does anyone know if there will be any new xmas films this year?

Hi

I love watching Christmas films and was wondering if anyone knew of any new films being released this year? I apologise if this has already been covered, I havent been on here in a while and I dont fancy searching through 3000 posts in my absence, lol.

If you go up to the "Christmas in the News" forum you'll see a few postings about made for TV movies and new theatrical releases. The only I've heard about so far this year is another Vince Vaughn comedy in which he stars with Reese Witherspoon about a newlywed couple who have to juggle Christmas with both of their divorced sets of parents. Can't remember what it is called, want to say "Four Christmases" or something of the sort. They evidently have scenes mocking the Nativity in it, so expectations are very low.

"Jingle Bell Rocks"

Thouugh I know this isn't exactly what you mean Kelly Ann, we obsessive Christmas music enthusiasts (most of which hang out at FaLaLaLaLa.com) can't wait for this!:

Kezine's latest blog entry includes an excerpt from an interview with Bob Dorough. You deep below the surface Christmas music fans will instantly recognize Bob from his composition of and vocals on "Blue Xmas (To Whom It May Concern)". For the surface skimmers, this is a collaboration with Miles Davis from the early sixties.

To my understanding, there will be more interview excerpts forthcoming. Hear them here - http://jinglebellrocks.blogspot.com/
