‘Downton Abbey 2’ Trailer
There’s still no trailer for this film. But, with a December release date, we can get a trailer soon. We’ll update this as soon as there’s any official confirmation about the trailer.
Less than a month after the first film premiered, The Sun reported that “a sequel is already in the pipeline” following the Downton Abbey was an unqualified hit, raking in $237 million worldwide, making it a natural and obvious bet for a sequel.
And the movie also had “taken more than £110 million [approximately $134 million] globally despite being out for only 26 days,” with around $73 million of the movie’s box office coming from the United States alone.
That it’s finally getting one isn’t shocking and it probably wouldn’t have taken two years had the coronavirus pandemic not happened.
Now, the Downton Abbey is coming out on 22 December 2021. The news is exciting all the same.
