Yes… you read that correctly. There is A Christmas Story, part 2. I was surpried too when I first learned about it.
My family watches A Christmas Story faithfully every holiday season. We usually watch it at least once before Christmas Eve. Then on Christmas Eve, all the way through until Christmas evening, we watch it several times during the A Christmas Story marathon on TBS. We always make sure to catch the ending scene at the Chinese restaurant when it’s aired for the last time. In a way it signifies that Christmas is over. It’s hard not to get a little sad.
A Christmas Story is a story about an adorable young boy name Ralphie who dreams of getting a Red Rider gun for Christmas. In A Christmas Story 2, Ralphie is all grown up and this time he’s looking for something bigger and better – a car!
Here is the trailer for A Christmas Story 2. If you are reading this via e-mail you can see the trailer here,
I know it’s not the original (let’s face it… nothing can touch the original), but it still looks like a fun movie. It’s being released on Blu-ray and DVD combo pack and Digital Download on October 30, 2012 – just in time for the holiday season. Look for the film where ever movies are sold.
Thanks to Warner Bros. Home Entertainment I have a copy of A Christmas Story 2 (Blu-ray combo pack) to give to a lucky reader.
