The Netflix movie's veteran producer and helmer Clay Kaytis talk about creating Kurt Russell's "tough guy," Elvis-singing Santa Claus; casting non-Hollywood kids; and those 'Gremlins' echoes. [The following story contains mild spoilers from The Christmas Chronicles.] With their new family holiday film for Netflix, The Christmas Chronicles, director Clay Kaytis (The Angry Birds Movie) and producer Chris Columbus (Home Alone, Mrs. Doubtfire, Gremlins) hope to provide a fresh spin on the magic of Christmas. The movie stars Kurt Russell as a grizzled Santa Claus on a mission to save Christmas and features a 21st century reimagining of Yuletide staples like the North Pole and Santa's sleigh. It was the combination of classic Christmas lore and new mythology that spoke to Kaytis, an animation veteran making his live-action directorial debut. "What really hooked me were some of the concepts in Matt [Lieberman]'s original script of how Santa delivers gifts, how he gets to the North Pole, just … [Read more...] about How Chris Columbus, ‘Christmas Chronicles’ Director Put a Fresh Spin on the Holiday Family Film

Earlier today, Disney held its live-action films panel at the D23 Expo, where the studio unveiled new footage and details for its upcoming slate, including upcoming Marvel movies, Star Wars: The Last Jedi and much more. The studio also announced a few changes to its release slate, pushing the highly-anticipated Mulan live-action movie out of its previously-announced November 2, 2018 release date, and into an unspecified date in 2019. While no specific date was given, Disney has already staked out two dates for 2019 movies, on November 8, 2019 and December 20, 2019, so it's possible this project could take one of those slots.

Speaking from his home in Toronto, Snow is still baffled that his reggae-hip-hop merger “Informer” topped charts and moved millions of copies over 25 years ago. “That’s a jail song,” he says, still sounding surprised. “It’s not, ‘Baby, I love you.’ I wrote that song in jail about informers. But people didn’t know what I was singing.” When no one was looking, “Informer” — with its pumping beat, spit-fire patois and “licky boom-boom down” hook — has refused to go away. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler danced to it in the 2015 comedy Sisters, Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon included it in one of their “History of Rap” medleys on The Tonight Show, and Drake sang a portion of it during a recent Juno Awards tribute to Canadian music. Last year saw the release of a slew of EDM remixes of the song, and a buzzed-about Irish sitcom Derry Girls (available on Netflix) featured … [Read more...] about Winter Is Here: Inside the Return of ‘Informer’ Rapper Snow
