Sky today released the official trailer for Last Train to Christmas, coming to Sky Cinema and streaming service NOW from 18 December.
Starring BAFTA®-nominated Michael Sheen (Good Omens, The Queen, Quiz) and Nathalie Emmanuel (Game of Thrones, Fast & Furious 7), the story follows Tony Towers (Michael Sheen) as he takes a trip of a lifetime. It’s 1985 and he’s a successful nightclub manager, a local celebrity and engaged to a much younger woman, Sue (Nathalie Emmanuel). Things are going great. But when Tony, Sue and his brother Roger (Cary Elwes) – with whom he enjoys a strained relationship - embark upon the 3:17 to Nottingham for a Christmas family reunion, things get a little strange. Moving up a carriage to the buffet car lands him in 1995, where he finds his clubs have failed and his life has fallen apart. Tony discovers that by moving up and down this fateful train, he can transport himself forward and backward to various stages of his life. Not only that, but the actions he takes in one carriage directly affect his life in the next. The question is, can Tony change his life – and the lives of the people he loves - for the better, or will he just make things worse?
Last Train to Christmas also features appearances from Katherine Kelly (Innocent, Criminal, Gentleman Jack) and Anna Lundberg (Staged, Essex).
Written and directed by Julian Kemp, produced by Sky, Future Artists Entertainment and Stigma Films. Produced by Matt Williams for Future Artists Entertainment and Matthew James Wilkinson for Stigma Films.
Last Train to Christmas will be released on Sky Cinema this Christmas. The film will also be available on streaming service NOW via the Sky Cinema Membership.
