MovieTrailerby Joey Paur

Anyone interested in watching The Nutcracker like you've never seen it before!? Yeah, me neither. The first trailer has been released for the new 3D Nutcracker movie, based on the classic Andrei Konchalovsky Christmas story. The film stars Elle Fanning, John Turturro, Nathan Lane and Charlie Rowe

I think the movie looks like a piece of crap, but that doesn't mean some of you might not like what you see. It's definitely the most stylized and action packed version of The Nutcracker that's been developed, and I'm sure the kiddies will enjoy it, but this film just doesn't look interesting to me at all. 

Synopsis:

From the imagination of acclaimed Russian director Andrei Konchalovsky, the cherished story of The Nutcracker will be brought to life in spectacular 3D this holiday season. THE NUTCRACKER IN 3D follows nine-year-old Mary (Elle Fanning) whose dull Viennese Christmas is suddenly filled with excitement and adventure following the arrival of her beloved Uncle Albert (Nathan Lane) and his gift of an enchanted nutcracker. On Christmas night, Mary's new friend, The Nutcracker (Charlie Rowe) or "NC," comes to life and takes her on a wondrous journey into his magical world of fairies, sugarplums, and other Christmas toys which come to life. Mary soon realizes that this fantastical kingdom is facing danger from the tyrannical rule of the evil Rat King (John Turturro) and his devious mother (Frances de la Tour). When NC is taken hostage, Mary and her newfound toy friends must uncover the secret of the Rat King to rescue NC and his kingdom. Based on the story that inspired acclaimed Russian composer Piotr Tchaikovsky to create the music for the iconic ballet, the film includes eight exciting new songs penned by Oscar-winning lyricist and librettist Sir Tim Rice (The Lion King, Evita, Jesus Christ Superstar).
