What do you get for the kid who has everything, including a Red Ryder BB Gun? Either a car, or a copy of A Christmas Story 2 on Blu-ray. Yes, whether you like it or not, a sequel to the seminal 1983 film about a young boy named Ralphie (Peter Billingsley) who pines for the aforementioned piece of hardware during the holiday season is coming to a store near you.
Directed by Brian Levant, this movie follows Ralphie years later as he once again decides he has a big ticket item for the Christmas list: a 1938 Hupmobile Skyline Convertible. Braeden Lemasters plays the lead, Daniel Stern is the dad, Stacey Travis is mom and Valin Shinyei is the brother, Randie. The direct to Blu-ray and DVD film hits on October 30.
