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.
