Kurt Russell Finally Plays Santa Claus In First THE CHRISTMAS CHRONICLES Trailer

If you ever had a crush on Santa, this is the movie for you.

Kurt Russell is the coolest motherfucker on the planet. As such, he can do whatever he wants. Which, apparently, includes this:

That, ladies and gentlemen, is a trailer for The Christmas Chronicles, a Netflix movie starring Kurt Russell as Santa Claus, that is also produced by Chris Columbus. Until today, I had no idea it even existed.

And hey, it does look kind of charming. That might be mostly the Kurt Russell factor, though. It’s hard to dislike the guy, especially with that big-ass beard. The plot appears to be about a couple kids who try to catch Santa on camera and end up causing a Christmas crisis everyone must work together to avoid. I dunno. Sounds okay, even if I’m not super big on Santa movies in general. I mean, let’s not pretend we’re here for anything other than Kurt Russell.

The Christmas Chronicles hits Netflix November 22.
