Lindsay Lohan’s Netflix Christmas Film Trailer ‘Falling for Christmas’ Will Change Cinema As We Know It

In case you, like me, are a millennial simply on the perimeter of Gen Z, Christmas has come early this morning, within the type of the primary trailer for Netflix’s extremely anticipated new vacation movie, Falling for Christmas. However this isn’t simply any outdated, tacky Netflix Christmas film dumped on the streamer alongside the handfuls of different originals annually. This one’s received a secret weapon, a presence so fascinating that not even Netflix’s trusty Vanessa Hudgens can compete. It’s the world’s most tenacious redhead: Lindsay Lohan.

That’s proper. You heard me! Seize your iPod traditional. Open up your home windows to sing to the birds. The solar is shining and we’ve turned again the clock to a far easier time. It’s 2006. The Daybreak of the Lohanaissance is upon us. Rejoice, rejoice, Emmanuel (or no matter they are saying in that one music; I don’t know—it wasn’t on both of Lindsay Lohan’s two studio albums)!

Falling for Christmas is Lohan’s first main movie function since 2013’s much-maligned (and misunderstood) The Canyons—in case you don’t depend her 2019 werewolf D-movie, Among the many Shadows, which nobody does. Netflix clearly is aware of that her return to the display can be a deal with for viewers, as evidenced by Lohan whipping a sleep masks off her face to disclose herself within the trailer’s intro, which I assume would elicit hooting and hollering if this have been to play in theaters.

Lohan stars within the movie as Sierra Belmont, a pampered resort heiress who’s fed up together with her titanium-card standing. “When folks have a look at me, all they see is the spoiled daughter of a resort magnate,” she laments within the trailer’s opening. “I simply need folks to recollect me for greater than my final identify!”

When Sierra’s boyfriend proposes to her on a luxurious ski journey on the prime of a windy mountain, she evidently will get her want. Whereas he’s on one knee, she’s blown down the slopes by a gust of wind. Don’t you simply hate when that occurs? When she wakes up, her reminiscence is totally gone. With nowhere to go, an area, blue-collar lodge proprietor (Chord Overstreet) provides to place Sierra up till, hopefully, somebody finds her to remind her of who she is.

If that appears like Overboard on the slopes, it’s as a result of it’s. However what’s unsuitable with that? Nicole Kidman involves an AMC theater for magic, and I come to Netflix through the holidays for heat, acquainted tales I’ve seen 1,000 instances earlier than. And that’s precisely what we’re getting right here, with a Christmas tree on each nook, copious quantities of faux snow, and sufficient crimson flannel to wrap the Taj Mahal.

As time goes on, Sierra begins to understand that possibly the straightforward comforts are all she actually needs in life. “Typically, you possibly can’t rush issues,” Lohan says within the trailer, slow-dancing with Overstreet, who stays anonymous within the clip. That is the Lohan present, we’ll get to you in Trailer 2, blondie!

However for what it’s value, Lohan and Overstreet’s chemistry is already off the charts. They did work collectively in a single episode of Glee, in spite of everything, and a Ryan Murphy-forged bond lasts eternally, whether or not you prefer it or not. Nonetheless, Lohan steals each body of this trailer, immediately reminding us of why she was such a star within the early aughts. It seems she hasn’t misplaced a lick of that magnetism, displaying off some fabulous comedian timing and her bodily comedy chops within the trailer.

High all of it off with the Imply Ladies-sized wink of a jazzy “Jingle Bell Rock” cowl (that I’m 99.3% certain is being sung by Lohan), and Falling for Christmas would possibly simply have essentially the most heartwarming trailer of the yr.

Seeing Lohan bounce by way of a lighthearted romantic comedy, a la Simply My Luck, is exactly what the physician ordered. However whether or not it’ll be sufficient for Sierra Belmont to get well her reminiscence is a query that solely Falling for Christmas can reply when it arrives on Netflix November 10.
