There is, in short order, going to be a family movie blood bath at the box office this holiday weekend, with "Arthur Christmas," "Hugo" and "The Muppets" all arriving in theaters. While all three films certainly deserve merit, "Arthur Christmas," with its surprisingly complex themes and glittery animation, is probably the most unexpected and the least pre-sold (since it's not based on a best-selling book or long-running franchise). But don't let its underdog status fool you: this is big, bright, bristling piece of entertainment and totally deserves your Thanksgiving dollars. We got a chance to speak to "Arthur Christmas" co-writer/director Sarah Smith and co-star Bill Nighy (who plays Grandsanta) about what it was like to be part of a new holiday classic.
