The last twelve months have been big business for the movie musical with Bohemian Rhapsody and Rocketman among those packing audiences in. There’s a seasonal flavour to the latest in this burgeoning genre, with the music of George Michael and WHAM! being the basis for Last Christmas. The film had its UK premiere this evening in London, and we were there to chat the cast and crew.
The film stars Game of Thrones’ Emilia Clarke, Crazy Rich Asians’ Henry Golding, Emma Thompson (who co-wrote the film and screenplay along with Greg Wise and Bryony Kimmings), Michelle Yeoh, Lydia Leonard, Maxim Baldry, Patti LuPone and Margaret Clunie. The film was directed by Paul Feig and produced by David Livingstone.

Last Christmas is out in US cinemas on the 8th of November and in the UK on the 15th of November.
