Watch: 'The Nutcracker 3D' Official Trailer with Elle Fanning
I'm not really sure where this came from, but Awards Daily found a new official trailer for The Nutcracker 3D, Andrei Konchalovsky's spectacular take on the classic Christmas story starring the likes of Elle Fanning, John Turturro, Nathan Lane and Charlie Rowe. This looks incredibly fantastical and very stylized, almost to the point where it might not be good, but I think it could be fun to watch. To be honest, this reminds me of Hook, with Konchalovsky twisting the classic Nutcracker story into his own wild vision. Check out all those crazy steampunk machines the Rat King has, what a crazy idea. Anyway, check out the official trailer below!
Watch the official trailer for Andrei Konchalovsky's The Nutcracker 3D:
The Nutcracker 3D follows nine-year-old Mary (Fanning) whose dull Viennese Christmas is suddenly filled with excitement and adventure following the arrival of Uncle Albert and a gift of an enchanted nutcracker.
The Nutcracker 3D is directed by acclaimed Russian filmmaker Andrei Konchalovsky, of films like Runaway Train, Maria's Lovers, Tango & Cash and Duet for One previously. The script was written by Konchalovsky and Chris Solimine (of Moscow Chill) and was inspired by Tchaikovsky's ballet which was originally adapted from E.T.A. Hoffmann's fairytale "The Nutcracker and the Mouse King." Freestyle Releasing will be bringing The Nutcracker 3D to theaters, in 3D obviously, starting November 24th this holiday season. Interested?
