Michelle Yeoh, Emma Thompson, Emilia Clarke and Henry Golding are the stars of new comedy / romance Last Christmas, the latest from Spy (2015) and Bridesmaids (2011) director director Paul Feig.

At the centre of the story is a Kate, a young woman subscribed to bad decisions. After accepting a job as Santa’s elf for a department store, Kate soon meets Tom there and her life takes a turn that seems too good to be true….

After realising the similarity between Clarke and her character Kate’s story, Last Christmas has become even more intriguing. As such, I’ve now decided that I’m going to ignore the cheesy line that made me wince a little after 2.35minutes into thw above trailer and just look forward to Christmas. Reason being, that is precisely when the mood for a film just like this tends to hit me; HARD!

The fact that George Michaels music will be featured quite heavily is a plus is is the London, England setting.

Patti LuPone, Nasir Jama, Ingrid Oliver, Ansu Kabia, Sue Perkins, Lydia Leonard, Rebecca Root, David Mumeni, Helena Holmes and Jade Anouka also star.

Last Christmas Release Dates: November 8th, 2019 (US); November 15th, 2019 (UK)…

Read my spoiler-free movie review of Late Night (2019).


Late Night is a new comedy / drama starring Emma Thompson, Mindy Kaling, Megalyn Echikunwoke and Amy Ryan.

Directed by Nisha Ganatra; at the centre of Late Night is talk show host Katherine (Thompson). Katherine is convinced that she may soon be losing her long-running show…

The comedy, the two actors and the fun dynamic between them is my reason for watching.

Ike Barinholtz, Hugh Dancy, Paul Walter Hauser, John Lithgow, Max Casella, Denis O’Hare and Reid Scott also star.

Late Night Release Dates: June 7th, 2019 (US & UK)…

Written by Ian McEwan and directed by Richard Eyre (Love, Actually (2003), The Children Act stars Emma Thompson as a High Court judge who must decide whether or not to force a teenage boy to have the blood transfusion that will save his life.

Other key cast includes Stanley Tucci, Fionn Whitehead, Nikki Amuka-Bird, Ben Chaplin

I like Thompson and the plot is interesting. I also know how a Jehovah’s Witness / blood transfusion storyline was handled on Grey’s Anatomy but… how will they do it here?

The Children Act Release Dates: August 24th, 2018 (UK)…
