There is a small sneak peek for Help for the Holidays available. It comes from the PixL HD channel that already aired Help for the Holidays on December 2nd. They will also have a rerun tomorrow. This lovely scene is from the beginning of the movie.
They also released a couple new and lovely images of Summer. You can find more of them and caps in the gallery. Enjoy.
Just a couple days left till Help for the Holidays airs on the Hallmark Channel. We had the chance to watch it a bit earlier and want to share a few stills from the movie with you. We don’t want to take all the excitement away and will post the caps when the movie aired. Here are some of them. (There are a lot more great images)
And here is a small sneak peek to get you in the right mood. The scene doesn’t give much of the plot away, but its still a spoiler.
It’s really a wonderful movie and it has a lot of emotional and also funny scenes and Summer’s performance is outstanding. So if you have the chance, you should watch it…and of course spread the word about it.
The Hallmark channel has a short commercial that is basically for advertising, but gives also a small glimpse of Summer from Help for the Holidays. If you look carefully you might also spot another Whedonverse actress.
Just a couple days left till we can see Summer finally back on your screen. Is everyone already in Christmas mood ?
