On playing at the Magic of Christmas, Robbie said:  “Wow, that’s a good line-up. Then I’ll definitely come.”

About Last Christmas

EMILIA CLARKE (HBO’s Game of Thrones, Me Before You), HENRY GOLDING (A Simple Favor, Crazy Rich Asians), MICHELLE YEOH (Crazy Rich Asians; Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) and two-time Oscar® winner EMMA THOMPSON (Sense and Sensibility, Saving Mr. Banks) star for director PAUL FEIG (A Simple Favor, Spy, Bridesmaids) in Last Christmas, a romantic comedy inspired by a GEORGE MICHAEL beat, from a screenplay by Academy Award® winner Thompson (Sense and Sensibility, Nanny McPhee) and writer/performer BRYONY KIMMINGS.

Kate (Clarke) harrumphs around London, a bundle of bad decisions accompanied by the jangle of bells on her shoes, another irritating consequence from her job as an elf in a year-round Christmas shop. Tom (Golding) seems too good to be true when he walks into her life and starts to see through so many of Kate’s barriers. As London transforms into the most wonderful time of the year, nothing should work for these two. But sometimes, you gotta let the snow fall where it may, you gotta listen to your heart … and you gotta have faith.

Set in London during the 2017 holiday, Last Christmas features the music of George Michael and Wham!, including the bittersweet holiday classic of the film’s title. The film also premieres brand-new unreleased material by the legendary Grammy Award-winning artist, who sold more than 115 million albums and recorded 10 No. 1 singles over the course of his iconic career.
