team of the world's best illusionists -- dubbed The Four Horsemen -- are known for robbing banks during their performances and giving away the money. However, the magicians are being tracked by an FBI agent and an Interpol detective. Why We're In: One of the most unique stories of the summer (we've had enough superhero & action flicks for a while), "Now You See Me" was a refreshing find. The film also had a great cast, including the very underrated Mark Ruffalo, Jessie Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Isla Fisher, Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman, and Melanie Laurent. "Now You See Me" was one of Moviefone's Best Movies of 2013 (So Far).

Blu-Ray New Releases Rundown Early Sept. 2013

The early part of September this year isn’t just back-to-school, or the time to prepare for the new fall season of TV, it’s apparently the time when we’re hoping you’re in the market to own some new Blu-Rays.

I suppose back-to-school, as a time of year, has some sell to it already – something to stuff in dorm boxes, and/or the kids are finally busy again, I have a minute to watch something – but, there’s a lot showing up this year, and the battle for your attention is going to be a big one.

Arthur Newman Movie Review

Arthur Newman Movie Review
Title: Arthur Newman Director: Dante Ariola Starring: Emily Blunt, Colin Firthm Anne Heche, Philip Troy Linger, Sterling Beaumon, Kristin Lehman, David Andrews, Peter Jurasik. What a cliche to call a man ‘Newman’ to epitomise his urge to start anew. And this is just the first of many commonplaces that you may find in Dante Ariola’s flick. ‘Arthur Newman’ is the new identity Wallace Avery (Colin Firth) buys after staging his own death. His ex-wife and son hate him, he hates his job and he blew his one shot at living his dream to become a professional golfer. Not wanting to face all of this, Wallace becomes Arthur Newman. But his [ Read More ]
