‘Kranks’ banish Yuletide sneer

Celebs celebrate 'Christmas' at pic bow

A week and a half before Thanksgiving is none too early for a Yuletide bow in movieland.

And Revolution Studios and Columbia Pictures’ “Christmas With the Kranks” pulled out all the stops to ensure the audience got into the proper holiday spirit at Monday’s Gotham preem.

Santa and Rockettes in glowing reindeer horns treated a packed house of popcorn-chomping tots to a stage show before the Radio City Music Hall screening. Helmer Joe Roth then introduced the cast and scribes, joking, “We had to stop Tim Allen from running after” the Rockettes, only to have Allen appear on stage escorted by one of the leggy dancers.

The tented Central Park after-party was a holiday wonderland complete with carolers, go-go elf girls dancing to holiday music spun by DJ elf and plenty of eggnog.

On hand: Col’s Amy Pascal and Michael Lynton, plus Revolution’s Tom Sherak and Rob Moore.
