Edina and Patsy are back with a vengeance, taking to the big screen (and, it seems, the life of an international supermodel) in the new Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie international trailer.
In the film, Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley reprise their roles as prominent fashion industry figures Edina and Patsy from the popular British comedy series, which ran for an initial three season from 1992-1995. Several specials, including a three-episode run leading up to the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, have aired since 1996.
The trailer shows the duo possibly killing Kate Moss after a scuffle with Edina and Patsy leads to her accidentally plunging into the River Thames. The world soon turns against the pair, with Edina (Saunders) delighting in her newfound status as a “pariah,” which she admittedly thinks is the name of a fish. Stella McCartney also makes an appearance, throwing a brick through Edina’s window as retribution for what happened to Moss.
In addition to Moss and McCartney, the trailer features cameos from a wide range of film and fashion stars, including scenes which see Patsy (Lumley) attempting to woo Mad Men‘s Jon Hamm and getting tased by Rebel Wilson while on an airplane.
Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie hits select U.S. theaters via Fox Searchlight on July 22. Watch the new trailer in the video above.
