'A Christmas Carol' Featurette with Jim Carrey & Robert Zemeckis

Yesterday a new Japanese trailer for Robert Zemeckis' A Christmas Carol hit the web. Not only was it too low quality, but it just wasn't that exciting, so I decided not to feature. I'm glad I decided to wait, because a new featurette just hit the web today that not only includes a lot of great new footage in it, but also includes some interviews with Jim Carrey and Robert Zemeckis. It's not truly a behind-the-scenes featurette per se, because it doesn't show us how this made, but instead features the two talking about their collaboration in bringing the Charles Dickens' tale to life. It's a great little featurette that I suggest everyone check out.

A Christmas Carol is both written and directed by filmmaker extraordinaire Robert Zemeckis, of everything from Back to the Future to Who Framed Roger Rabbit to Forrest Gump to Contact to his past CGI movies The Polar Express and Beowulf previously. It's based on Charles Dickens' classic story. Jim Carrey stars as at least four different characters in the film, alongside of Gary Oldman, Robin Wright Penn, Colin Firth, Cary Elwes, and Bob Hoskins. Disney will debut A Christmas Carol in theaters on November 6th this fall.
I gotta say the character models look like something from a PS2 video game. I don't see much improvement in the character look from Polar Express, in fact it looks a bit worse. Everything else looks beautiful.

#1 I would have completely agreed with that statement had I not seen the extended clip in 3D at the cinema.. these characters look so much better on the big screen and in 3d they take on a whole new level of realism - you kinda feel like you're in the theatre.

Do we really need another Christmas Carol movie?

Why are all the ghosts carrying chains, keys, chests and padlocks?
