Trailer For New Year's Eve Online
Colossal cast gets festive

Trailer For New Year's Eve Online

Don't mess with serendipity. When you've had a massive international hit with a holiday-specific ensemble rom-dram-com, it's only natural to follow it up with another. Here's the newly-arrived trailer for New Year's Eve, the spiritual sequel to Valentine's Day. Darren Lynn Bousman's Mother's Day is not part of this sequence.

New Year's Eve gives us another set of intertwining stories, set this time in New York rather than LA. While obviously sharing Valentine's Day's DNA (it's once again written by Katherine Fugate and directed by Garry Marshall), it's not a sequel in the usual sense, with the returning Ashton Kutcher and Jessica Biel paying different characters to the last time.

Biel's character is pregnant and trying to win a prize for being first to give birth on New Year's Day. Michelle Pfeiffer is a downtrodden secretary making an extra effort with her resolutions. Hilary Swank is a TV producer organising a big New Year's Eve show. Robert De Niro is facing a tearjerking terminal illness. Katherine Heigl is a caterer being forced to work all night: a role that was originally earmarked for Halle Berry. And Halle Berry, who left but then came back, ended up playing a Manhattan nurse. And Jon Bon Jovi is a rockstar. He's versatile, that Jon Bon Jovi.

Elsewhere in that cor-blimey cast we've also got Ice Cube, Josh Duhamel, Zac Efron, Carla Gugino, Alyssa Milano, Sarah Jessica Parker, Sienna Miller, Ludacris, Sofia Vergara, Greg Kinnear, Cam Gigandet and Meg Ryan. All the feel-good festivities kick off on December 9.
