Marketsaw got a first photo of a standee for A Christmas Carol, Robert Zemeckis’ latest CGIfest, this time based on the Dickens classic. The standee has our first look at Jim Carrey in pixel form as Ebenezer Scrooge; The Bad And Ugly.com got a better look at Jim’s face, which is what we have here.
Ugh. The Polar Express freaked me out with its CGI monstrosities, and it doesn’t look like A Christmas Carol is going to be any improvement when it comes to nightmare generating. Scrooge looks nothing short of freakish, but that freakishness is magnified by his otherwise realistic look. This, friends, is the problem with photoreal characters that are then stylized in any way.
A Christmas Carol is coming out in November.
