Back in May 2019 we announced that Emma Roberts (“We’re The Millers”, “American Horror Story”) and Luke Bracey (“Hacksaw Ridge”, “Point Break”) would star in a Christmas film “Holidate” for Netflix and we now have a trailer and release date. The film arrives on October 28th and follows Sloane (Roberts) and Jackson (Bracey) who hate the holidays! Their enduring singledom leaves them subject to the judgment of their meddling family members or stuck with clingy, awkward dates on each festive occasion. When these two meet, they pledge to be each other’s plus-ones for each holiday celebration over the course of the year. Other cast includes Jake Manley (“The Order”), Jessica Capshaw (“Grey’s Anatomy”), Andrew “King Bach” Bachelor (“The Babysitter”), Frances Fisher (“Watchmen”), Manish Dayal (“The Hundred-Foot Journey”) and Kristin Chenoweth (“Pushing Daisies”).
Sloane (Emma Roberts) and Jackson (Luke Bracey) hate the holidays. They constantly find themselves single, sitting at the kids table, or stuck with awkward dates. But when these two strangers meet one particularly bad Christmas, they make a pact to be each other’s “holidate” for every festive occasion throughout the next year. With a mutual disdain for the holidays, and assuring themselves that they have no romantic interest in the other, they make the perfect team. However, as a year of absurd celebrations come to an end, Sloane and Jackson find that sharing everything they hate may just prove to be something they unexpectedly love.
