Last Christmas is an upcoming British-American romantic comedy film directed by Paul Feig and written by Bryony Kimmings and Emma Thompson, who co wrote the story with her husband, Greg Wise. It stars Emilia Clarke, Henry Golding, Michelle Yeoh, and Thompson, and follows a depressed woman who works in a Christmas supplies store who keeps bumping into the same man.
In the trailer Emilia Clarke’s Kate is a down on luck cynical woman who works as an elf in a year round shop. She runs into Henry Golding’s Tom repeatedly and over time, he helps her find her Christmas spirit again. Kate opens up to Tom about being nearly sick and dying which led to her being the cynical mess that she is. Through the trailer we see Kate growing closer to her family, volunteering at the homeless shelter, and falling for Tom.
On 31 October 2019, Thompson and Wise are scheduled to publish a collection of personal essays about the meaning of Christmas in a book also called Last Christmas. Contributors include Andy Serkis, Caitlin Moran, Olivia Colman and Emily Watson. The proceeds from the book will go to two charities, Crisis and The Refugee Council. The film is still scheduled to release on 15 November 2019 in the United Kingdom
Summer is coming to a close meaning ’tis the time to prepare for the holiday season and upcoming romantic comedy ‘Last Christmas’ is set to bring the Christmas cheer. Starring ‘Game of Thrones’ star Emilia Clarke and ‘Crazy Rich Asians’ actor Henry Golding, ‘Last Christmas’ is already sparking many theories from viewers as to the fate of its lead characters.
The movie, named after the song by George Michael’s English pop duo Wham!, will also feature previously unreleased music from the late singer.
Additionally, since the lyrics of the eponymous song goes “Last Christmas, I gave you my heart”, fans are theorizing that Tom is a ghost, whose heart was transplanted into Kate when she was sick and nearly died.
