Arthur Christmas Synopsis
Arthur LOVES everything to do with Christmas; indeed, he is the only one in his family still captivated by the magic of the holiday. Laurie will play Arthur’s older brother Steve, heir to the reins, a cool, incredibly capable guy who has given the North Pole high-tech efficiency, military-style precision. Broadbent plays Santa, who pictures himself as the guy in charge at the North Pole, but is now more of a figurehead as the operation has outgrown him.

Nighy plays Santa’s 136-year-old father, Grandsanta, a cranky old codger who hates the modern world, is always grumbling that Christmas ‘was better when I was Santa’ and has a tense relationship with Steve, who he calls ‘A postman with a spaceship.’ Jensen will play Bryony, a lowly elf from the Giftwrap Battalion, with an eager-to-please attitude and an obsession with wrapping and bows. Imelda Staunton rounds out the cast as Mrs. Santa, dedicated wife and mother to her husband and sons.

There was a lot for audiences to be thankful for this weekend, but there were only two movies that had anything to celebrate Breaking Dawn kept its sparkly fangs sunk into the number one spot for a seond weekend, pulling down an additional 42 million for a grand total of $221 million in US sales to date. That's about $10 million less than second entry New Moon and $15 million third in the series, Eclipse.

Arthur Christmas Director On The Logic Of Santa And Her Idea For A Sequel Arthur Christmas Director On The Logic Of Santa And Her Idea For A Sequel
When I talked to Smith a few weeks ago, I asked her about how she and Baynham broke the story, how they managed to incorporate technology into a Christmas movie and "future-proof" it for evergreen viewings, what they might want to see in a sequel, how they were inspired by The Bourne Identity, and how she feels being one of the few women to direct an animated film

Have you heard the buzz? People at work talking about it? Maybe caught a snippet of the story on the news? We had another exact prediction last week! The phones won’t stop ringing around here. But it’s another week and no time to rest on any imaginary laurels. This time around we’ve got a great slate of movies with Jim Henson’s little puppets returning, Christmas animation starting early and a children’s book come to life

Arthur Christmas Trailer Brings The Holiday Spirit To Early October Arthur Christmas Trailer Brings The Holiday Spirit To Early October
I love Christmas as much as the next person, probably more than the next person, but it takes a lot to start get me excited about the holiday when I haven't even figured out what i want to dress as for Halloween. Lucky for the people at Sony Pictures who are trying to promote Arthur Christmas, they've sent James McAvoy to do the job

Arthur Christmas looks to attack the ever burning question of just how one jolly old fat man delivers toys to 6 billion people in just one night. Spoiler Alert: It has nothing to do with time zones
