The international one-sheet for Robert Zemeckis’s newest motion-capture opus, A Christmas Carol has hit the internet. It stars a very old Jim Carrey looking curmudgeonly and made from the smoke billowing from a burning-child candle. Or maybe that’s the ghost of christmas past.
I’m still not sold on this movie. I mean, after they do a muppet movie about something, I kind of think the “re-imagining” mill should be closed. How many versions of this story have been put to screen now?
It might be good…it might be bad…but I’ll bet it will be mostly forgotten pretty quickly. Still, I do kind of wonder what Jim Carrey is going to do with what has traditionally been the straight role. I’m guessing he goes all over-the-top Jimmy Stewart in It’s a Wonderful Life.
