The trailer for Emma Thompson’s romcom Last Christmas has been released, and it looks to be a festive hit.

A new festive film is on the way, starring Game Of Thrones’ Emilia Clarke, Henry Golding and Emma Thompson, who also wrote the script.

The film is based around the songs of the late George Michael, who passed away on Christmas Day in 2016.

The film tells the story of a problematic young woman – Kate – living in London, whose life continues to intertwine with hunky homeless shelter worker Tom.
