‘The Man Who Invented Christmas’ Coming to Christmas Future (and It Looks Pretty Good)

‘The Man Who Invented Christmas’ Coming to Christmas Future (and It Looks Pretty Good) September 7, 2017

We all know ‘A Christmas Carol.’ We’ve seen Ebenezer Scrooge played by Alastair Sim, George C. Scott, Mr. Magoo and Sam the Eagle. He’s as much a part of Christmas as Santa Claus.

Kind of weird to think that, before Charles Dickens came up with the character, the guy didn’t even exist.

The Man Who Invented Christmas tackles A Christmas Carol from a different angle: That of Dickens himself (who, incidentally, just happens to be one of my favorite authors). And frankly, it looks pretty fun.

I love the interplay we see here between the story’s creator and his characters. Dan Stevens’ Dickens looks like a hoot. And Christopher Plummer as Scrooge? Yeah, I’ll be seeing this flick. It’ll be released Nov. 22.
