Holiday ‘Halls’ bedecked

Fox partygoers hit the bowling lanes after pic's preem

HOLLYWOOD — With the success of “Borat,” one might guess next year Fox will go with “Christmas in Kazakhstan” for its annual yuletide pic. This year, however, it’s “Deck the Halls,” which preemed Sunday at the Chinese.

Though “Halls” is about as different from “Borat” as Kazakhstan is from Switzerland, Fox co-topper Jim Gianopulos said it shows the spectrum of the studio’s lineup: “The audience is diverse, and movies need to be, too,” he said.

Aud at the preem was a raucous family mix that segued to the Lucky Strike bowling alley for the after-party.
