The Andrei Konchalevsky-directed The Nutcracker in 3D has been acquired by Freestyle Releasing and Cinemarket Films. They bought US rights and will release the film November 24. It stars Elle Fanning as young Mary, Nathan Lane as Uncle Albert and John Turturro as the Rat King. Mary’s boring Viennese Christmas is livened up when Uncle Albert arrives and gifts her with an enchanted nutcracker that comes to life and takes her on a journey to a magical world of Christmas toys come to life. The Tchaikovsky score was supplemented by new songs from Tim Rice. The film was shot on location in Budapest
