We’ve been talking about the new Disney 3D movie A Christmas Carol since the first poster came out during Cannes earlier this year. With Robert Zemeckis (Polar Express) directing and Jim Carrey (Ace Ventura) starring as Ebenezer Scrooge, the Charles Dickens’ classic tale is sure to be a hit with audiences.
Today we bring you the official teaser trailer for A Christmas Carol as well as the first TV spot and a new still for you to enjoy.
Enough talking, let’s watch the trailer.
And now the TV spot:
And finally, the new still from A Christmas Carol:
There is no denying that the imagery used is glorious and will look outstanding on an IMAX screen but we can only hope that the use of 3D technology is the same as in UP and helps enhance the movie and not make it gimmicky. I admit that I was a bit hesitant at first to be excited for this film for that very reason but I’m slowly coming around.
The details of the characters on screen, especially Scrooge, are astounding and amazingly high in places. Although there is still work to be done with some of the other human faces, it would appear that the majority of the work was spent Carrey’s motion capture of Scrooge (or the other 7 characters he plays in this movie!). Makes sense, it is after all, a part written for him.
What do you think of the new trailer for A Christmas Carol? Does it sway you into watching it in theaters or are you still “Bah! Humbug!” about it?
