Ha I’m just kidding Russell Crowe! I think you’re fantastic, I’ve seen all your films from “Gladiator” to, er, “Gladiator”. (Though you’ll ALWAYS be Mike from “Neighbours” to me, Russell).
So… Nice Guys news!
“The Nice Guys” – a movie that wasn’t either from a much-loved Brit comedy show, or part of a superhero franchise, or an animated kids’ film (and that didn’t cost either 8p or £120 million) did really well this summer, probably helped by Russell Crowe’s indefatigable promotion all over Twitter. It does seem to be part of a (welcome) trend for medium budget movies to do well when they aren’t overhyped and are directed at the right audience (see also: Florence Foster Jenkins, Bad Moms).
Anyway if you missed seeing Russell play John Goodman and Ryan Gosling play Ryan Reynolds in cinemas, it’s out in DVD and Blu Ray on Monday 26 September!
