Rise of the Guardians 3D

Animated adventure from DreamWorks (ShrekKung Fu Panda) about a group of Holiday legends - Santa Claus (voiced by Alec Baldwin), the Easter Bunny (Hugh Jackman), the Toothy Fairy (Isla Fisher) and Jack Frost (Chris Pine) - who set out to stop Pitch the Boogeyman (Jude Law), who is hellbent on sending the world into "eternal darkness".

This is based on a series of yet-to-be-published books by William Joyce called The Guardians of Childhood. Joyce is also the author of A Day with Wilbur Robinson, which became the 2007 Disney movie Meet the Robinsons.
