It's the happiest time of the year ... once again. Rather than dole out the standard list of the best holiday classics to warm your heart, we prefer to shake things up a bit with our look at everyone's favorite bearded fat man, Santa Claus.
Now we all know that Edmund Gwenn was a wonderful Santa in Miracle on 34th Street, the only actor to take home an Oscar as St. Nick. And actors such as Ed Asner in Elf and David Huddleston in Santa Claus: The Movie have certainly done the red suit justice on the silver screen.
But what about those other Santas? The ones that took the legend of Santa in a different direction: Boozing, scaring, kicking, and even killing? Those are the ones we take a look at in Ho, Ho, Whoa!: The 5 Worst Movie Santas.
If you want to see these bad Santas in action, »

The Twilight Saga: New Moon dawned with a hot-blooded estimated $140.7 million on approximately 8,500 screens at 4,024 sites over the weekend, charting as the third highest-grossing opening behind only The Dark Knight and Spider-Man 3 and the biggest of 2009. With the advent of New Moon, not to mention an excellent showing by The Blind Side, overall business surged 56 percent over the same weekend last year when Twilight and Bolt debuted and was the second-highest seen in history, behind the weekend that The Dark Knight opened.
On its opening day, New Moon shattered the records for opening day ($72.7 million) and midnight showings ($26.3 million), thanks to the rush of its fervent fan base. Just like its predecessor, Twilight, the supernatural romance fell over 40 percent Friday-to-Saturday and the Friday accounted for more than half of the weekend business. On each day, New Moon essentially doubled the grosses of Twilight, which is an incredible feat for a sequel, »

A few months ago we were treated to a mysterious teaser for a new film titled Despicable Me, which had a cornucopia of comedic names attached to it like Steve Carell, Jason Segel, Will Arnett, Kristin Wiig, Russel Brand, and Danny McBride. We’re finally getting a bit more of the puzzle solved as the second trailer for the film has hit the web.
The film focuses on Gru (Carell), the world’s #2 super villain, who is constantly at the throat of #1, his competition and enemy, Vector (Segel). The film takes a few interesting turns, which force Gru to rethink his evil ways.
The film comes from the studio and animation department that brought us Ice Age, Robots, and Horton Hears a Who! and the writing team who brough us Bubble Boy and The Santa Clause 2. Check out the second teaser after the jump, which focuses on the rivalry between Gru and Vector. »

It was a miserly start to the Holiday movie season as the high profile movie positioned to bring the most cheer, A Christmas Carol, stumbled a bit out of the gate. Overall weekend business was off 14 percent from the same timeframe last year, when Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa landed, and was on the low end for early November.
Haunting approximately 6,500 screens at 3,683 sites, A Christmas Carol churned out an estimated $31 million, selling fewer tickets than Elf and The Santa Clause 2 and far fewer than star Jim Carrey's last Christmas movie, How the Grinch Stole Christmas. On the other hand, Carol's opening grossed more than The Polar Express, the previous performance-capture animated Christmas movie from director Robert Zemeckis that chugged strongly throughout the 2004 season despite its disappointing $23.3 million start, but that picture was muted by The Incredibles whereas Carol had no such direct competitor. According to distributor Walt Disney Pictures' exit polling, »

"Tooth Fairy" starring Dwayne Johnson is a Disney movie Not made by Disney! Just consider the premise, it sounds like "The Game Plan" with a little bit of fairy dust. Johnson plays a pro hockey player nicknamed the Tooth Fairy. Why? Because he knocks out other players' teeth. He disappoints a young boy, so he's ordered to one week's hard labor as the real...tan dan dan...Tooth Fairy!
There will be a lot of fairy goodness here from Johnson, who by the way, is a sweet man! (Check out my interview with Johnson for "Race to Witch Mountain" right here)
"Tooth Fairy" is rated PG and flies into theaters January 22nd, 2010.
Take a look at the trailer:
Dwayne Johnson's movie career has taken an odd and relatively shameless turn over the past few years. Like most wrestlers, he started out in Hollywood as an up and coming action star doing movies like The Scorpion King, The Rundown, and Walking Tall. After Doom and Southland Tales, however, he settled into more family-friendly territory and has never looked back. Now the trailer for his latest film Tooth Fairy has arrived online, and well... let's just say it's about as family-friendly as it gets. The Rock is Derek Thompson, a scrappy minor-league hockey player who hits so hard that he has earned the nickname "The Tooth Fairy" from opposing players. His bad attitude eventually lands him in hot water, however, and he is granted magical powers and forced to serve as a real honest-to-goodness Tooth Fairy. Hilarious! Would you expect anything more from the director of The Santa Clause 2? »
Wow, this looks bad, bad, bad. Not as bad as All About Steve or Old Dogs, but pretty damn bad. Fox has debuted the first official trailer for Tooth Fairy over on Yahoo. This stars Dwayne Johnson as a Tooth Fairy (ugh) as well as Ashley Judd, Julie Andrews, and Billy Crystal. Unsurprisingly this looks a lot like The Santa Clause (maybe because the guy directing it also directed The Santa Clause 2 and 3), but unfortunately not the least bit entertaining. I'm sure this will make a lot of money and a bunch of people will enjoy it, but man, it just looks terrible. Not my cup o' tea by a long shot. Check out the trailer if you really want to see it.
