Watch a Trailer For ‘LOVE ACTUALLY’ Red Nose Day Special!

May 11, 2017

Writer and director Richard Curtis released his 2003 hit Love Actually, and now he has released a short film titled RED NOSE DAY ACTUALLY. The special will air as part of the annual Comic Relief event on May 25 on NBC. And now the trailer has been released and can be seen down below!

From an original script by Curtis, the Red Nose Day Actually special film revisits the characters of the 2003 film to discover what they have been up in 2017.

Revisiting their roles from the beloved movie are cast members Hugh Grant, Martine McCutcheon, Keira Knightley, Andrew Lincoln, Colin Firth, Lucia Moniz, Liam Neeson, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Olivia Olson, Bill Nighy, Marcus Brigstocke and Rowan Atkinson. Patrick Dempsey also has a role in the special.

Curtis said about the short film:

“Over the years I’ve enjoyed doing Red Nose Day specials of TV things I’ve worked on. BLACKADDER, THE VICAR OF DIBLEY and MR. BEAN. It seemed like a fun idea this year to do a special sketch based one of my films, since Red Nose Day is now in both the UK and America. I would never have dreamt of writing a sequel to LOVE ACTUALLY, but I thought it might be fun to do 10 minutes to see what everyone is now up to. Who has aged best?– I guess that’s the big question… or is it so obviously Liam? We’ve been delighted and grateful that so many of the cast are around and able to take part– and it’ll certainly be a nostalgic moment getting back together and recreating their characters 14 years later. We hope to make something that’ll be fun– very much in the spirit of the original film and of Red Nose Day– and which we hope will bring lots of viewers and cash to the Red Nose Day shows.”

For the third consecutive year in the US of Red Nose Day, Americans across the country will come together, wear their Red Noses (available exclusively at Walgreens and Duane Reade locations nationwide), and raise money and awareness to help children living in poverty in America and around the world. With the support of millions of generous Americans, major partners and hundreds of celebrities, Red Nose Day has raised more than $60 million in its first two years since launching in the US in 2015.
