Love actually is still all around! We are just under two weeks away from getting the reunion we’ve all been dreaming about! Next week, we will finally get to see our favorite Love Actually characters back together again for a reunion 14 years in the making.
The cast will be reprising their roles from the beloved 2003 film as part of NBC’s Red Nose Day telecast on May 25th. Returning for the production will be Hugh Grant, Liam Neeson, Keira Knightley, Colin Firth, Andrew Lincoln, Bill Nighy and Laura Linney, among others.
Last week, NBC released the adorable trailer for the reunion and, all those loving feelings which were sparked during the first film have come rushing back! In the trailer, we get a quick flashback refresher, highlighting scenes and plot lines from the original film before getting a glimpse of what the characters are up to all these years later. This time around, Andrew Lincoln’s character revisits Kiera Knightly with cue cards in hand but, he’s questioning the attractiveness of his newly grown, graying beard. Liam Neeson’s character is setting up to, once again, help his son Sam deal with love. Hugh Grant’s character is still dancing for joy albeit more carefully now as he seems to pull a muscle at one point and have an unfortunate mishap with a flight of stairs. And of course, Bill Nighy’s character is still one of the most awesome pop stars around. During a radio show interview, he boasts that he’s had sex with one of the Kardashians but, which one?
The trailer alone bring us immense joy and just seeing these characters back together fills us with excitement!
Check out the official trailer below and be sure to tune in for the Red Nose Day special which airs on May 25th on NBC to coincide with the United States’ designated Red Nose Day.
