Maybe there is a new Christmas movie coming out this year. The first trailer for a film called Christmas Eve dropped yesterday.
The film stars Patrick Stewart (Green Room), Jon Heder (Blades of Glory), Cheryl Hines (Curb Your Enthusiasm), Max Casella (Inside Llewyn Davis), and Gary Cole (Office Space).
Here’s the official synopsis:
When a power outage traps six different groups of New Yorkers inside elevators on Christmas Eve, they find that laughter, romance, and a little holiday magic will get them through – and change their lives in unexpected ways. A heartless real estate tycoon (Patrick Stewart) clings to life in a precarious construction elevator hundreds of feet off the ground. Unexpected relationships bloom for a musician (Cheryl Hines) stuck with her dysfunctional orchestra mates, as well as an aspiring fashion photographer (James Roday) confined with the introverted paralegal in his apartment building (Julianna Guill). A crass HR manager (Max Casella) trapped with an employee he just fired (Jon Heder) and a cynical doctor (Gary Cole) transporting his terminal patient are forced to reconsider the way they think about others in this all-star ensemble comedy that proves that in a city of eight million, you never know who you might get stuck with.
The film hits theaters December 4th.
