Last Christmas Trailer - Emilia Clarke & Henry Golding spread holiday cheer

It may only be August, but it’s not too early to start thinking about the holiday season. Not, that is, if Universal Pictures has anything to say about it. They’ve just debuted the trailer for Last Christmas, the new romantic comedy from director Paul Feig (A Simple Favor, Ghostbusters) starring Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones) and Henry Golding (Crazy Rich Asians). Check out the trailer in the player below!

A romantic comedy inspired by a George Michael beat, from a screenplay by Academy Award winner Emma Thompson (Sense and Sensibility, Bridget Jones’s Baby) and playwright Bryony Kimmings, Last christmas follows Kate (Clarke) as she 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 features the music of George Michael, including the bittersweet holiday classic of the film’s title. The film will also premiere brand new unreleased material by the legendary Grammy winning artist, who sold more than 115 million albums and recorded 10 No. 1 singles over the course of his iconic career.

Also starring Michelle Yeoh, Last Christmas produced by BAFTA winner David Livingstone for Calamity Films, by Emma Thompson, and by Paul Feig and Jessie Henderson for Feigco Entertainment. The film is executive produced by Sarah Bradshaw. Look for it to hit the big screen beginning November 8.
