The debut trailer for the new holiday romcom Last Christmas barely dropped before the internet was abuzz over the plot twist that may be hiding in plain sight.
While I won’t divulge that potential spoiler speculation, it almost seems as if the trailer wants us to make the magical assumption (emphasized by another possible hint: the tagline on the poster, seen below). If so, my hunch is that the twist may actually be revealed early on in the film or eventually subverted.
Scripted by (and co-starring) Emma Thompson, who was inspired by the Wham! Christmas tune of the same name, Last Christmas brings Game of Thrones‘ Emilia Clarke — who plays a struggling store elf at a year-round Christmas store — together with Crazy Rich Asians hunk Henry Golding, and their charm alone should hopefully overcome any possible predictability.
Directed by Paul Feig (Bridesmaids), Last Christmas opens this fall on November 8, 2019.
