    The best Christmas films of the 21st century

    Christmas lends itself very nicely to movie watching. Everyone has time to burn and the entire family is far too full of mince pies and lukewarm leftover turkey to actually muster the energy required to leave the sofa.With that in mind, Christmas films are an indispensable part of the cinema landscape. These are movies people often watch every single year and fall in love with over the course of time. The 21st century has yielded its fair share of festive classics, which already feel as essential to the Christmas experience as trees, presents and the year's most depressing episode of EastEnders.Read more: Things we learned from Paul Feig about Last ChristmasBut which is the best Christmas film of the 21st century? It's time to crunch the numbers. From a longlist of the major festive releases since 2000, we ranked them three times — based on global box office, Rotten Tomatoes critic score and the same site's audience score — and awarded points for the rankings.The result is a (theoretically) definitive list of the best the 21st century has to offer when it comes to Christmas viewing. So settle down with that advent calendar you promised yourself you wouldn't entirely consume before December even starts, and dive in.

    Burberry Christmas ad starring Domhnall Gleeson should be made into a real film, demands the internet

    Around this time each year the festive adverts begin to appear, but the 2016 one for fashion designer Burberry starring Domhnall Gleeson and Sienna Miller has gotten people talking. The short film - which is technically an advert even though it lasts over three-and-a-half minutes - is the latest campaign for the Burberry brand, called ‘The Tale of Thomas Burberry’. Directed by Asif Kapadia, the Oscar-winning documentary maker of ‘Amy’ and the superb ‘Senna’, the short film features some stellar acting talent alongside ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ villain Gleeson and ‘Cinderella’s’ Lily James, with Dominic West completing an impressive roster.

    EXCLUSIVE: Tom Fletcher's book 'The Christmasaurus' to be made into a film - and it has Hugh Jackman's seal of approval

    This morning we were invited to the launch of Tom Fletcher’s newest book, and first novel, ‘The Christmasaurus’, and we have to admit that we weren’t quite prepared for what followed – which genuinely included cameo appearances from Hollywood actors Hugh Jackman and Zac Efron. After talking us through the synopsis of his heartfelt book, which is released on Thursday, the McFly frontman dropped a rather huge clanger by announcing that it was  already being turned into an animated, musical film with bigshot director, Michael Gracey, and they even had the concept art to show us and a couple of songs to perform. Unfortunately, Michael Gracey was busy in New York filming his latest movie, but he did send a video message about his involvement with the film, which was promptly interrupted by actors Hugh and Zac, who gatecrashed the video to reinforce just how bloomin’ good ‘The Christmasaurus’ is.
