Arthur Christmas unwraps a second teaser trailer

A second teaser for Aardman Animations' first 3D movie Arthur Christmas has landed online.

And it’s sort of hit and miss. Like the film’s first teaser, it plays with the idea of talking to the camera, while introducing the titular goofball Arthur.

Thing is, James McAvoy’s just annoying as Arthur, which is unfortunate considering he’s the movie’s lead.

Luckily, most of the attention is given to Santa’s elves, who are portrayed as military-style workers who are highly trained in the art of warfare. Or, uh, gift-wrapping.

They’re easily going to steal the show.

Check out the new teaser below…

Arthur Christmas opens 11 November.
