Carrey On Christmas

It might be a little bit early to talk about Christmas (three months and counting) but I’m still unsure how I feel about Robert Zemeckis’ steady decline in terms of movie-making. True, very little of what he’s made has been poor, but there’s a big difference between the Back To The Future movies and Beowulf.

But I’m slightly more optimistic about his CGI take on A Christmas Carol, starring Jim Carrey as Scrooge (and the ghosts) and presented in Disney 3D. To be honest, I can’t much stand Charles Dickens, but there’s something about his Christmas tale of mizerly Scrooge that has always appealed to me and I really enjoy reading it or checking out some of the adaptations around the season.

You can check out the trailer below, but at least it’s steering clear of the uncanny valley that The Polar Express journeyed through. Certainly, judging from the trailer, there’s nothing to indicate that this may be nearly as good as seeing Bill Murray or Patrick Stewart in the role.

A Christmas Carol is due for release in 3D (selected cinemas) and 2D in UK and Ireland on 6th November.
