'Arthur Newman' Trailer: Colin Firth and Emily Blunt Are Identity Thieves

Colin Firth is one of our favorite actors in the world, thanks to movies like "A Single Man," "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy" and his Oscar-winning turn in "The King's Speech." And Emily Blunt is one of our favorite actresses, wowing us in "The Devil Wears Prada," "The Young Victoria" and "Looper." So what happens when two great talents with a history of making amazing movies come together?

You get the new trailer for "Arthur Newman," courtesy of Vulture, that's what. And the trailer is... actually, it's kind of a hot mess.

We know what you're thinking: That can't possibly be true. There must be some mistake. We've gone mad. Up is down, left is right, cats and dogs living together! Mass hysteria!

And yet. Here's what we've gleaned from this clip, which teases "Arthur Newman's" impending April 26 release: Firth plays a guy who may or may not be a golf pro but probably has indulged in some form of identity theft. Blunt plays a girl who might also be an identity thief, though not of the funny Melissa McCarthy type; instead, she and Firth go on some sort of creepy spree where they break into people's houses, try on their clothes and act weirdly American while completely random and inappropriate music wails on the soundtrack.

Look, these two are great. And as a result, there's at least a decent chance "Arthur Newman" is also at least watchable. But this trailer... well, it's just proof that sometimes the whole is less than the sum of its parts. Just watch it and see if you don't agree.
