With just over one hundred days until Christmas (yes… I know…), Sky has dropped a trailer for ‘A Boy Called Christmas’, an original movie based on the bestselling book by Matt Haig.
The film follows an ordinary young boy called Nikolas who sets out on an extraordinary adventure into the snowy north in search of his father who is on a quest to discover the fabled village of the elves, Elfhelm.

Gil Kenan (‘Monster House’, ‘Ghostbusters: Afterlife’) directs the live-action magical adventure from a screenplay by Ol Parker (‘Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again’, ‘The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel’) and Kenan, adapted from the bestselling book by Matt Haig. The film is produced by STUDIOCANAL with Graham Broadbent and Pete Czernin of BAFTA and Academy Award-winning Blueprint Pictures.
