Trailer: Amazon asks Your Christmas Or Mine?
James R | On 03, Nov 2022
Amazon Prime Video is stepping up its festive movie game this year, with the release of new comedy Your Christmas Or Mine? – and a trailer gives us a glimpse of what to expect.
The movie follows young couple James (Asa Butterfield, Sex Education) and Hayley (Newcomer, Cora Kirk), who end up having to experience each other’s family Christmas without their partners when one big surprise sends Christmas in the wrong direction.
Students Hayley and James are young and in love. After saying goodbye for Christmas at a London train station, they both make the same mad split-second decision to swap trains and surprise each other. Passing each other in the station, they are completely unaware that they have just swapped Christmases. Hayley arrives at a vast mansion in a small village in the Gloucester countryside to find a place where Christmas does not exist, whilst James heads north to a small semi-detached in Macclesfield and steps into the warm and chaotic pandemonium that only a large family Christmas can bring. When the entire country is blanketed in the biggest snowfall on record, our star-crossed lovers are trapped at the most manic time of the year. Christmas traditions are turned on their head, secrets are revealed, and family truths are told with hilarious consequences. The couple realise that there is an awful lot they don’t know about each other. Will they be able to swap back in time for Christmas Day? And will Hayley and James’ fledgling relationship make it through to the New Year?
The movie is directed by Jim O’Hanlon (Catastrophe, Trying) and features a stellar line-up of British talent, including Alex Jennings (The Crown), Harriet Walter (Killing Eve), Daniel Mays (Fisherman’s Friends), David Bradley (the Harry Potter series), Angela Griffin (White Lines), Natalie Gumede (Titans), Lucien Laviscount (Emily in Paris) and Ram John Holder (Desmond’s).
You can see them in action on 2nd December, when the film premieres on Prime Video. Here’s the trailer:
