Return to the Estate in a Teaser Trailer for 'Downton Abbey' The Movie
You are cordially invited to return to Downton Abbey. Focus Features has debuted the first official teaser trailer for the Downton Abbey movie, which is opening in theaters next September. Not much is known about the plot of the feature film, but obviously it will continue with more stories of the Crawley family and the servants who worked for them at the turn of the 20th century in an Edwardian English country house. The original cast all returns: Maggie Smith, Michelle Dockery, Allen Leech, Elizabeth McGovern, Tuppence Middleton, Brendan Coyle, Imelda Staunton, Hugh Bonneville, David Haig, Joanne Froggatt, Phyllis Logan, and Laura Carmichael. This isn't much besides a re-introduction teaser to get all the fans excited again, because there's still nine more months until it will be in cinemas. But have a look.
