A Christmas Carol trailer online in HD
This feels like trailer Thursday as there's another new trailer just arrived. This one is for Robert Zemeckis' A Christmas Carol, the director's 3D motion capture latest.
It stars Jim Carrey, Gary Oldman, Robin Wright Penn, Colin Firth, Michael J. Fox, Cary Elwes and Bob Hoskins. Notice Penn and Elwes in there? Is that the second time they've starred together? It's been a while.
The trailer looks good, although there's loads of swooshing of the camera, things coming head on and very close to the screen, and you can tell by watching the trailer that it's a 3D film, even from the opening credits. I do wish that everyone would take leaf out of James Cameron's book and treat 3D as another element of the film like lighting rather than gearing every shot towards exploiting it.
You can imagine if they treated lighting in the same way, we'd be leaping from dark to light shots and have strobe, disco-like effects throughout.
