Do you ever feel like Christmas has been hijacked? There’s all that commercialism and people that want to replace “Merry Christmas” with “Happy Holidays” or “Season’s Greetings”… whatever that means… This is the start of what you are about to witness.
I saw the poster for Kirk Cameron‘s new movie Saving Christmas earlier today, but held off on posting it, but now that the trailer has been released there is no sense in holding back any longer. The tagline alone – “Putting Christ Back in Christmas” – is ridiculous enough, but to know the film follows Cmaeron’s attempt to convince his friend, who just so happens to be named Christian, the real spirit of Christmas has not disappeared is a bit too much for me to handle. Then you watch the trailer and, well, see for yourself.
By the way, Mr. Cameron, “Happy Holidays” and “Season’s Greetings” mean exactly what they sound like. I don’t have any issue with Cameron having his own beliefs but the whole “Christmas is Under Attack” thing that comes around every year is such a nuisance.
The film hits theaters in “limited engagements” on November 14, but if the response is anything like that of Cameron’s Fireproof back in 2008, which ended up bringing in $33+ million on a $500,000 budget, I expect this release to be more than limited. I’d even guess the budget on this one was even smaller given the fact this film seems to have been a three location shoot — a car, a house and a sound stage.
