Beautifully Designed German Poster for A Christmas Carol

We still haven't seen a real trailer for Robert Zemeckis' A Christmas Carol yet, but we do have another poster to share with you. Our friends at DVD-Forum.at have posted a beautifully designed full-size German poster for Zemeckis' latest CGI feature. I wouldn't have thought much about this at first, but the design with the candle flame creating his silhouette is just exceptional. It's a much darker and much more sleek poster than the US one that we debuted back in May. I doubt we'll see a US version of this same poster or even see this marketing material show up anywhere else, but I at least wanted to feature it. Check it out full below!
I was actually shown the trailer for A Christmas Carol and it does look good - so stay tuned for it soon!
An animated retelling of Charles Dickens' classic about a Victorian-era miser named Ebenezer Scrooge who is taken on a journey of self-redemption, courtesy of several mysterious Christmas apparitions.
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. This is 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 got to see what was called the Disney Train, that featured this film. we were shown a screening of the trailer for the film in 3d and it was awesome, solid animation, acting, and was very promising!

I bet it's gonna be great! However, I can guarantee it won't even touch "Mickey's Christmas Carol" as far as lasting power

As a kindergarten teacher, I can tell you that poster, cool as it is, will scare some American kids.
