Hey friends, Shep here and I’ve got a little something special for the four or five people out there clamoring for yet another adaptation of A Christmas Carol, the beloved Charles Dickens novel.
Here’s the first poster released for this winter’s 3D-motion-capture-animated version of the story that will star Jim Carrey as Ebenezer Scrooge as well as the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future. To further the casting craziness for this one, Gary Oldman is playing Bob Cratchit, Jacob Marley, and Tiny Tim! Woah.
It’s been directed by Robert Zemeckis, who has fiddled with motion-capture in the past on the films The Polar Express and Beowulf. This one could really go either way, I think. I’ll withhold judgment until I see a trailer.
The poster is below and looks exactly like what any decent Christmas Carol poster ought to look like. Click and it shall grow.
