Summer of 2012 is barely over and we’re already running headlong into the holiday season with this new trailer for A Christmas Story 2. The official sequel is (thankfully) going straight to Blu-ray/DVD and you can pick it up with the original in a combo two-pack (only on DVD) on October 30th. The follow-up film once again centers on Ralphie, his family and friends on the approach to yet another Christmas. In the true spirit of the holiday, A Christmas Story 2 seeks to feed off of the nostalgia for the original film like a parasite and trick you into wasting your hard-earned money. Season’s greetings!
Directed by Brian Levant (Jingle All the Way - which I actually liked…), A Christmas Story 2 stars Braeden Lemasters (Easy A) as Ralphie with Stacey Travis (Ghost World) playing the mother and Daniel Stern (Home Alone) as the Old Man. (C’mon, Stern. I know times are tough, but you can do better!) Hit the jump to watch the trailer.
