Sony Pictures just released the trailer for the upcoming holiday animation flick Arthur Christmasand I gotta say, it looks oddly hilarious. The film stars James McAvoy (known for kickin’ toosh inWanted), Hugh Laurie, Jim Broadbent, and Imelda Staunton and is directed by Barry Cook (Mulan). Arthur Christmas is the next animated movie from Aardman Animation, the hilariously witty team behind Wallace and Gromit. Yet while Wallace was shot using clay-mation, Arthur will be in CGI. But this movie has another interesting behind-the-scenes factoid…one of the writers, Peter Baynham, helped write the stories for both Borat and Bruno. This is probably one of the last films I would expect someone like that to work on, but now I am particularly excited. Animated films usually shine most when there is witty adult humor thrown into the kiddy shenanigans, and I can only expect all that and more from one of the minds responsible for getting Sacha Baron Cohen to seduce Ron Paul.
