    A Christmas Carol (2009)



    Official Trailer -http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VZ3lr3urgDU

    Charles Dickens' timeless tale of an old miser who must face Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Yet-to-Come, as they help to bring kindness to his otherwise cold heart. The Ghosts remind him of the man he used to be, the hard truth of what the world is today, and what will happen if he does not strive to be a better man. Set around Christmas, the most joyous day of the year, Scrooge realizes the sharp contrast of his own personality.

    Jim Carrey plays four separate roles in this updated version of A Christmas Carol. Carrey portrays Scrooge, as well as the three ghosts (Past, Present, and Yet-to-Come). His dynamic character roles keep the four characters as diverse as being played by four actors.

    Robert Zemeckis (Back to the Future trilogy) has his chance to dabble in telling a story through the windows of time, as he directs the long-awaited remake.

    Zemeckis is trying his best in order to succeed with this. He says that Christmas Carol is his favorite book since he was a young boy, so that has been a good reason trying to make a new retelling oft the story..

    I m a huge fan of Christmas Carol, Ive seen all versions and have read everything that has to do with it!! and honstley, I wont say a word until I watch it!!!

    In my country the film is released on 24th December..

    Personally, I'm not a huge Jim Carrey fan, but seeing how this is animated and it's CB's favorite Christmas film, we are planning to go On Friday evening. My personal favorites of the films are......the 1938 version, the 1951 version and Mr Magoo's Christmas Carol.

    I'm looking forward to it - but dissapointed that because this is such a big-budget event there seems to be few/no other Christmas-related movies coming out this year??

    Will likley wait till after my Birthday (Nov 23rd) to go see it though... Although I like doing some planning, etc before then, that's when Christmas really kicks-off for me.
