Movie Fanatic has seen the first 30 minutes of Arthur Christmas and thus far, it is a true Christmas present to movie fans everywhere. Now news has broken that a certain pop star will be singing the song that plays while the final credits roll and nothing could be more apt. Justin Bieber will be singing Santa Claus Is Comin’ to Town over Arthur Christmas’ closing credits, and the song will also be available on his upcoming Christmas album.
Before the film begins, audiences will also get to see the exclusive video of Santa Claus Is Comin' to Town, only for Arthur Christmas' audiences.
“It was important to us to have a song that connected with the film’s themes -- and you couldn’t ask for a better match than Santa Claus Is Comin’ To Town -- but our choice was about much more than that,” said Lia Vollack, President, Worldwide Music for Sony Pictures. “We saw an opportunity to give our moviegoers a tremendous added value with a brand-new music video premiering in theaters. We had a great experience working with Justin on The Karate Kid, so we’re thrilled to be working with him again and premiering his new video with our movie -- it’s a perfect fit for our movie’s core audience.”
Arthur Christmas lands in theaters November 23 and from what we’ve seen so far, it is one perfect holiday gift.
Bieber fans should also rejoice in the fact that his first single from the soon-to-be-released Yuletide album, Mistletoe, will play over the film’s upcoming trailers.
