New 'Arthur' trailer keeps first one's funniest bits, adds John Hodgman

The new trailer for the Russell Brand-starring remake of Arthur plays better than the first one, in my opinion. It keeps the best bits (i.e. his bedtime ritual, his magnet one-liner), and adds in some new ones (like him working at a candy store underneath John Hodgman). It also focuses more on the woman he really loves (Greta Gerwig) than the one he’s supposed to marry to keep his fortune (Jennifer Garner), which gives nanny Helen Mirren’s line to his mother, “He’s stronger than you think,” more meaning.
