Watch Cameo-Filled First Trailer for ‘Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie’

Jon Hamm, Kate Moss and Rebel Wilson pop up in big-screen revival of cult BBC comedy series

The cast of the cult British comedy Absolutely Fabulous will reunite after a four-year hiatus for a feature-length film titled simply Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie. The first trailer sets up the revival’s plot as Jennifer Saunders’ PR agent Edina Monsoon and Joanna Lumley’s Patsy Stone go on the run and (possibly) killing model Kate Moss.

The trailer hints at just some of the all-star cameos that will frequent the glamorous world of Absolutely Fabulous with Moss, Jon Hamm and, as a flight attendant, Rebel Wilson. It’s been reported that Kim Kardashian, One Direction’s Harry Styles, Cara Delevingne and a horde of fashion world luminaries will also make cameos.

Absolutely Fabulous originally aired for three seasons and a pair of specials on BBC 2 between 1992 and 1996. The cult following that grew out of the series and its stars – Patsy and Edina were recently named to Rolling Stone‘s 50 Best TV Duos of All Time list – helped get two seasons and two specials of an Absolutely Fabulous revival between 2001 and 2004. The duo aired three more specials in 2011 and 2012 to celebrate the show’s 20th anniversary.

Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie opens in the U.S. July 22nd.
