Opening in theaters on November 4th is A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas, the third chapter in the beloved stoner franchise following Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle, and Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay. The movie is helmed by first time director Todd Strauss-Schulson and reunites the previous films stars John Cho (Star Trek), Kal Penn (Superman Returns), and of course ... Neil Patrick Harris (The Smurfs). The film also includes performances by Thomas Lennon (Bad Teacher), Patton Oswalt (Ratatouille), Paula Garces (TV's The Shield), Elias Koteas (The Thin Red Line), Eddie Kaye Thomas (American Pie), David Krumholtz (TV's Numb3rs), Bobby Lee (Pineapple Express), and Danny Trejo (Machete). 

IAR's managing editor Jami Philbrick recently had a chance to sit down with Todd Strauss-Schulson to discuss A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas. The director spoke candidly about his new film; its claymation sequence, making a Christmas movie, Neil Patrick Harris, stoned babies, lesbian nuns, Danny Trejo ejaculating on America, and 3D.

Six years have elapsed since their last adventure, leaving Harold and Kumar (Cho and Penn) estranged from one another with very different families, friends, and lives. But when Kumar arrives on Harold's doorstep during the holiday season with a mysterious package in hand, he inadvertently burns down Harold's father-in-law's (Trejo) beloved Christmas tree. To fix the problem, Harold and Kumar embark on a mission through New York City to find the perfect Christmas tree, once again stumbling into trouble at every single turn.

A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas comes home for the holidays beginning November 4th.
