Have you ever wondered how Santa manages to send us gifts on time? I wonder this all the time so I’m really happy we’ll soon have a chance to find that out. Arthur Christmas hits the theaters on November 23rd, 2011 and we have fresh international trailer for this 3D, CG-animated family comedy you should not miss!
I will agree that the first 30 seconds of this trailer look like good old tv commercial for a toilet gel (you know the one that helps prevent tough dirt from sticking?), but if you look at this really carefully you can actually see a lot of fun at the North Pole. Because I don’t! So Santa, I really love you man, but please let me know what’s interesting in this shitty trailer, ok?
Anyway, I’m still looking forward to Arthur Christmas. Mostly because an Aardman production for Sony Pictures Animation, at last reveals the incredible, never-before seen answer to every child’s question: So how does Santa deliver all those presents in one night? The answer: Santa’s exhilarating, ultra-high-tech operation hidden beneath the North Pole. But at the heart of the film is a story with the ingredients of a Christmas classic – a family in a state of comic dysfunction and an unlikely hero, Arthur, with an urgent mission that must be completed before Christmas morning dawns.
Directed by Sarah Smith, Arthur Christmas is written by Peter Baynham and Sarah Smith, while the cast includes James McAvoy, Hugh Laurie, Bill Nighy, Jim Broadbent, Imelda Staunton and Ashley Jensen.
Feel free to share your thoughts about this one and I will pretend I care, ok?
