Bring out the tissues, there’s a new romantic comedy movie coming to theaters. Throw in Game of Thrones’ Emilia Clarke, Crazy Rich Asian’ Henry Golding, and a gorgeous Christmas setting and you have a movie ready to kick off the holiday season. Who else stars in Last Christmas? When does this movie premiere in cinemas worldwide? What are fans on social media saying about this upcoming film? Here’s what we know about Last Christmas.
The upcoming holiday movie, ‘Last Christmas,’ stars Emilia Clarke and Henry Golding
The two stars of this upcoming movie are Emilia Clarke and Henry Golding. Emilia Clarke, known for her performance in Game of Thrones, now plays one of the lead roles, Kate. Game of Thrones actor, Henry Golding portrays the other lead, named Tom.
According to Showbiz Cheat Sheet, “Clarke is Kate, an apathetic Londoner who works as an elf at a Christmas shop. She can’t seem to please anyone, from her employer to her mother (Thompson’s Adelia), and she just keeps ending up in bad situations. One day, Kate meets Tom. Tom is a kind, goofy stranger who is genuinely interested in learning about her.” Presumably, there will be some kind of twist to this holiday tale. However, not much has been revealed about this upcoming film.
‘Bridesmaids’ director, Paul Feig, worked on the set of ‘Last Christmas’
Emma Thompson, the woman behind movies like Nanny McPhee and Love Actually wrote this upcoming movie, Last Christmas. This film stars Emilia Clarke and Henry Golding and is directed by Bridesmaids’ Paul Feig. During an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Paul Feig commented on what drew him to the screenplay for Last Christmas.
“It’s not necessarily about, ‘I’ve gotta find a husband, I’ve gotta find someone to complete my life,'” Paul Feig said. “I much more like movies about people who have to straighten their own lives out, and then once they do, then the real prize at the end of the film is that you’ve actually fixed your life and put yourself in a better place.”
When does ‘Last Christmas’ come out?
There’s nothing quite like a romance movie to get people in the Christmas spirit. Last Christmas premieres in theaters worldwide this November. With the first showing only a few days away, fans are already excited to see this Emilia Clarke and Henry Golding movie.
“So is that really Emilia Clarke singing in Last Christmas because she isn’t allowed to be this … good at everything,” one Twitter user said.
“Emilia and Henry have such an amazing dynamic and so much chemistry, I really can’t wait to see Last Christmas,” wrote another Twitter user.
There’s no word regarding whether or not this movie will be available on streaming platforms like HBO Go, Hulu, or Disney Plus. However, holiday favorites like Christmas with the Kranks, White Christmas, and How the Grinch Stole Christmas are available on Netflix.
