Earlier this week, the cast and crew of “Last Christmas” brought some early joyous holiday vibes to a rainy fall day in New York City.
Last Christmas is set to open in theaters nationwide on November 8th. Directed by the extraordinary Paul Feig – the cast of the film consists of some of TV and Cinema’s favorites, including Emilia Clarke, Henry Golding, Michelle Yeoh and the iconic Emma Thompson.
“You leave this movie feeling hopefully optimistic about the future. It’s a very honest portrayal about humanity…”
Before the cast and crew took to the carpet, a choir of 4 singers sang some of the most popular Christmas songs – making the environment and space truly feel like Christmas. Publicists and journalists were all singing along – it really set the tone. Right after the choir’s performance, the cast and crew started arriving on the carpet.
“You leave this movie feeling hopefully optimistic about the future. It’s a very honest portrayal about humanity. It just lets you know that no matter how difficult the previous year might’ve been, the smallest, tiniest changes that you can make in your life that are free – will make you feel a million times better. And also that it’s ok to be complicated and messy, and human,” Emilia Clarke shared on the carpet.
Adding to the humanity and core of the film, director Paul Fieg said: “I think in these days, there’s a lot of divisiveness and a lot of negative energy around, this is the movie you need because it’s very positive, it’s very much about people, it’s about being human…”
This film promises enchantment as the audience is transported to London during one of its most magical times of the year and journeys with two people who go through some very real experiences, deal with consequences and through it all, keep the faith.
If you’re still doubting seeing this film, one of the biggest draws is that the soundtrack features music from the late George Michael, some unreleased music as well. Henry Golding shares that one of the key elements of this film “has to be George Michael…The music and the soundtrack in this thing is unbelievable… I wish he was here to enjoy it with us.”
A holiday themed after-party followed at The Loeb Boathouse Central Park.
