International – That’s right: One Red Nose Day and A Wedding is a sequel featuring the entire cast of the original “Four Weddings and a Funeral” film!

Four Weddings and a Funeral is a 1994 British romantic comedy film directed by Mike Newell. It was the first of several films by screenwriter Richard Curtis to feature Hugh Grant and followed the adventures of Charles (Grant) and his circle of friends through a number of social occasions as they each encounter romance. Andie MacDowell stars as Charles’ love interest Carrie, with Kristin Scott Thomas, James Fleet, Simon Callow, John Hannah, Charlotte Coleman, David Bower, Corin Redgrave and Rowan Atkinson in supporting roles.

It was made in six weeks and cost under £3 million, becoming an unexpected success and the highest-grossing British film in history at the time, with worldwide box office more than $245.7 million, and receiving Academy Award nominations for Best Picture and Best Original Screenplay

The hilarious sequel was written by Red Nose Day co-founder Richard Curtis (who also wrote Four Weddings and a Funeral), the new instalment picks up 25 years after the original film to see what everyone’s been up to.

In the spirit of coming together for Red Nose Day, One Red Nose Day and A Wedding features original Four Weddings cast members as well as some very special guest stars.

Comic Relief, a Red Nose Day initiative was launched in the United Kingdom with the goal of using comedy to raise money and help those leading tough lives. Their vision is to create a just world free from poverty.

The movement continues to grow with every fundraiser held, TV special aired, partner enlisted, and Red Nose sold. Globally, Red Nose Day has raised over $1 billion since its launch in the U.K. in 1988.
