Trailer Watch: Lily James Wants to Write About “The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society”

“The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society”

Juliet Ashton’s (Lily James, “Cinderella”) career is off to a frustrating start in the trailer for “The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society.” As a journalist, she’s not getting the stories she wants. As an author, she’s not getting the audience she wants. In fact, her first book only sold 28 copies worldwide. But a letter from Dawsey Adams (Michiel Huisman, “Game of Thrones”) might mark an end to her career woes.

“Finally, I’ll have something serious to write,” Juliet exclaims when Dawsey informs her of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, a book club that was formed in resistance to the Nazis during World War II. But getting permission to write the story of the club is easier said than done.

‘Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again’ TV Spot Has Cher Singing Abba

Universal has released a new Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again TV spot. The upcoming film functions as both a prequel and a sequel as it jumps between the present, where Sophie (Amanda Seyfried) is now pregnant with her first child, and we cut back to see a young Donna (Lily James) living it up in the past. As expected there will be plenty of Abba songs. This TV spot aired during the Grammys last night, which makes sense not only because of the Abba stuff, but also because they’re really playing up Cher as Sophie’s grandmother. The …

Cher Makes a Hilarious Splash in the New Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again Trailer

  • BuzzSugar
Donna and the Dynamos are back in a new trailer for Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again. We already knew that the sequel to 2008's huge musical hit looks back at how Donna (Meryl Streep) met the three men who could have been her daughter Sophie's father, and the first trailer gave us a look at the young Donna (played by Lily James) and her suitors for the first time. It also revealed an extraspecial cameo from Cher and set our minds whirring as to the fate of Donna. Is Streep's character really dead in the sequel? The signs definitely point that way, and the second and third trailers do nothing to dispel our fears. The latest footage, above, debuted during the Grammys, and while it lacks Streep, it has a whole lot of Cher! The icon will be playing the grandmother to Sophie (Amanda Seyfried), who has an endless supply of sassy quips.
