Finding the North Pole in Film
Posted December 09, 2009 to photo album "Finding the North Pole in Film"
A FilmInFocus slideshow looks at the many North Poles of film.
Slide 12: Polar Express (2004)
Many people wrongly assume that the North Pole is only accessible by flying sleigh. Robert Zemeckis' 2004 “performance capture” animated adventure brings Chris Van Allsburg’s children classic to the screen. In Polar Express, Billy so much wants to believe in Santa Claus, but it isn’t till a magic train (with Tom Hanks as the conductor) transports him and other children to the North Pole that magic of Christmas comes true.
