The Christmas Chronicles Trailer Starring Kurt Russell


When it was first announced that Kurt Russell had signed on to play Santa Claus in an upcoming holiday adventure film, it seemed like a pretty amazing bit of casting. The fact that it was also being produced by Chris Columbus (Home Alone) only seemed to solidify the possibility that we may have a new yuletide classic on our hands. Unfortunately, now that I’ve seen the first trailer for The Christmas Chronicles, I’m not so sure. This is a Netflix original directed by Clay Kaytis (The Angry Birds Movie), and despite a cute concept that involves a brother and sister teaming up to help Santa save Christmas, it looks like borderline direct-to-DVD material. Perhaps my expectations were too high? The Christmas Chronicles arrives on Netflix on Nov. 22nd; check out the trailer after the jump and see what you think.
