First Downton Abbey Trailer Arrives

Downton Abbey is returning! Get ready, because The Crawley family are gearing up to make their big screen comeback in the company of none other than the company of the King and Queen. Fans can hardly contain their excitement for the upcoming Downton Abbey film from Focus Features and Carnival, which is set for release on September 20, 2019.

The trailer shows the Crawley family preparing to receive an unexpected visit from the royal couple, George V and Queen Mary. They’re all panicking in quite a reserved, English way, trying not to show their excitement. The corridors are bustling and the house staff can’t keep up.

It’s 1927, and all of the characters are gradually adapting to a rapidly changing society. The Dowager Countess of Grantham, played by Maggie Smith, seems to have maintained her impertinent sense of humor. The actress will be reunited with almost all of her playmates in the film,

‘Downton Abbey’ movie spoilers: When is it set, who is (and isn’t) coming back?
The “Downton Abbey” movie won’t be in theaters until September 2019 but we just got our first clues as to what to expect from the recently released trailer that you can watch above. While the TV series signed off three years ago, the film is only moving ahead about 18 months in the lives of the Crawley clan and their servants to the fall of 1927. We know that almost all of the cast of this Emmy-winning drama will be in the movie with one big exception: Lily James, who played cousin Rose, won’t be back.

Her character lives in America and while she returned to the manor for the series finale she won’t be seen on the big screen. With upwards of two dozens character to juggle, it is not surprising that series Julian Fellowes couldn’t find room for Rose in the two-hour movie update. We can confirm

What Is Boxing Day? A Quick Explainer

  • The Wrap
While Americans struggle back to work the day after Christmas, many parts of the world are celebrating the national holiday known as Boxing Day.

And no, it has nothing to do with the sport of boxing.

The term originates from 17th-century Britain and is now recognized in the U.K., Canada and other former British colonies. In Ireland, Dec. 26 is called Saint Stephen’s Day — since his feast day falls on that day in the calendar.

Will ‘The Americans’ overcome its lack of individual acting bids to win drama ensemble at the SAG Awards?

Will ‘The Americans’ overcome its lack of individual acting bids to win drama ensemble at the SAG Awards?
The good news for “The Americans”: It finally got its first Screen Actors Guild Awards nomination last week. The bad news: It only got just the one, for drama ensemble, with Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys getting shut out of the individual races. Yes, it made the cut for the big one, but does its lack of an individual nomination put it at a disadvantage?

Needless to say, the more nominations, the better, but three shows have won the drama ensemble prize without individual bids for their stars. The cast of “Six Feet Under” first achieved it in 2003, followed by the cast of “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” in 2005 and then the cast of “Lost” in 2006.

In the other 21 years, just seven times has a show won drama ensemble without a nominated star also prevailing. There have been nine instances of the winning ensemble also earning one individual acting award,
