New Trailer for Emilia Clarke's LAST CHRISTMAS, Which Looks Like a Hallmark Christmas Movie
There’s a huge market for those Hallmark holiday films. People seem to love them, my wife and kids are among them. Me? I can’t stand them. Well, director Paul Feig (A Simple Favor, Spy, Bridesmaids) has directed a Christmas movie called Last Christmas, and it looks like one of those Hallmark films. My wife even agrees with me, and of course she wants to see it.
The script for the film comes from Emma Thompson and Bryony Kimmings, and it has a great cast that includes Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones), Henry Golding (A Simple Favor, Crazy Rich Asians), Michelle Yeoh, and Thompson.
The film is a romantic comedy that was inspired by the George Michael song. In the story, “Kate (Clarke) harumphs around London, a bundle of bad decisions accompanied by the jangle of bells on her shoes, another irritating consequence from her job as an elf in a year-round Christmas shop. Tom (Golding) seems too good to be true when he walks into her life and starts to see through so many of Kate’s barriers. As London transforms into the most wonderful time of the year, nothing should work for these two. But sometimes, you gotta let the snow fall where it may, you gotta listen to your heart … and you gotta have faith.”
Last Christmas also features new music of George Michael. This normally isn’t my kind of movie, but I’ll go see because my wife wants to.
The movie is set to be released on November 8th.
