9780752891873: Asterix at the Olympic Games: The Book of the Film

Give Asterix the gold medal for best-selling series ever, as the character gets ready for his close-up in the sure-to-be-blockbuster film, Asterix at the Olympic Games. It has the biggest budget of any Asterix movie ever filmed, stars Gerard Depardieu, and includes guest cameos from David Beckham, Michael Schumacher, Zinedine Zidane, and wrestler Nathan Jones.
When Asterix and the Gauls compete in Athens’ Olympic Games, they find themselves up against an unexpected restriction: their magic potion has been banned as an artificial stimulant. Can they win without it? And what tricks do their rivals have up their sleeves to ensure that Asterix and his friends go down in defeat?
This entirely new volume features a combination of stills and plot highlights, as well as behind the scenes information. It’s the perfect companion to a fun film.

About the Author:

Rene Goscinny was born in Paris in 1926, and spent most of his childhood in Argentina, before eventually moving to Paris in 1951. He died in 1977. Albert Uderzo was born in 1927 in a small village in Marne, France. He met Rene Goscinny in 1951 and on 29 October 1959 their most famous creation, Asterix, made his first appearance on page 20 of Pilote. ASTERIX THE GAUL, their first album, was published in 1961 and there have now been 35 Asterix albums.

Review:

A cartoon drawn with such supreme artistry, and a text layered with such glorious wordplay, satire and historical and political allusion that no reader should ever feel like they've outgrown it.―TIME OUT

The Asterix books represent the very summit of our achievement as a literary race. In Asterix one finds all of human life. The fact that the books were written originally in French is no matter. I have read them all in many languages and, like all great literature, they are best in English. Anthea Bell and Derek Hockridge, Asterix's translators since the very beginning, have made great books into eternal flames.―THE TIMES
