First Trailer For Paul Feig’s “Last Christmas” Released

By Creative Media Times


Christmas comes early with the release of the first trailer for Universal’s “Last Christmas”, the upcoming romantic comedy from director Paul Feig (Bridesmaids, The Heat).

The film stars Game of Thrones’ Emilia Clarke and Henry Golding, who had a breakout role last year in “Crazy Rich Asians.”

The trailer shows Kate (Emilia Clarke) as a cynical, down-on-her-luck Londoner who works as an elf in a year-round Christmas shop. “I bet nothing’s ever your fault, is it darling?,” says Kate’s flatmate before throwing her out the apartment. Enter Tom (Golding), who seem to regularly bump into Kate. She starts to confide in him, and the two starts a festive romance.

Throughout the trailer, we also hear some of George Michael’s classic songs including of course “Last Christmas,” released in 1984. There’s also brand new unreleased material by the legendary Grammy-winning artist, according to Universal.

“Last Christmas” co-stars Michelle Yeoh and Emma Thompson, with the latter also co-writing and co-producing the film.

The film is set for release on 8 November 2019 by Universal Pictures.

Here’s the film’s official synopsis:

Kate (Emilia 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 (Henry 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.
