Kurt Rus­sell ‘de­fin­i­tive’ Santa? ‘The Christ­mas Chron­i­cles’ out on Nov. 22

Sun.Star Cebu - - LIVE! - PR S

“The Christ­mas Chron­i­cles,” a hol­i­day ad­ven­ture from pro­ducer Chris Colum­bus (“Home Alone,” “Harry Potter and the Sor­cerer’s Stone”) and di­rec­tor Clay Kaytis (“The An­gry Birds Movie”), tells the story of sis­ter and brother Kate (Darby Camp) and Teddy Pierce ( Ju­dah Lewis), whose Christ­mas Eve plan to catch Santa Claus (Kurt Rus­sell) on cam­era turns into an un­ex­pected jour­ney that most kids could only dream about. Af­ter stak­ing out Santa’s ar­rival, they sneak into his sleigh, cause it to crash and nearly de­rail Christ­mas. As their wild night un­folds, Kate and Teddy work to­gether with Santa—as you’ve never seen him be­fore—and his loyal Elves to save Christ­mas be­fore it’s too late.

“No one is bet­ter suited than Kurt Rus­sell to bring our ver­sion of a rugged, charis­matic and hi­lar­i­ous Santa Claus to life. From our first meet­ing, he com­pletely threw him­self into this iconic role—and grew an im­pres­sive beard in the process. It has been a dream come true to work with Kurt in cre­at­ing what I be­lieve will be the new def­i­ni­tion of Santa Claus for gen­er­a­tions to come,” Kaytis said.

“Kurt is the de­fin­i­tive Santa Claus. Charis­matic, tough when needed with a wicked sense of hu­mor. We’re re­ally ex­cited for au­di­ences to see his per­for­mance on­screen and hope ‘The Christ­mas Chron­i­cles’ be­comes a time­less clas­sic,” Colom­bus added.

“The Christ­mas Chron­i­cles” will launch glob­ally on Net­flix Nov. 22. /
