It’s day 9 of our very own special Christmas Movie Advent Calendar, the Screen One Christmas Movie Countdown. Join with us as we continue to countdown to Christmas with a new movie to watch each day as the days get ever closer to the big day. All films are availble via various streaming and terrestrial TV services.
Day 9 – Arthur Christmas (Netflix)
Each Christmas, Santa and his vast army of highly trained elves produce gifts and distribute them around the world in one night. However, when one of 600 million children to receive a gift from Santa on Christmas Eve is missed, it is deemed ‘acceptable’ to all but one—Arthur. Arthur Claus is Santa’s misfit son who executes an unauthorised rookie mission to get the last present half way around the globe before dawn on Christmas morning.
Today’s Christmas Movie Countdown goives you the wonderful Arthur Christmas, a delightful animated adventure, with the whole of the Christmas family joining in to save Christmas for one little girl who might lose the meaning of Christmas if her present isn’t delivered and the chaos that ensues when Arthur takes it upon himself to make the delivery. There’s some real excitement to be had here for all ages as the clock counts down and some real laughs too, primarily brought to you by Screen One favourite Bill Nighy as Grandsanta.
If you’re behind on the countdown you can catch up via the links below the poster. Enjoy.
