In what should become the latest film franchise,has released its first full-length trailer featuring the return of Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley as fabulously outrageous bffs Edina and Patsy. The duo featured on the BBC sitcom, which ended in 2012. While the ladies are back, they are in hiding after possibly, maybe killing Kate Moss. Oh, yeah, and the movie is made even more fabulous by the presence of the chic fashion model. “Kate Moss, dahling!”
As depicted in the trailer, the film sees an over-eager Edina looking to become Moss’ new PR rep when she accidentally pushes the model over a balcony into the water, possibly killing her. Now she and Patsy, because she’s such a good friend, are hiding out in the South of France, where they say “everybody’s a criminal.”
See the trailer below:
Folks like Lily Cole, Jourdan Dunn, Suki Waterhouse, Alexa Chung, Dame Edna, and Joan Collins also feature in the film, but then there are those like Jon Hamm, Rebel Wilson, and Gwendoline Christie (shown exiting a limo in a black gown). Kim Kardashian, model-turned-actress Care Delevingne (Suicide Squad), Glee’s Chris Colfer, and Emma “Baby Spice” Bunton also pop up among the cast. Let’s raise our glass of champagne (with crushed Xanax around the rim) and hope Edina and Patsy have a long life on the silver screen.
Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie will hit theaters on July 22. Here’s the official synopsis:
Appropriate for their big screen debut, Edina and Patsy (Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley) are still oozing glitz and glamour, living the high life they are accustomed to; shopping, drinking and clubbing their way around London’s trendiest hotspots. Blamed for a major incident at an uber fashionable launch party, they become entangled in a media storm and are relentlessly pursued by the paparazzi. Fleeing penniless to the glamorous playground of the super-rich, the French Riviera, they hatch a plan to make their escape permanent and live the high life forever more!
