Now that Halloween is over, the next big international holiday is Christmas. Sorry America, but Thanksgiving Day does not count. To debut this film on Nov 24,. 2017 (the day after) will have some people flocking to theatres instead of shopping centers for a delightful film than deals from last year’s merchandise.
The Man Who Invented Christmas may well become the underdog for the season for those wanting a bit of cheery holiday humbug and an understanding of why this story is such a classic.
This movie directed by Bharat Nalluri and written by Susan Coyne looks at how A Christmas Carol came about. It has Dan Stevens (Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb) playing the role of Dickens, Christopher Plummer as Scrooge and Jonathan Pryce as John Dickens (the father).
This film will reveal shows how Dickens mixed real-life inspirations with his vivid imagination to conjure up unforgettable characters and a timeless tale, forever changing the holiday season into the celebration we know today.
This movie will debut in the UK, Dec 1st.
