This should be very good! He's is always so into every character that he plays that I can't imagine it being bad.

wow...that's scary

Personally I hope it's done in a serious vein. I love the Christmas carol story but I much prefer it done in a non comedic way. I'd say my current favorite Scrooge would be the version with George C. Scott. Although non traditional I did also enjoy the very musical version with Albert Finney.

I too hope the new film coming later this year is of a more serious nature.

I'm a fan of the older versions - Seymour Hicks, Reginald Owen, Alastair Simm. I also have the Albert Finney version on DVD, but didn't watch it this year. I have to get that out and give it a look as I have not seen it to date.
