Santa Claus, who without a doubt really does exist, doesn’t have time to make a personal appearance in every Hollywood movie about Christmas ever made. Instead, he relies on a number of talented actors to portray him on the silver screen.
Christmas films like A Christmas Storyand Christmas Vacationgo right along with mistletoe, carols, and cookies as staples of the holiday season. And in celebration of the 12 days of Christmas, here are 12 bits of trivia you may not know about some of your favorite Christmas movies.
It looks like quite a few drive-in theaters will be closing down in the next year. It's been announced that Hollywood films will no longer be made with 35 mm film and everything will be completely digital. It's not a big deal for regular movie theaters, but it'll be very tough for most drive-ins since the new digital projectors can cost around $80,000 or more. A lot of drive-ins are likely to go out of business rather than spend so much money.
Even with Warner Brothers/DC’s ‘Man of Steel‘ set to open this weekend, and even with the billion dollar grosses of the last two Batman films, there’s no question that Marvel is the studio for superhero movies. To extend their legacy, they’ve set release dates for two currently untitled projects set to start the summer seasons in 2016 and 2017.
The summer movie season keeps chugging right along. (Yes, we realize it isn't technically summer yet, but as far as movies are concerned, it is.) This weekend we get a dose of comedy and a dash of the spooks, so take your pick, moviegoers.
Some will call this a slow weekend, but it may be better to think of it as the calm before the storm. Next week, the summer movie season begins and people are saving their pennies for 'Iron Man 3,' so it's not really surprising that this was an uneventful couple of days at the multiplex. At least the folks behind 'Pain and Gain' can be glad that their film led an otherwise quiet weekend.
American movies are big business overseas, but occasionally they require a little tweaking -- overdubs, subtitles, etc. -- to make them more suitable for foreign markets. Sometimes they even undergo a name change with hilarious (and head scratching) results.
