Love Actually 2: Sequel movie trailer reveals character lives in British flick

Love Actually 2” isn’t the next romantic comedy that’s started trending in top news searches recently, but a fan-made movie trailer which in fact serves as a realistic sequel to the hit, “Love Actually.” It reveals the original flick’s characters’ lives — their actors, that is — 10 years after its premiere, and has gone absolutely viral in just a few days, earning 170,000 YouTube views already and counting, UPI.com reports this Thursday, Dec. 12, 2013.

The relatively brief clip, titled on YouTube with the apt name “Love Actually 2,” was originally posted via Official Comedy and continues to spark smiles and interest among fans of the older film. The movie trailer presents such actors that starred in the “prequel” 10 years later, including Liam Neeson, Andrew Lincoln, Martin Freeman, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Keira Knightley, Bill Nighy, Colin Firth, and Thomas Sangster.

A variety of clips and popular movie scenes in the 170,000 viewed video that were mashed together from these talented actors’ more recent projects seem to show the older characters in their “new lives.” Some of the films the fan-made trailer draw from include “Taken,” “Children of Men,” “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey,” “The Walking Dead,” and “The King’s Speech.”

Both Emma Thompson and Alan Rickman are also quickly recognized in the trailer as “Love Actually” characters 10 years later, both portrayed as more aged actors in the “Harry Potter” movie franchise.

"I am very amused and alarmed by how famous the cast of 'Love Actually' have become because that movie was, in a way, deliberately cast with some not famous people and some famous people," "Love Actually" writer-director Richard Curtis told United Press International in New York recently.

"The fact that Martin Freeman is now in 'The Hobbit,' and Keira Knightley has become so famous. Andrew is in 'The Walking Dead' and even the little boy is in 'Game of Thrones.' That's quite odd. I think if you try to find good actors, the chances that they'll go on and do well, do go up."

Here's the trailer link.

For fans of the original British Christmas film, “Love Actually 2” would no doubt be on many people’s must-watch film lists. Would you like to see this fan made sequel trailer come to fruition on the big screen?
