Almost Christmas trailer: Danny Glover begs for a drama-free holiday

Posted on

It isn’t even Christmas in July yet, but a new Almost Christmas trailer is here to spread some (very early) holiday cheer.

Danny Glover stars in the festive upcoming comedy as a patriarch and recent widower whose only Christmas wish is to spend five days with his family — with minimal mayhem. But as the new trailer reveals, having all those family members under one house is a recipe for disaster, and his plans are soon derailed by a jealous wife with a shotgun, a macaroni mishap, and a decapitated plastic Santa.

David E. Talbert (Baggage Claim) wrote and directed Almost Christmas, and the ensemble cast includes Kimberly Elise, John Michael Higgins, Romany Malco, Mo’Nique, JB Smoove, Gabrielle Union, Omar Epps, Nicole Ari Parker, Jessie T. Usher, and DC Young Fly.

Almost Christmas will ring in the holiday season when it hits theaters on Nov. 11.
