It’s arguably one of the most anticipated films of 2023, “Asterix and Obelix: The Middle Kingdom” will be released on February 1 and fans are excited. This new opus is this time directed by Guillaume Canet, who also takes on the features of Asterix with Gilles Lelouche who interprets him Obélix.
As part of the promotion of this new film, Guillaume Canet was invited to participate in the brand new program by Alain Chabat, which will be broadcast from November 21 on TF1, “Le Late avec Alain Chabat”. If we will have to wait a little longer before being able to watch this new program in its entirety, a short extract has already been shared on social networks.
In the video, we discover Alain Chabat encouraging Guillaume Canet for his new film. “Guillaume, in any case, I wish you all the best for your Asterix”he says, before continuing: “Even if it’s true that it’s hot to go after me”. A sentence that had the gift of making the public laugh but which somewhat disconcerted the main interested party. “I was a little taken aback by what you said to me”replied the actor. “I just want to say… Since my film is cult, I just want to wish you the best of luck. I would hate to be in your shoes”, added Alain Chabat in a humorous tone. After a few seconds of pause, Guillaume Canet affirmed that it is what many people wished him. “I imagine”, concluded the one who made “Asterix and Obelix: Mission Cleopatra”, one of the greatest successes of French cinema.
