If you were a fan of the original then this new trailer for the Love Actually reunion film Red Nose Day Actually will make you smile, and not just because Andrew Lincoln now looks more like Rick Grimes than his original placard carrying character Mark.
Writer-director Richard Curtis and most of the cast of the original holiday film (with the notable exception of the late great Alan Rickman) have come together again for the new specially commissioned short film that will air as part of The Red Nose Day Special on May 25 on NBC and March 24’s Red Nose Day in the U.K. on BBC1.
From an original script by Curtis, the founder of Red Nose Day, the short film revisits the characters of the 2003 film Love Actually to discover what they’re up to 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.
For the third year of Red Nose Day in the U.S., 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 U.S. in 2015.
