It is already Christmas on Netflix, evidenced by the arrival there a few days already for the film Clay Kaytis : The Chronicles of Christmas.
Once is not custom, Netflix has obliged to reveal the figures of hearings of one of his films for its first week. The Chronicles of Christmas Clay Kaytis, with Kurt Russell brought together more than 20 million users since its release on November 22.
Ted Sarandos, head of content for Netflix, spoke at the conference UBS Global Media. After quick calculations, it would seem that gather as much of the world in a week or the equivalent at the box office opening week to $ 200 million, according to him.
“Look, there’s Kurt Russell”
“Even with the many successes of his career, [Kurt Russell] has never gathered as much of the world to go see one of his films during their first week (…) Even films that are more than a billion do not have weeks of apertures as good” .
In comparison, Avengers : Infinity War has received a little over $ 257 million (at home) in its first week and is now no. 4 of the international box-office with more than 2 billion cashed.
The recipe for this success has the same taste as the yule log of our grand-mother, known and recognized but tasty : two children, Father Christmas, his sleigh, elves and snow. The Chronicles of Christmas puts in sene Teddy and Kate Pierce, a brother and sister who want to see Father Christmas. They decide to film it in the evening on new year’s eve, and when it happens, run and hide in his sleigh. From there, the misadventures one after the other and we follow the trio in a magical night, worthy of the wildest dreams.
Teddy and Kate to the rescue Christmas
The 20 million users, announced by Netflix, show that the so-called ” christmas movie “, sometimes considered obsolete, has not said its last word. Here, it is the product of a collaboration between the director of Kuzco, the emperor’s megalomaniac, Volt, star malgré lui, and Rapunzel, Clay Kaytis, and one of the first two Harry Potter, Chris Columbus (producer for The Chronicles of Christmas). The result is full of vitality, full of good mood and a little quirky thanks to the Father Christmas portrayed by Kurt Russell.
The actor went on to filming. Between The Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Fast & Furious 8 , and The Chronicles of Christmas, he plays the chameleon. His next project is signed by Quentin Tarantino, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood will be in theatres the 14th of August 2019.
