Every day, find the programming of movies and series to watch on TV. This Sunday: our favorite Gauls from our English neighbours, the adventures of Godefroy and Jacquouille and a drama about the military dictatorship in Chile.
In 2012, Laurent Tirard embarked on the fourth live-action adaptation of Uderzo and Goscinny’s cult comic with Asterix and Obelix: in the service of His Majesty. Facing Gérard Depardieu, who has become inseparable from the role of Obelix, the director chooses Édouard Baer to play Asterix because, according to him, “comes very close to the idea that foreigners have of the French.”
After playing the cult scribe Otis in Asterix and Obelix: Mission Cleopatra, the actor succeeds Christian Clavier and Clovis Cornillac as the main hero. The movie also refers to her, during a scene where Asterix asks, during a torture scene: “But is this a good situation, executioner?”. A clear nod to the similar phrase pronounced by Panoramix as the introduction to Édouard Baer’s famous monologue, forever an improvisation classic.
And now it’s up to Guillaume Canet, accompanied by his sidekick Gilles Lellouche, to take over by lending his feature films to Asterix and Obelix respectively in the highly anticipated Middle Kingdom, scheduled for release in February 2023.
