love actually sequel

We’ll probably never get a proper sequel to the 2003 romantic comedy gem Love Actually, but we’ll make do with a ten-minute short film starring many of the original cast members that was produced to raise money for Comic Relief’s Red Nose Day. The new trailer for this project, titled Red Nose Day Actually, is here and it shows off many members of the original cast…and asks you to decide which of them has aged the best.

Love Actually 2 Photos - Red Nose Day Actually

Last month, the day after Valentine’s Day, we learned that the ensemble romantic comedy Love Actually was getting a sequel. Sort of. Instead of being a feature film reunion, the cast of the film from director Richard Curtis was reuniting for a short film in honor of the charitable initiative by Comic Relief known as Red Nose Day.

The Love Actually sequel is called Red Nose Day Actually, and the short is in production right now and will debut later this month on TV. For those who can’t wait to get a glimpse of the sequel, Red Nose Day program director Emma Freud has been on set, and she’s revealed out first look at the returning cast. There’s Hugh Grant, who is still Prime Minister and still married to the lovely Martine McCutcheon, Liam Neeson and his much older son played by Thomas Brodie-Sangster, and Rowan Atkinson who is still taking his sweet time at the check out counter.

‘Johnny English Reborn’ Trailer

I probably have no business writing about the trailer for Johnny English Reborn, as I have never seen the original 2003 spy comedy. But it seems simple enough — Rowan Atkinson returns to reprising his role as “the accidental secret agent who doesn’t know fear or danger” in an adventure which puts him against “international assassins hunting down the Chinese premier.” I loved watching Atkinson as Mr. Bean when I was much younger. That show was is probably the closest thing to the Three Stooges that my generation had (am I missing anything that might be closer in comparison?). I’m generally not a fan of the action-comedy genre as a whole, and especially hate films where we’re forced to follow and cheer on bumbling idiots. So its probably better that I avoid this franchise. Watch the trailer embedded after the jump. Please leave your thoughts in the comments below.

Anyone clamoring for a sequel the 2003 comedy Johnny English is in luck. Not only is Johnny English Reborn now shooting in the United Kingdom, but it will now co-star Gillian Anderson (The X-Files), Dominic West (The Wire), Rosamund Pike (Die Another Day) and Daniel Kaluuya alongside Rowan Atkinson as the title character. It’ll be directed by Oliver Parker (The Importance of Being Earnest).

Johnny English is character that sort of blends Mr. Bean and James Bond in a spoof of the spy genre. Read more about the project after the jump. Read More »
