In honour of April Fools Day yesterday, Fox launched a new teaser poster for their upcoming Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie, with Jane Horrocks’ Bubble channelling Kim Kardashian’s break-the-Internet magazine cover.
Kim Kardashian is expected to make an appearance in the movie herself somewhere along the way, so presumably it’s all in the name of good fun.
The studio launched a first teaser trailer just after Valentine’s Day, giving us a glimpse of Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley’s return. And we’re expecting the first proper trailer to drop pretty much any day now.
Appropriate for their big screen debut, Edina and Patsy 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 permanent their escape and live the high life forever more!
Julia Sawalha, Jane Horrocks, June Whitfield, Celia Imrie, and Kathy Burke are all back for more, reprising their roles from the TV show. And along with a cameo from Kim Kardashian, we’re also expecting to see Kate Moss, Cara Delevingne, Rebel Wilson, Emma Bunton, Gwendoline Christie, Lily Cole, Harry Styles, Joan Collins, Chris Colfer, and Jean Paul Gaultier.
Mandie Fletcher (Absolutely Fabulous, Miranda) is behind the camera here. She directs from a script that Saunders wrote.
Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie will be released in the UK on July 1st. It hits US cinemas three weeks later on July 22nd, kicking things off with a limited release.
