Celebrate The Holidays With “RiffTrax Live: Santa Claus Conquers The Martians”

You better watch out, you better not cry, ‘cause Santa Claus is coming… to Mars? The stars of RiffTrax —Michael J. Nelson, Kevin Murphy and Bill Corbett (best known for the groundbreaking “Mystery Science Theater 3000 ® ”)— are back for a hilarious all-new take on a family ‘classic’ with “ RiffTrax Live: Santa Claus Conquers the Martians on Thursday, Dec. 5, 2013 at 8:00 p.m. ET / 7:00 p.m. CT and tape delayed at 7:00 p.m. MT and 8:00 p.m PT/HI/AK. NCM Fathom Events, RiffTrax and IGN will present RiffTrax’s first big-screen holiday event since the beloved “RiffTrax Live: Christmas Shorts-Stravaganza” in 2009 with “Weird Al” Yankovic . This festive season event, a riff on one of the most popular titles in the MST3K catalog, is set to be an uproarious night for naughty and nice alike.

Tickets for “ RiffTrax Live: Santa Claus Conquers the Martians,” are available at participating theater box offices and online at www.FathomEvents.com. The event will be broadcast to more than 570 select movie theaters across the country through NCM’s exclusive Digital Broadcast Network. For a complete list of theater locations and prices, visit the NCM Fathom Events website ( theaters and participants are subject to change).

"I'm excited to be revisiting this gem, not only because it promises to be a lot of fun, but also because it just wouldn't be the holidays without those beloved Yuletide characters Kimar, Voldar, Hargo, and of course that shockingly stupid Martian, Droppo!” said Michael J. Nelson, RiffTrax creator and former host of the Emmy-nominated, Peabody Award-winning “Mystery Science Theater 3000.”

Many have forgotten (or choose to forget) the Santa/Martian wars of 1964 , and “Santa Claus Conquers the Martians” bravely attempts to set the record straight. Martian parents Kimar and Momar become concerned that their children Bomar and Girmar have become too attached to television programs from Earth. Their solution is brilliant — if a bit of a non sequitur— they decide to kidnap Santa Claus! The nasty Martian villain Voldar captures two Earth children, Billy and Betty, along with Santa and heads off for Mars. Only the bravery of Billy and Betty and the bumbling of a stowaway and “the laziest man on Mars,” Droppo, can foil Voldar’s evil plans.

“Kris Kringle vs. Martians is the perfect riff-fodder and we can’t wait to see what the RiffTrax guys have in store for this live, big screen event,” said Shelly Maxwell, executive vice president of NCM Fathom Events. “One thing’s for sure, all fans should expect to have their stockings filled with laughs.”
