He’s not exactly Snake Pliskin, but we’ll take Kurt Russell’s take as a bad-ass Santa any Christmas. Today, Netflix has released a new trailer for the holiday movie that takes Russell and turns him into the hippest version of Old Saint Nick that we’ve ever seen. How cool is he? We’re pretty sure he’d beat Tim Allen’s Clause to death and then roast him over the fire with the elves.
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.
The Christmas Chronicles hits Netflix on November 22nd.
