Canet and Lellouche in Asterix and Obelix: discover the best reactions to Twitter

From Clémounet – Posted 3 months ago

The next film Asterix and Obelix has a new cast to play the two emblematic characters of Uderzo and Goscinny. We have known for several months that a new episode ofAsterix and Obelix was in preparation, and we now have confirmation of this. This morning Pathé unveiled the title of the 5th adaptation of the adventures ofAsterix and Obelix in the cinema, Asterix and Obelix, the Middle Kingdom. This new film will be directed by Guillaume Canet and he and Gilles Lellouche have been chosen to play the two heroes. Although Asterix had already been played by Clovis Cornillac and Édouard Baer after Christian Clavier, the role of Obelix had always been played by Gérard Depardieu. A page is turned because 21 years after the first film it is Guillaume Canet and Gilles Lellouche who will play the two famous Gauls. A choice that may please, but has also been mocked on social networks Here is a compilation of the best reactions on Twitter.





he should have taken Issa Doumbia to make Obelix would have been more credible. #guillaumecanet #asterix #obelix #lellouche

So Canet directs Canet has the lead role. Unsurprisingly, Mr. has always had more melon than talent. Even if he had to take one of his buddies for the role of Obelix, he could have at least taken a good actor…

I really don’t like Canet, but don’t be ridiculous. His two biggest hits as a realist (Les Petis Mouchoirs and Nous finirons ensemble), he doesn’t play in it!

That’s just it. He’s a good director (see very good sometimes) but as an actor he’s really at the bottom of the basket. That’s what spoils a lot of his films, he gives himself the limelight when he’s not up to it.

His filmography would be much better if he would stick to what he does well and let those who are better than him play the roles he directs.

To be seen, but I’m afraid (like the vast majority of Franco-Belgian comics adaptations of the last 15 years).

That said, I don’t see how they could do worse than the last two Asterixes (Olympic Games and In the Service of His Majesty).

But for me Obelix is Depardieu and Depardieu is Obelix. It’s gonna be weird.

The last two Asterix are bad, not because of the actors, but because of their bastard script that don’t respect the original work and are rather a fatra of bad jokes not funny.

To support my point, the Asterix de chabat scrupulously respects the original script but adds an offbeat tone with anachronistic jokes and deliriums in the narrative, which is completely contemporary. That’s what made it a cult work.

When they want to make a new Asterix they all fail every time. The authors of the source material were undeniably talented, so why not use what they created instead of wasting this license?

Because we have financiers at the helm, and not real artists who are passionate about the original work.

They should make do with the animated versions. Live films adapted from Franco-Belgian comics are often wobbly or even very bad in terms of quality (apart from a few rare exceptions such as Mission Cleopatra). You only have to see what Asterix did to see that an animated film about Asterix is better than a live Asterix (script, humour, aesthetics, casting, etc).

The first Asterix was a massacre, the second was a work of art due in part to the fact that Clavier et Depardieu was erased from the role of Debouze and all the others. Cornillac was crying … no no no no Asterix it only works in cartoons !! Alain Chabat’s film is a UFO that will never find its equal!

And whatever you think, Dapardieu (whom I admire) has always been bad in this role !!!

Depardieu bad in Obelix? I’d like you to explain it to me now. If it’s because it doesn’t correspond to the Obelix of comics, I remind you that films are adaptations in which the writing of the characters is accompanied by freedoms on the part of the writers and the director.

Yes, as much as I don’t understand why he didn’t get a Caesar for this role…

Is it just me, or do I look like two extras on the poster of a 10€ suit from GIFI, where it just says suit gauloi?

Indeed, it’s hard to forget G. Depardieu…

G.Lellouche could have put on a minimum of weight, (we don’t ask him to make metamorphoses the Christian Bale way) but I hope it’s just promo pictures and that he’s going to remedy his physique, even Asteix with a bigger bust ! 😀

You’d think the cast of Vercingetorix with C.Lambert :)))))
