Aardman, Sony and Columbia are reminding movie goers it’s only six months to the holidays by releasing the second trailer to the animated comedy feature Arthur Christmas.
Here’s how the studios describe the film:
The 3D, CG-animated family comedy Arthur Christmas, 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.
And here’s the trailer:
Arthur Christmas is directed by Sarah Smith, written by Peter Baynham and Smith, produced by Steve Pegram and executive produced by Peter Lord, David Sproxton and Carla Shelley. The voice cast includes James McAvoy, Hugh Laurie, Jim Broadbent, Bill Nighy, Imelda Staunton and Ashley Jensen.
It is set to be released in theaters Nov.23.
