We’ve seen a couple teaser trailers for the Aardman Animation holiday film Arthur Christmas, and now, two full-length trailers are out. The UK trailer still shows a lot of the elements we’ve seen before — the North Pole as a high-tech gift processing center; Santa’s sleigh as UFO; and the geeky younger member of Santa’s family who acts as the title character — but it also shows off a lot more of the actual story that puts all those elements to work. There are also a few good, cheeky little jokes. And the US trailer has a slightly different approach to the same elements. Check out the trailers below. (Oh, and there are lions, too.) Read More »

The following is to be read in a dramatic announcer voice: On an all new House M.D., House and his partner travel to a small, dank apartment and spoof one of the most famous scenes in Pulp Fiction in order to save a friend from certain death. House, All New, Tonight on Fox. End Commercial.
Actually, it was Monday night on Fox and while I’ve never been a fan of the repetitive, overly-dramatic but critically acclaimed medical drama, if more episodes were like this, I’d be more inclined to watch. Check out the clip after the jump. Read More »
In Hop, from Alvin and the Chipmunks director Tim Hill, Russell Brand voices a CGI version of the Easter bunny and James Marsden plays the human who gets stuck taking care of him. Well, it isn’t the Easter bunny exactly, but a young bunny who has been tapped to be the next global deliverer of eggs and candy. Close enough.
We’ve seen one teaser, which basically consisted of a CGI bunny playing drums, but now there is a full trailer. If you think you can be convinced that this idea is a good one, by all means press on to the point beyond the break. Read More »
