Polar Express - Trailer

I like this movie, it is far from perfect, but it is a fine holiday film. The powers that be seem to be intent on making this an annual classic, but I am not sure it has what it takes to fill that role. The book is certainly a classic, the film is another story. Robert Zemeckis directed the adaptation with Tom Hanks taking a number of roles. It is also notable for its use of performance capture technology, it clearly has a long way to go, but you have to start somewhere, right? The faces are a little creepy, I don't like th hot choclate song, and I don't like the Steven Tyler elf, but the rest, yeah, I can get behind that.
