I also added the DVD cover for ‘Celebrity Mix’ to the gallery as reference, which contains Amy’s film short, Mr. Dramatic. Gallery links & previews are below, enjoy! :)

‘Dear Santa’ Clips & First Still

Several clips of Amy’s TV movie, Dear Santa, have been released online courtesy of Image Entertainment — the clips are only available for USA residents. However, Trailer Addict have also posted the clips online. The clips & Amy look rather cute. Hopefully, these shall tide you guys over until we can add DVD screencaptures to the gallery!

In other news, I came across a still of Amy in Dear Santa as part of an interview by the Calgary Herald with Amy’s co-star, Patrick Creery, who played the homeless shelter’s chef. Thus, I’ve added the still to the gallery; preview to your right & link below.

And finally, Dear Santa has been airing pretty regularly on TV lately, including Lifetime on Christmas Day, so be sure to check your local listings if you’d like to catch a viewing.

‘Dear Santa’ Trailer & Updated Synopsis

I managed to come across the ‘official’ page for Amy’s upcoming movie, Dear Santa, on the production company website which contains a lovely piece of keyart… and a trailer! I am unable to screencap this at the moment, unfortunately, but it does contain lots of scenes with Amy. It’s wonderful to see her in something new!

We also have another synopsis — which makes a lot more sense than Amazon’s version, in my opinion; posted below. Enjoy!

Wealthy socialite Crystal (Amy Acker – Alias; Angel) finds a sad letter from a little girl asking Santa for a special gift – a new wife for her daddy – and decides this is her chance to change her destiny forever.

Derek (David Haydn Jones – Judging Amy; Buffy The Vampire Slayer) is a model father to seven-year-old Olivia, but a lonely widower and devoted to the local soup kitchen. In contrast, twenty-eight-year-old Crystal is drifting through life with no purpose, spending her time shopping and partying in New York. After discovering Olivia’s letter to Santa she sets out to find the family, tracking Derek down to his beloved soup kitchen where she is mistaken for a volunteer. Suddenly stylish Crystal is donning a hair net and helping out on a regular basis. As she bonds with Olivia and a connection forms with Derek, will their fate be sealed forever?

Pre-Order ‘Dear Santa’ & DVD Artwork

Apologies for the lack of updates lately, it’s been super quiet!

However, we finally have some news on Amy’s Christmas movie, titled Dear Santa — it looks like it’s going to be a straight-to-DVD release. The movie is now available to pre-order from Amazon (Region 1) for the discounted price of $15.99 and shall be available from November 1, 2011.

I’ve also added the super cute DVD artwork to the gallery, which you can preview on your right; gallery link below. There’s no information on DVD extras as of yet, however, there is a synopsis available, also posted below — thanks to Amazon — containing our first glimpse of what this movie is about. Enjoy!

Shopaholic Crystal’s (Amy Acker, Alias) wealthy parents give her an ultimatum: change her irresponsible ways by Christmas or they will cut her off without a cent. With no job or romantic prospects, what’s a party girl to do? Fate intervenes when she finds seven year-old Olivia’s (Emma Duke) letter to Santa asking for a new wife for her widowed dad Derek (David Haydn-Jones). Crystal tracks them down and vows to win over father and daughter before the fast-approaching holiday deadline. Volunteering at Derek’s struggling soup kitchen, Crystal is at first a fish out of water, but she is determined to prove to him and herself that there’s more to her than just shopping and lattes. Only Derek’s jealous and calculating girlfriend (Gina Holden, Harper’s Island) stands between her and her newfound happiness. Share the gift of love and laughter with this heartwarming romantic comedy directed by Jason Priestley (Beverly Hills 90210).

New Movie & ‘Echo 2’ Update

Amy posted on her official Twitter a few days ago to let us know that she is currently filming a new movie in Calgary, Canada, for a few weeks titled Dear Santa — a Christmas comedy — and as a result, sadly isn’t able to attend the ‘Echo 2’ convention in the UK this week.

Amy also stated that she’s still waiting to hear if her new series, Common Law, has been picked up.

Exciting news! Looks like we may have some new material coming our way soon!

EDIT: (April 28) According to IMDB, Amy’s character is called Crystal & the movie has an expected USA release date of December 1, 2011.
