‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’ and ‘V for Vendetta’ Come to Netflix Next Month, Plus a Double Dose of ‘Ace Ventura’
Ah, December. A time for sipping hot beverages, retail therapy, and gathering the family around the television. This holiday season, Netflix will add blockbuster comedies new and old to its collection, as well as some more artistic fare fresh from festival circuit. Next month on the streaming platform, home viewers can catch the comedic stylings of Chris Pratt in “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2,” in case they missed it in theaters. If you prefer something a little darker, the Wachowskis’ dystopian epic “V for Vendetta” will also be available.

Why The Santa Clause Perfectly Depicts Your Childhood Image of the North Pole

  • BuzzSugar
The holidays are officially upon us, and one of the best things about the festive season is getting nostalgic about how you used to celebrate as a kid. In between sledding with your friends, writing those carefully thought-out Christmas lists for Santa, and baking cookies with your mom, you probably spent a lot of time dreaming about the North Pole. What was it like? How many elves lived there? Could you apply to be an elf? If so, what experience did that entail? Many Christmas movies brought the mysterious and magical place to life, but in my opinion, none did it better than The Santa Clause. Nothing can ever really compare to the 1994 film starring Tim Allen, but the film's two sequels, The Santa Clause 2 and The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause, still held true to their original North Pole vision. The quaint buildings were decorated with candy canes,

Mousterpiece Cinema, Episode 122: ‘The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause’

Friends, as we approach another Christmas, it’s time to limp across the finish line, gasping for air. In 2011, by himself, Josh took a look at the 1994 holiday comedy The Santa Clause. In 2012, Josh and Gabe, along with guest Marc Vibbert, did the same with the 2002 sequel, The Santa Clause 2. And now, it’s just Josh and Gabe, gaping in awe at the terror and foul horror of the 2006 end of the trilogy, The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause. On the one hand, sure, this movie has Tim Allen, Martin Short as Jack Frost, Alan Arkin, Ann-Margret, and more. But on the other hand, it has Martin Short singing a poor parody of “New York, New York,” and Alan Arkin doing some of the worst acting of his life. Put it this way, there are plenty of tangents in this episode because it just got too painful to

Reese Witherspoon, Martin Short & More Are Joining 'Inherent Vice'

The last name to join Paul Thomas Anderson's adaptation of Thomas Pynchon's book Inherent Vice was Owen Wilson, but now a trio of co-stars have just been added to the comedic detective story. Deadline has word that Reese Witherspoon is taking the female lead, a role once rumored for Charlize Theron, while The Wrap has pegged Martin Short to make his first live-action film appearance since The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause, along with the addition of Jena Malone, who will be seen in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire this fall. That's quite an eclectic blend of talent, and none have worked with Anderson yet. For those just joining us, the story follows a stoner detective named Larry "Doc" Sportello (Joaquin Phoenix) trying to solve the case of a kidnapped girl he used to date. Witherspoon is taking the female lead which will reunite the actress with

New ‘Rise Of The Guardians’ Poster

Rise Of The Guardians is the animated Christmas film of choice this year. It’s kind of like The Avengers, but with mythical beings such as Santa Claus, The Easter Bunny, Jack Frost, The Sandman, and The Tooth Fairy, joining forces to fight a great evil. These immortal guardians are the protectors of children and really have their work cut-out for them against Jude Law’s evil Pitch.

The new poster looks great, as did previous efforts, but then again I’m just a sucker for Christmas movies overall. All these characters also appeared in The Santa Clause 2 (2002) and The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause (2006), so is this a secret sequel? No, of course not. But one can dream.

Rise Of The Guardians will be released 30th November 2012. It stars the voices of Jude Law, Hugh Jackman, Chris Pine, Alec Baldwin, and Isla Fisher.

Q&A: Elizabeth Mitchell on Lying, 'Lost' and Her Dane Cook Dream

  • NextMovie
Velvet-voiced Elizabeth Mitchell is always a pleasure to watch on-screen or onstage owing to her smart role choices. Most people know and love her as Dr. Juliet Burke on "Lost" and as Erica Evans, humanity's best hope against reptilian invaders, on "V"; but she's also made an impression as Angelina Jolie's lover in "Gia" and with supporting roles in "Nurse Betty," "The Santa Clause 2," "Running Scared" and "The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause."

In "Answers to Nothing," an ensemble drama opening this Friday, Mitchell plays a woman desperately trying to have a baby with husband Dane Cook, even though she suspects he is cheating on her. Mitchell chatted with us about her premonition before she got this role, how she felt about Juliet's death on "Lost," what would have happened on "V," and how reaching out and touching Angelina Jolie helped land Mitchell's first film role in "Gia.

'Tower' Barely Steals Lead from 'Puss'

'Tower' Barely Steals Lead from 'Puss'
Tower Heist grabbed first place on Friday, though it was a pretty standard start for such a star-powered vehicle. On the weekend, the Ben Stiller-Eddie Murphy comedy should end up behind Puss in Boots, which held extremely well. Meanwhile, A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas was unable to convert 3D premiums and holiday themes in to a new franchise high. Tower Heist scored an estimated $8.1 million from 3,367 theaters on its opening day. That's way off from Due Date ($12.2 million), which debuted on the same weekend last year. It was also a tad behind Ben Stiller movies Tropic Thunder, Starsky and Hutch and Along Came Polly, all of which started with between $8.2 and $9.5 million. Still, it's an improvement over all of director Brett Ratner's original movies besides the first Rush Hour. The movie should wind up around $24-$25 million on the weekend.Puss in Boots dipped just 18 percent to an estimated $7.8 million.

‘Twas The Night Before Christmas: 2-Disc Deluxe Edition (1974)

Synopsis: For some unexplained reason, letters to Santa Claus are being returned to the children of Junctionville. It seems some resident has angered St. Nick by calling him “a fraudulent myth!” Skeptical Albert Mouse has to be brought to his senses “and let up a little on the wonder why.” How Albert is persuaded to change his tune paves the way for Santa’s jolly return to town – and the joyous finale of the animated fable inspired by Clement Moore’s poem and produced by the merrymaking conjures of Rankin/bass studios. The voice talents of Joel grey, Tammy Grimes, John McGiver and George Gobel make this festive fable even more fun. (

Special Features:
