The first poster for Arthur was (in addition to being bland) slightly odd in that it didn’t feature Greta Gerwig, who plays the love interest of Russell Brand’s eponymous character. Warner Bros. has now sent us a new banner for the film brings Gerwig in on the standing-and-sitting action enjoyed by Brand and co-stars Helen Mirren and Jennifer Garner.
Hit the jump to check out the banner. Arthur opens April 8th.

Romantic Comedy. In this fresh new look at a classic story, Russell Brand re-invents the role of loveable billionaire Arthur Bach, an irresponsible charmer who has always relied on two things to get by: his limitless fortune and the good sense of lifelong nanny Hobson (Helen Mirren) to keep him out of trouble. Now he faces his biggest challenge–choosing between an arranged marriage to ambitious corporate exec Susan (Jennifer Garner), that will ensure his lavish lifestyle, or an uncertain future with the one thing money can’t buy, Naomi (Greta Gerwig), the woman he really loves. With Naomi’s inspiration and some unconventional help from Hobson, the one person who always believed in him, Arthur will take the most expensive risk of his life and learn what it means to be a man, in this re-imagining of the romantic comedy “Arthur.”
