Xmas Carol Trailer

09.14.2009

CAROL poster

There's been so many adaptations of Dickens' A Christmas Carol that any new take on the story really has to offer something completely kick-ass or out of the box to make it interesting. Robert Zemeckis has Jim Carrey's motion capture in 3D. *cough*

Just in time to celebrate the few months that remain before Christmas time, Yahoo Movies posted a new HD theatrical trailer for the CG film which contains aside from Carrey the voices of Gary Oldman, Callum Blue (Mason!!!) Robin Wright Penn, Bob Hoskins and Michael J. Fox. I have to give it to Bob, those are great casting choices. Especially Fox - always good to see him (or hear...) back in action.

The film opens in wide release November 6th. Sounds a little strange to open a month and a half before Christmas, but I guess they just want to profit from an initial release AND gloat of a business increase when kids are out of school. Not that I'll bring my kids to see that, they probably still hate me for having them watch POLAR EXPRESS.

The new trailer is right down there, or in HD RIGHT HERE.

Extra Tidbit: The Muppets' take on that story is one of the few Christmas movies I can bare to watch.

I'm not sure about this, i feel like i've seen the full film now. Carrey seems to have done a pretty decent performance. and it should be good in 3d.

Polar

The Polar Express has turned into one of my fav Christmas films ever since the day I saw it. It captures that Winter feeling so well and it's such an underrated film. Can't wait for this. [link]

Pure dull generic shit. Zemeckis seriously needs to stop wasting our time with this CG shit, and make another BTTF!!! FOR FUCK'S SAKE!

We have to be reminded of back to the future and Forrest gump because it's so long since he made a good movie.

This looked promising for a while but the CGI still looks shit and creepy. I don't care how realistic it's supposed to look it still doesn't stand up against up or any of that stuff.

He needs to step away from this because CGI is not his fortay. How may movies does he need to do poorly in the box office before he gets this?

I'm not trying to be mean i just want more movies

I'm not trying to be mean i just want more movies like Back to The Future and Forrest Gump. These mo cap things are awful.

I am also now way more apprehensive about yellow submarine.

Looks like Zemekis' boner for technology MIGHT actually pay off this time, although I'd much rather see him go back to the basics. What happened to the guy that did Forrest Gump?

I'm gonna have to decline on this one. I hate when they say "Like nothing you've ever seen", even though it is, in fact, exactly what I've seen... a hundred times over. I'm sure they're referring to the 3D and the confusing animation (are they going for realism or cartoonish?), but I feel like I've already seen this movie. Because I have. Many times.

Carol

Went on the promotional train. It was some pretty cool stuff. Saw ten minutes of the film that literally blew everyone out of the water. The eyes look great, and the visuals are stunning. The 3-D gives it a certain depth that is a must see. Gary Oldman also plays Tiny Tim and Bob Crachett, Jim Carrey sits in for all the spirits, Scrooge as a child, teenager, young man, middle aged, and the elderly one pictured in the trailer. I have to hand it to Bob, the Motion Capture is brilliant and nearly

I have to hand it to Bob, the Motion Capture is brilliant and nearly perfected. I'm definitely going to give it a view.
