Netflix has released a trailer for its upcoming Eurovision movie.
Starring Will Ferrell (Anchorman) and Rachel McAdams (The Notebook), Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga premieres on Netflix later this week.
The Eurovision Song Contest is a real international song competition that has aired in Europe every year since 1956, until this year when the event was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The contest is an annual treasure in the UK, both loved and fondly ridiculed by viewers in equal measure.
Alongside Ferrell and McAdams, who are playing a fictional Icelandic duo entering the competition, the new comedy movie also stars Downton Abbey actor Dan Stevens as their hunky Russian rival, Alexander Lemtov.
Watch the trailer:
The official synopsis reads: “When aspiring musicians Lars (Will Ferrell) and Sigrit (Rachel McAdams) are given the opportunity of a lifetime to represent their country at the world’s biggest song competition, they finally have a chance to prove that any dream worth having is a dream worth fighting for.”
Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga will be available to stream exclusively on Netflix from Friday 26th June.
The movie’s soundtrack album is available on Amazon.
