Anna Kendrick To Deliver Christmas Joy As Female Santa Claus In New Disney Movie
eelyajekiM   |  

Pitch Perfect 2 starring Anna Kendrick

Christmas is finally behind us, and so are all the holiday-centric movies. So it wouldn’t be much of a November or December release without a movie involving Christmas or Santa Clause. And it looks like we will be getting one of those from Disney soon, with none other than Anna Kendrick starring as the daughter of Santa Claus.

The currently untitled Disney Santa Claus movie, under the working title Nicole, comes from Miss Congeniality scribe Marc Lawrence, who will also direct. Kendrick is in talks to play Santa Claus’s daughter who is forced to take over the family business after her father decides to retire and her brother gets cold feet on the big night. More on the story below.

Holiday Metalhead Gift Guide 2016

Well, friends of the metal persuasion, that time of year has rolled around again. The holiday season is upon us, time to show up on doorsteps with your electric twangers and sing songs about roasting nuts, burn down churches, and, most of all, it’s time to avoid all your repulsive metalhead friends that might have the nerve to expect a gift. But for those of you who just don’t seem to have that flare for hiding in your closet for two months straight, here are some wallet-emptying items they’re sure to find amusing.

Here’s the 2016 Metalhead’s Holiday Gift Guide…

Happy Holidays From Boston Dynamics’ Robot Reindeer For Christmas Eve Nightmares (Video)
The Movie God   |  

Boston Dynamics Robot Reindeer

Anyone familiar with Boston Dynamics knows that they’re one of the top companies creating the absolutely terrifying (while still totally incredible) robots that will one day rise up and kill or enslave us all.

To wish you a happy holiday season, they’ve released a new video featuring some robot reindeer leading Santa’s sleigh. You can check out the video below.

‘Twas The Night Before Christmas, ‘Orange Is The New Black’ Style (Video)
The Movie God   |  

Orange is the New Black's "'Twas the Night Before Christmas"

1823’s “‘Twas the Night Before Christmas,” also known as “A Visit from St. Nicholas” and “The Night Before Christmas,” by Clement Clarke Moore is perhaps the best known holiday season poem.

The characters of the hit Netflix original series Orange is the New Black got together to recite the poem this holiday season, though they gave it their own little unique twist.

Their version is titled “‘Twas a Night in Litchfield,” and you can watch the video, and even read along with it, below.

‘Star Wars’ Villain Darth Vader Is The Ultimate Grinch In “Darth Santa” Christmas Short
The Movie God   |  

Darth Vader Star Wars Christmas Short "Darth Santa"

A new short has been released titled Darth Santa that brings together Christmas and the Star Wars universe. And no, it has nothing to do with the infamous holiday special.

The short features everyone’s favorite Dark Lord of the Sith Darth Vader taking over the job of Santa Claus, and not doing a very good job of it at all. In fact, Vader is a real grinch, playing pranks and generally wreaking havoc wherever he goes. It’s basically The Nightmare Before Christmas if Vader took the place of Jack Skellington, though intentional. The music used is even an impressive fusion of Star Wars music and Christmas music, including the Grinch’s song from How the Grinch Stole Christmas.

Neighborhood Syncs Lights To Music For Christmas Celebration (Videos)
The Movie God   |  

Neighborhood Christmas Lights Show

If you’ve ever been on the internet (that’s this fancy doodad you’re using now), you’ve more than likely seen a video of a house synchronizing their holiday lights and decorations to music. We’ve seen it done using video game music; we’ve seen it done for non-Christmas holidays like Halloween; we’ve seen some good, hard metal used; and, most recently, we’ve seen a very cool Star Wars-themed lights show.

On this Christmas Eve we have for you just some lights set to Christmas music. That may sound a bit boring, sure, but the catch here is that an entire neighborhood got in on the action and synced all of their lights together. They filmed the results using a drone, and then capped it all off with a pretty spectacular little holiday celebration that will make you wish you lived there. All that’s missing is some good snow falling.

You can see all of the videos below.

Must See: ‘Star Wars’-Themed Christmas Lights Show (Video)
The Movie God   |  

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Christmas Lightsaber

Everyone can appreciate a good Christmas lights and decorations display. It takes a lot of time and effort to put them all together, and they help greatly in getting everyone who sees them in more of a festive mood, which is nice.

But if you really want to win Christmas, it takes something truly special. Like, oh, say…a full lights show set to the best of John Williams‘ musical score for the Star Wars movies, for example. Someone did just that, and even included a couple of light beams having a lightsaber battle in the middle of the must-see display.

You Need This Light-Up ‘Star Wars’ Yoda Tree Topper
Pfeff-Bot   |  

12-inch Yoda with LED Lightsaber Tree Topper

With the debut of Star Wars: The Force Awakens still far, far away (December 18, 2015), there are a few ways to get your Star Wars fix; however, this little holiday item may just shine the brightest of all.

This 12-inch Star Wars Yoda with LED Lightsaber Tree Topper by Kurt Adler has been tested and approved. It all started with a Geeks of Doom Holiday Gift Guide. These are not just for our readers, folks. My interest was immediately piqued when I stumbled upon this Christmas Tree Topper on Amazon. And when I added it on a whim to my Amazon wishlist, I had no idea that this little piece of Christmas magic would change my life.

I was lucky enough to receive this topper in the mail as a Christmas gift, and when I opened the box, I was stunned. There is no other way to put it (okay, I have a few more ways). This is Yoda as you have never seen him before. His beautiful, handpainted face is almost as impressive as his bright green, shining lightsaber. My living room has changed from a cute decorated room to a magical land of wonder and amusement where the Force is extremely strong (I may be exaggerating a little bit). But really, when I beheld this Yoda at the top of my Christmas tree, my jaw dropped.

Comic Review: Krampus #1
Doc Brown   |  

Krampus #1 cover by Dean KotzKrampus #1
Written by Brian Joines
Illustrated by Dean Kotz
Colored by Ron Riley
Lettered by Charles Pritchett
Cover by Dean Kotz
Image Comics
Release Date: December 18, 2013
Cover Price: $2.99

What happens if you mix an adventure worthy of Indiana Jones with the sass and sarcasm of Hellboy, and then sprinkle it with a heaping helping of holiday magic? You get the surprisingly entertaining dark comedy from Image Comics: Krampus #1 by Brian Joines.

It’s probably tough to pull off a Christmas-themed comic that actually appeals to fans who prefer a gritty story over one covered in sugarplums and dipped in chocolate, and I say this because I recall only one other (The Last Christmas by Brian Posehn and Gerry Duggan) that managed it. Brian Joines, however, has stepped up to the Christmas comic challenge and has emerged victorious thanks to his delightfully wicked “hero” and his own twisted sense of humor.
