Full Official Trailer for the 'Downton Abbey' Movie with Maggie Smith
"Downton Abbey is the heart of this community, and you're keeping it beating." Return to the countryside. Focus Features has revealed the full-length official trailer for the Downton Abbey movie, hitting theaters this September. The feature film continues the story that began on the beloved TV series following the Crawley family and the servants who worked for them at the beginning of the 20th century in an Edwardian English country house. The show originally ended in 2015 after six "series", but will continue now four years later. The original series cast has returned: 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 looks charming and extravagant, and actually considerably epic, a worthy feature film version of this endearing television series. Have a look.
