Teaser: “Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie”

Fox Searchlight Pictures and BBC Films have posted the new teaser trailer for the “Absolutely Fabulous” movie, a full-on feature that reunites the cast of the classic British sitcom.

Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley reprise their iconic roles of Edina Monsoon and Patsy Stone in the film which also sees the return of Julia Sawalha as Saffy, Jane Horrocks as Bubble and June Whitfield as Mother.

The new trailer plays more like a high-class drink commercial and teases the film’s storyline – Edina and Patsy have been blamed for a major incident at a launch party. To escape the media storm, they head off to the French Riviera to hatch a plan to make their escape permanent and live the high life forever more.

Varioius A-list stars from the acting, music and fashion worlds are expected to show up in the film which Mandie Fletcher helms from a script by Jennifer Saunders. The film opens July 1st.
