From IMDb: “Edina and Patsy are still oozing glitz and glamor, living the high life they are accustomed to; shopping, drinking and clubbing their way around London’s trendiest hot-spots. Blamed for a major incident at an uber fashionable launch party, they become entangled in a media storm and are relentlessly pursued by the paparazzi. Fleeing penniless to the glamorous playground of the super-rich, the French Riviera, they hatch a plan to make their escape permanent and live the high life forever more!”

Poster Rating: C- / B-

Review: (#1) Patsy and Edina in a theater isn’t a particularly interesting selling point. AbFab fans may be interested, but the overall design is wasted. (#2) Then there’s this design which is a breath of fresh air. It’s unique and fun, though it does lack a useful backdrop.

Trailer Rating: A / C+

Review: (#1) Taking the guise of an alcohol commercial, everyone’s favorite boozing socialites are back in this incredibly amusing teaser for their upcoming film.

(#2) From an inspired teaser trailer to a boring, listless film trailer is certainly a disappointment. Absolutely Fabulous was a terrific and incredibly funny BBC series, but this trailer lacks the same level of wit and humor, which makes it look like it might be a let down for fans.

Oscar Prospects:
