The Full Trailer for the Love Actually Sequel Is Here
The full trailer for the Love Actually sequel, aka Red Nose Day Actually, is here!
It's a glorious extended version of the first teaser from last week, which showed Andrew Lincoln's lovelorn creeper Mark holding up cue cards teasing the 10-minute Comic Relief special. Here, almost all of your returning faves are on hand to hold up their own cue cards, including Keira Knightley, Hugh Grant, Liam Neeson, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Bill Nighy, Martine McCutcheon, and Thomas Brodie-Sangster (who is now grown up and hot, FYI). Combined with the original Love Actually score playing in the background, there are just a lot of feelings happening here.Written and directed by Richard Curtis, the short film revisits Love Actually's characters to discover what they're up to in 2017, 14 years on from the original film. One major player who will be sitting out the revival is Emma Thompson, whose on-screen husband was played by the late Alan Rickman. “[Director Richard Curtis] wrote to me and said, ‘Darling, we can't write anything for you because of Alan Rickman,’ and I said, ‘No, of course, it would be sad, too sad,'" Emma told the Press Association. "We thought and thought, but it just seemed wrong. It was absolutely the right decision."
Red Nose Day Actually airs in the U.K. this Friday, March 24, so we are hoping we will get to see more of it online soon!
