The first official trailer for the upcoming Charles Dickens biopic THE MAN WHO INVENTED CHRISTMAS has been released.
The film follows the famous writer (Dan Stevens) as he creates the classic tale, A Christmas Carol. Director Bharat Nalluri (Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day) creates a whimsical interpretation of how the young author mixed real life inspirations with his vivid imagination to create iconic characters that have changed the holiday season as we know it.
Dan Stevens played Beast in Disney’s live action remake of Beauty and the Beast this year. He can also be seen on FX’s Legion, or my personal favorite role in 2014’s The Guest.
Christopher Plummer also stars as Dickens’ father, who is the inspiration for the mean-spirited Ebenezer Scrooge.
Bleecker Street is releasing the film in theaters November 22, check out the trailer below.
