Review – Kringle Time

Kringle Time is a new dark comedy feature debut from director Matthew Lucas, who self-produced and financed the project with writer Zan Gillies. The film is out now in North America on TVOD, BluRay & DVD from Gravitas Ventures.

When Kringles (Vernon Wells, “The Road Warrior,” “Commando”) — the singing, dancing snowman on a popular kids’ show — drops dead on live TV, a citywide crisis brings several small town characters out of the woodwork. To keep the ship afloat, a down-on-his-luck station manager named Jerry (Benny Elledge, “Happy,” “Gotham”) must don the Kringles costume himself. But the cast and crew are rooting against him, the added pressure is too much for his girlfriend (Gigi Edgley, “Farscape”), and the mayor (Jeff Wincott, “Night Heat”) won’t stop pestering him about building a pointless memorial statue. To make matters worse, the ghost of Kringles returns to haunt Jerry, revealing a dark secret that he carried to the grave. With Kringles’ reputation on the line, Jerry has to choose what his legacy will be as the man beneath the mask.

In a lawsuit filed Thursday in Los Angeles Superior Court, attorneys for Johansson allege that the actress’s contract was breached when the studio opted not to debut the film exclusively in theaters, a move they claim depressed ticket sales for the Avengers spinoff. Much of Johansson’s compensation was tied to the box office performance of Black Widow — if it hit certain benchmarks, bonuses would kick in.
