The Christmas Chronicles 2 Star Reveals Nude Elf Streaking Scene That Had to Be Cut

The Christmas Chronicles 2 Star Reveals Nude Elf Streaking Scene That Had to Be Cut
2020's Christmas cheer got a bit of help from Netflix with the release of The Christmas Chronicles 2. Starring Kurt Russell as Santa Claus, and Goldie Hawn as Mrs. Claus, the movie also featured an evil elf from Santa's village who turns into a human, played by Deadpool 2 star Julian Dennison. In an interview with CinemaBlend, Dennison revealed that the scene showing his transformation from elf to man almost ended up being Nsfw.

"I remember transforming into a human ... the barn scene. We were in the stable, and I'm next to the sleigh, I remember this whole bit, transforming in the shadows, running off. I remember in an earlier draft, I was supposed to be butt naked. I was supposed to be naked, and they were going to get me to run through the [forest.] Like, you could tell I'm naked, but not really, because I'd be running through the forest and shadows.

‘The Christmas Chronicles 2’ Review (Netflix)

‘The Christmas Chronicles 2’ Review (Netflix)
Stars: Kurt Russell, Goldie Hawn, Darby Camp, Julian Dennison, Jahzir Bruno, Darlene Love, Tyrese Gibson, Kimberly Williams-Paisley, Sunny Suljic | Written by Matt Lieberman, Chris Columbus | Directed by Chris Columbus

The first Christmas Chronicles movie released two years ago was a Netflix Original hit. A fantastic family Christmas movie that made you wonder why no-one had cast Kurt Russell as Santa Claus before. So it’s no surprise that a sequel was made a short time later, but would it be Lost in New York or Holiday Heist? The daughter from the last movie, Kate is now a moody teenager but is soon reunited with Santa when Belsnickel tries to steal Christmas.

The main cast are back for The Christmas Chronicles 2 but this time Goldie Hawn gets a bigger role as Mrs Claus, Jahzir Bruno comes in as Jack – another child to help Santa and Julian Dennision (Hunt For The Wilderpeople

The Christmas Chronicles 2 Review: Kurt Russell’s Hot Santa Sequel is Too Nice

The Christmas Chronicles 2 Review: Kurt Russell’s Hot Santa Sequel is Too Nice
While nearly every Santa Claus-centric movie concerns the potential loss of Christmas, arguably the fear of missing the holiday is most keenly felt in 2020. Netflix’s The Christmas Chronicles (the 2018 film that kicked off this jolly old franchise) indeed tapped into that when it starred two kids learning to believe in Santa, or else; and Chris Columbus’ The Christmas Chronicles 2 strikes at the source of Yuletide cheer again with a plot to destroy Santa’s Village at the North Pole. But what could be the root cause that’s so extreme as to endanger the entire magical foundation of Christmas for the foreseeable future? Apparently, teenage angst.

Kate Pierce (Darby Camp) is a sulky teen spending Christmas 2020 in Cancún—and, clearly, an alternate universe. While there she bemoans the lack of snow and her mom Claire (Kimberly Williams-Paisley) bringing along new boyfriend Bob, plus his son Jack (The

‘The Christmas Chronicles 2’ Review: Kurt Russell’s Santa, Now Joined by Goldie Hawn’s Mrs. Claus, in a Yuletide-Kitsch Adventure

‘The Christmas Chronicles 2’ Review: Kurt Russell’s Santa, Now Joined by Goldie Hawn’s Mrs. Claus, in a Yuletide-Kitsch Adventure
Not so long ago, there were three or four new Christmas movies a year. Now it seems like there are 30 or 40, and if you’re wondering how that assembly line of holiday product gets filled, the answer is: by recycling endless variations on the same yuletide fairy-tale kitsch and we’re-all-one-big-nettlesome-Christmas-family glorified-sitcom cheer.

Take “The Christmas Chronicles 2.” Directed by Chris Columbus, with his leftover-’80s synthetic-is-the-new-real life’s-a-snow-globe touch, it’s a movie in which Santa Claus, played with winning macho bluster by Kurt Russell, has to save Christmas from the depredations of an angry fallen elf. But it’s also a family-therapy movie; a tale about the logistics of Christmas set at a North Pole that’s like a resort shopping mall filled with snow that looks like a blanket of Ivory-soap shavings; a “Raiders of the Lost Santa” sleigh-race-through-the-air action movie; and a comedy bauble that’s

‘The Christmas Chronicles 2’ Film Review: Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn Team Up to Save the Holidays

‘The Christmas Chronicles 2’ Film Review: Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn Team Up to Save the Holidays
Santa’s back, and Goldie’s got him, as the MGM marketing department of yore might have put it, and while Netflix’s “The Christmas Chronicles 2” hits pretty much every note you’d expect, it throws in enough surprises, and deep dives into Yuletide lore, to keep it from being mere tinsel.

In a year when most of us won’t be able to spend the holidays with our families, the film offers a reunion or two: Hollywood power spouses Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn co-star in a movie for the first time since the original “Overboard,” and Christmas royalty Chris Columbus returns to the director’s chair after producing the first “Chronicles” in 2018.

This time, Columbus co-writes with Matt Lieberman (who also wrote the original), and the two of them have clearly done their Christmas research, crafting a storyline that weaves in everything from Santa’s Turkish origins

Industry Notables Join Virtual Red Carpet for Micheaux Project Student Workshop

Industry Notables Join Virtual Red Carpet for Micheaux Project Student Workshop
Wednesday saw a unique red carpet unfold in Los Angeles. It had actors and interviewers, but there was no premiere or awards show. And the real stars were the reporters.

The reporters were 10 students from the Los Angeles Center for Enriched Studies (Laces), a public high school in Mid-City Los Angeles. The occasion was the conclusion of the inaugural Micheaux Project, the outreach program launched earlier this year by Variety and the African American Film Critics Assn., designed to introduce high school students from Bipoc communities to potential careers in the entertainment industry.

Laces is the first school to host Micheaux Project workshops. The eight-week course covered such topics as film criticism, interviewing, finding a point of view and working with a newsroom. And though the students had dipped their toes into interviewing over seven previous workshops, with the virtual red carpet assembled for the final installment, the budding reporters

The Witches Review

The Witches Review
It’s a wonder more Roald Dahl books haven’t seen the light of cinematic day. We’re barely into double figures (three of those are remakes), and yet his huge body of work is a prime visual feast for family audiences looking for something other than the relentless onslaught of superhero fare.

Enter The Witches. Not so much a remake of the 1990 film as a new take on the original story, we enter a world where witches exist and really, really hate children. It’s a story with more than its fair share of nastiness and big gloopy spoonfuls of horror, essential ingredients in any adaptation of Dahl’s work.

That sharp edge was noticeably missing from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory when it received the Tim Burton treatment. As ideal as Burton’s visuals are (so well aligned with illustrator Quentin Blake’s sharp-angled style) he isn’t
