"Jack Frost" in theaters Dec. 11
Here's a little snippet from this week's Entertainment Weekly (Nov. 20) about the new film release "Jack Frost":
"Sound treacly? Hey, at least the Taylor-Thomas character has a dad to go home to. Not so for the unfortunate young boy (Joseph Cross) in Warner Bros. "Jack Frost," opening Dec. 11. One wintry night, the child's musician father (Michael Keaton) dies in a car accident. Dad boomerangs back to this mortal coil to visit his child and wife (Kelly Preston) as the cool, titular dude -- a snowman brought to life by computer-animated simulations and full-size figures from Jim Henson's creature shop."
The Creature Shop created a fully articulated animatronic head for our pal Frosty that was so good that it apparently blew the people at Warner Brothers away. This should be a great film for families during the holiday season.
