Love, Christmas, and London reunite in the trailer for Paul Feig's Last Christmas, starring Emilia Clarke

Crazy Rich Asians star Henry Golding is the Natalie Portman to Emilia Clarke’s Zach Braff in Last Christmas, a soul-warming new holi-comedy that doubles as the permission you needed to put up your Christmas tree. Bridesmaids director Paul Feig helmed the romance, which comes from a script by actress Emma Thompson and playwright Byrony Kimmings.

Clarke, in her first major role post-Game Of Thrones, plays a humbuggy grinch who slacks off as an “elf” in a year-round Christmas shop. One day, she collides with Golding’s Tom, who exudes yuletide majesty and rom-com magic as he works to break down her walls and turn her life around. Thompson herself co-stars alongside Michelle Yeoh, another Crazy Rich Asians alum.
