Second Fun Teaser Trailer for Aardman's Animated 'Arthur Christmas'
Brilliant! Columbia Pictures has debuted a second fun teaser trailer for Arthur Christmas, the Aardman animated adventure about Santa's son Arthur. The first teaser trailer for this was premiered last December, and this is the latest follow-up since then, still not providing much of a look at the story, but at least giving us a sense of the comedy of the movie. It reminds me of Disney/ABC's Prep & Landing, but with a bit of an Aardman twist. The voice cast includes James McAvoy as Arthur, Jim Broadbent, Bill Nighy, Hugh Laurie and Imelda Staunton. I know this kid is going to ruin Christmas, but then he's going to save it again, right?

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 this year, Santa's son Arthur has his own top secret mission.
Arthur Christmas is co-directed by effects animator Barry Cook, of Mulan, and Sarah Smith, who also wrote the script and is making her feature directing debut. Oscar nominated writer Peter Baynham who worked on the Bruno and Borat scripts and also wrote the Arthur remake for Russell Brand, helped co-write the script with Smith. Sony is bringing Aardman's Arthur Christmas to theaters November 23rd next Thanksgiving.
