"How do you make a world come alive?" Thunderbird Releasing has launched the UK trailer for the new holiday drama titled The Man Who Invented Christmas, telling the story of Charles Dickens and the creation of the character Ebenezer Scrooge from A Christmas Carol. Dan Stevens stars as Dickens, and Christopher Plummer plays Scrooge, in this tale that mixes reality and imagination to tell us the story of how Dickens created this characters that would "forever change the holiday season into the celebration we know today." Also starring Jonathan Pryce, Simon Callow, Donald Sumpter, Miriam Margolyes, Ian McNeice, Bill Paterson, and Justin Edwards. We already featured the first US trailer last month, and while this looks intriguing, I'm not too sure it's going to become the next holiday classic. Watch below.

Maybe it's the hair, but I'm getting a Gene Wilder vibe in Steven's performance. Which is a very good thing, of course.

Christopher Plummer's performance might buy me into this. Other than that looks like a standard flick ...
