At Noyal-Pontivyx, Pascal Le Corre delivers his all-risk insurance review of the next Asterix – Noyal-Pontivy

In Noyal Pontivy, there is one to whom Guillaume Canet could have asked advice to direct his next film, “Asterix and Obelix: The Middle Empire” which will be released in theaters on Wednesday February 1, 2023. Pascal Le Corre at 59 years old and is “the second or third biggest collector” of objects dedicated to Asterix, Obelix, Dogmatix and all their Gallic, Roman, Egyptian comrades etc… from the famous comics by Goscinny and Uderzo.

” I’m eager to “

If he did not fall into it when he was little, “when I was younger I collected tintin”, he now owns several hundred pieces, and, of course, all the albums. “Asterix and Obelix: The Middle Kingdom”, he will obviously go to see it. “I can’t wait, it’s a change from the first ones, they’re not the same actors”. However, he and his fellow collectors who discuss on a Facebook group, are not thrilled: “We talk about it a lot, we discuss the trailers, and for the moment it does not seem great to us, afterwards you have to see the film before to give an opinion”, he relativizes.

Regarding the actors, he is satisfied “Guillaume Cannet (Asterix)? I like it ! And Gilles Lellouche? um… Depardieu was the best, but he’s good too”. As his reputation precedes him, on the occasion of the release of the film, Pascal Le Corre will soon receive a visit from TF1, “the guys saw that I had been in 37 newspapers, that’s why they m have contacted”, he laughs.

Her favourite? Mission Cleopatra

He is a faithful of the great hours of the adventures of the Gaul with a mustache. His favorite album? “Asterix the Gaul”, of course! “The drawings are no longer the same, the first editions are great, we see that it’s no longer Uderzo and Goscinny, on the facebook group we all share this analysis,” he says. However, nothing to spoil the unconditional passion that inhabits him, “I always like it, the stories of the new albums remain super good, it’s just a different style”. Regarding films, his favorite is more recent: “The one with Jamel Debbouze, Mission Cléopâtre! “. The feature film, released in January 2002, had been directed by Alain Chabat and had achieved 14 million admissions, a license record, to be seen now if “Asterix and Obelix: The Middle Empire” will do better.
