Arthur Christmas (3D)

Ever wondered how 2 billion presents get delivered all in one night?


Arthur Christmas (3D)
Santa has gone high-tech over the years, to enable him to deliver all those millions of presents over the course of one night. This year, however, the computerised system missed one present for a little girl in England. Santa is dead-tired and has gone to bed, so his son and Santa's dad haul out the sleigh, hitch up eight reindeer, and attempt to deliver the present the old-fashioned way. Of course, things do not go smoothly, leading to much comic mayhem. This film is releasing in both 2D and 3D, this is the 3D version.

96 minutes.

What the Critics say

Box Office
Pete Hammond quote iconAimed at kids, Arthur Christmas could be a little trying if you're over 10, but if you want an easygoing flick to get you into the mood for the holidays you could do a lot worse, although Justin Bieber's annoying end credits rendition of Santa Claus is Coming to Town might have you running for the exits.

C. Fuchs quote iconAdults will probably laugh with the film more than kids. But the little ones are going to absolutely thrill to it.
