Britain's biggest celebration of cinematic greatness is this weekend, so what's going to happen on the night?
Joanna Lumley may be something of a national treasure, but whoever was writing her jokes as she presented last night’s BAFTAs truly and wholly let the side down. It seemed to imply that Hart’s downfall had something to do with Twitter. Steve Coogan was seen visibly flinching as the gags landed with thump and after thump.
The Red Sparrow star was rather embarrassed by the BAFTA host's enthusiastic introduction.
‘Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie’ has notched up the biggest UK box office opening since last year’s Bond movie 'Spectre’. “We are thrilled that audiences have embraced Edina and Patsy’s big screen debut - it is a testament to Jennifer, Joanna and the talented team behind the film who really are absolutely fabulous,” said Cameron Saunders of the UK branch of Twentieth Century Fox. “While the apocalypse continues in the real world, Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie remains gloriously Botoxed in a time that austerity forgot, still drenched in Bollinger and bad behaviour,” said Kate Muir in The Times.
Well, allow us to introduce the Chambong, a new invention that combines the elegance of a champagne flute with the fast delivery system of a bong that allows you to do just that. Watch the rest of our interview with the ‘Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie’ stars tasting champagne below.
What’s the one thing Patsy and Eddie, the stars of ‘Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie’, cannot live without? With that in mind, Yahoo Movies wanted to test the palates of Joanna Lumley and Jennifer Saunders to see if they could taste the difference between a premium and a budget champagne. Armed with three posh fizz brands and three supermarket own-brands, we hit the junket for a blind taste test (despite the knowledge that they actually substitute champagne with ginger ale on set) and you can watch the predictably hilarious results above.
Break open the Bolly, the reviews for the ‘Absolutely Fabulous’ movie are in, and so far they’re really rather glowing. Like a beacon in the post-Brexit gloom, Eddie and Pats appear to have pulled off bringing the veteran BBC sitcom to the big screen, a full 13 years after its last proper series. - Why is Keanu Reeves at Parliament?
It’s always been rumoured – with titillating hints here and there – but now it’s official: Patsy Stone is transgender. Joanna Lumley has confirmed that her character from BBC sitcom ‘Absolutely Fabulous’ was once a man. Patsy’s past as a man is something that Jennifer Saunders’ character Eddy Monsoon has referred to in the show in the past, notably the time in Morocco in 1971 when Patsy was said to have had a sex change operation.
Get the Stolly on ice, fetch the Bolly from the fridge and get a fag on… the first trailer for ‘Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie’ has arrived in a hail of flash bulbs.
Time to crack open the Bolly darling as the ‘Absolutely Fabulous’ movie has been given an official release date. ‘Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie’, to give it its full title, will hit UK cinemas on 1 July 2016 where it’ll go head to head with Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson’s new comedy ‘Central Intelligence’. Jennifer Saunders has written the script for the movie.
