HBO Max’s Holiday Movies Show New Trailers
It looks like we just gave up and celebrated the winter holidays before Thanksgiving. HBO Max is the latest to jump on the early winter holiday bandwagon, releasing trailers for three upcoming original holiday movies – two of which will arrive on the streaming service on November 24, 2022.
Holiday Harmony with Annelise Cepero and Jeremy Sumpter and A Christmas mystery with Eddie Cibrian and Violet McGraw premiering on Thanksgiving. A Hollywood Christmas about a filmmaker who makes Christmas movies will debut on December 1.
The streaming service also released details on the three ho-ho-ho holiday movies:
Singer/songwriter Gail (Annelise Cepero) lands an opportunity to compete for a once-in-a-lifetime hit at the big time, and heads cross-country — only going as far as Harmony Springs, Oklahoma when her commute, her budget, and all his hopes are dashed. With just two weeks to get to the Christmas Eve performance of her dreams on iHeartRadio, she follows the advice of local jack-of-all-trades, Jeremy (Jeremy Sumpter), and confronts a group of misfit kids who hope to produce at Christmas. Eve Gala of their own. Gail and Jeremy grow closer, but if she wants to achieve her life’s dream, she may have to leave him and the town she’s come to love.
A Christmas mystery
One hundred years ago, a bunch of Santa’s magic bells were discovered by a young boy in Pleasant Bay, Oregon, bringing about a century of prosperity and peace to the small town. Now, a few days before Christmas, the bells – the lifeblood of the town – are missing, and it’s up to a group of intrepid children to solve the case, find the bells and restore the magic of Christmas to Pleasant Bay and its citizens.
A Hollywood Christmas
Jessica (Jessika Van) is a young, up-and-coming filmmaker in Hollywood who has made a name for herself making Christmas movies. But when handsome network executive Christopher (Josh Swickard) shows up threatening to shut down production on his latest film, Jessica’s assistant Reena (Anissa Borrego) points out the irony: Jessica isn’t just trying to save her Christmas movie, she actually lives in one! Jessica must now juggle all the classic tropes — actors who fall in love and fall in love, a temperamental elf dog, and her own stirring romantic feelings for her perceived enemy — in order for her film and her life to have a happy ending.
Is there enough Christmas magic to pull it off? At Hollywood ? In July? The film also stars Riley Dandy, Zak Steiner, Tom Williamson and Missi Pyle.
