CHRISTMAS CAROL on the BBC with Guy Pearce
#1




Trailer's interesting, as it looks like far and away the darkest adaptation I've ever seen. Also, notably not using the familiar dialogue from Dickens. Curious how far they push that. Andy Serkis as a ghost will be fun.

Damn, that looks great. I love the story - the George C Scott version is my favorite, followed closely by the Alastair Sim version.

But it looks like they manage to do something a bit new or different with the story without veering from its central premise. And Serkis is fucking genius casting.

Pearce, I love, but he feels a bit young for the role.

Serkis is enough to get me to watch a non-Muppets production of the story.

I'm gonna pass unless the reviews are absolutely stellar. I've seen enough versions of this story to satisfy my viewing needs.

Besides, nothing's gonna top the MUPPET version.
