The first teaser for the upcoming “Absolutely Fabulous” movie promises plenty of cocktails, handsome men and the French Riviera for the iconic duo of Eddie and Patsy.
“Straight up on the rocks and always with a twist,” says the voiceover. “When you must have the best, be sure to choose something cool, something refreshing, something absolutely fabulous.”
Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley starred in the BBC series of the same name, which first aired from 1992 to 1995, and then from 2001 to 2004, along with TV specials for Christmas 2011 and the London Olympics in 2012.
The movie follows the women shopping, drinking and clubbing their way around London’s trendiest hot spots until they’re blamed for a major incident at a launch party, become entangled in a media storm and flee penniless to the Cote d’Azur.
Julia Sawalha, June Whitfield and Jane Horrocks also star in the film. Mandie Fletcher is directing the movie from a script by Saunders. Jon Plowman and Damian Jones are producing, with Steve Milne, Christian Eisenbeiss, Christine Langan, Nichola Martin, Saunders, Dawn French and Maureen Vincent serving as executive producers.
Fox Searchlight’s “Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie” has not yet been set for release in the U.S.
