It’s the Trailer for the ‘Love Actually’ Mini Reunion/Sequel to Benefit Red Nose Day

Airing as part of NBC’s Red Nose Day on May 25, Red Nose Day Actually features several cast members from the original 2003 film Love Actually reprise their roles. Among whom include Hugh Grant, Liam Neeson, Keira Knightley, Colin Firth, a bearded Andrew Lincoln, and Laura Linney, among others.

Check out the utterly delightful trailer here:


Sadly missing is Alan Rickman, who passed away early last year. Emma Thompson has confirmed that she will not be returning, as she was a close friend of Rickman’s and also played her husband in the original film.

The Love Actually short sequel is only a about 10 minutes long, showing how the characters have changed since the original movie, which was released 14 years ago.

But most things seem to have remained the same. Hugh Grant still enjoys dancing in his home. Andrew Lincoln still loves speaking via poster cards. Bill Nighy is still shacking up with pop culture icons.

Red Nose Day, which originated in the UK, and eventually made its way over to the States (naturally), is a fundraising event organized by Comic Relief every other year.

It culminates with a telethon (hosted by Chris Hardwick), featuring music, comedy, and moving documentary films. Red Nose Day unites the entire world in trying to make a difference to the lives of thousands of people across the globe who are facing terrible injustice or living in desperate poverty.

The Love Actually follow-up will air on Thursday, May 25 on NBC to coincide with the United States’ Red Nose Day.

Michael E. Fromm is an all-around scrivener, writing screenplays (short and feature), short stories, novels, poetry, blogs, articles, and press releases. Since first learning to hold a pen, he has done little but read, watch, and write about characters and worlds of fantasy. It would be very difficult to find him without a pen in hand and an idea in mind, which is problematic for anyone wanting to have a conversation with him. Michael graduated from Rowan University, primarily focusing on improving his skills as a filmmaker and screenwriter. After said schooling, he joined an elite force of Rowan grads who also had the notion of becoming filmmakers. This group, known as Justice Productions, call on him every so often to write short films. And, until this whole writing thing pays off, Michael currently does development & marketing communication (writing, graphic & publication design, social media and website upkeep, etc.) for a web development company in Central New Jersey, where he currently resides.
