The summer is sadly over and we’re starting to get fall/holiday feature films.
One of the more interesting holiday films on the way is Paul Feig’s holiday romantic comedy Last Christmas starring Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones), Henry Golding (Crazy Rich Asians), and Emma Thompson.
There is some early box office tracking for Last Christmas via BoxOfficePro, which suggests a possible $15 million with a range of $12-17 million.
This would place the film in a range similar to Feig’s previous release a Simple Favor, however, that projection will likely get an uptick when marketing kicks into high-gear next month.
As the title would suggest there is a connection to George Michael as it will feature his (along with Wham!) throughout the movie.
Last Christmas is set by Universal Pictures for release on November 8th.
The studio also dropped a new international trailer recently.
Emilia Clarke (HBO’s Game of Thrones), Henry Golding (A Simple Favor, Crazy Rich Asians), Michelle Yeoh and Emma Thompson star for director Paul Feig (A Simple Favor, Spy, Bridesmaids) in Last Christmas, a romantic comedy inspired by a George Michael beat, from a screenplay by Academy Award® winner Thompson (Sense and Sensibility, Bridget Jones’s Baby) and playwright Bryony Kimmings.
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.
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.
