There aren’t enough variations of A Christmas Carol *sarcasm* so here’s another one dubbed The Man Who Invented Christmas, directed by Bharat Nalluri (Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day) exploring the creation of the widely celebrated holiday fable. Beauty and the Beast‘s Dan Stevens stars as revered author Charles Dickens (previously known for the beloved book Oliver Twist before penning arguably the greatest and most important Christmas story ever told), going through a writing career slump while continuing to deal with the falling out between
There’s no getting away from it – it’s getting closer and closer to Christmastime, and with it comes the flurry of Yuletide movies that will be lighting up your cinema screens over the next couple of months. One of them is The Man Who Invented Christmas, a film which tells the incredible story of how Charles Dickens came to write one of the most well-known stories in history, ‘A Christmas Carol’.
Dan Stevens, Christopher Plummer, Jonathan Pryce, Miriam Margolyes and Simon Callow, which tells the incredible story of how Charles Dickens came to write one of the most well-known stories in history.
In 1843, Dickens was a literary rock star, but struggling financially after the slow sales of his previous novel, Martin Chuzzlewit. Seized with the vision of a story that would fire the hearts of humanity, Dickens pitched his publishers, ‘A Christmas Carol’, but they passed. Desperate,

Shakespeare didn’t invent Orson Welles but he did define him; it can be said that if any one director took arms against the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, it was the man behind Citizen Kane, Touch of Evil and Chimes at Midnight. The 1952 production of Othello is exhibit A.
Filmed over a turbulent three year period in and around Morocco, Venice and Rome, Welles was bedeviled by an ever-changing cast and crew resulting in reshoots by five different cinematographers and assembled by four different editors. The sound recording was a joke.

Here's the first trailer (+ poster) for The Man Who Invented Christmas, which is set to be released on November 22nd.
Directed by Gareth Tunley.
Starring Tom Meeten, Alice Lowe, Geoffrey McGivern, Rufus Jones, Paul Kaye, Niamh Cusack, and Dan Renton Skinner.
A cop goes undercover as a patient in order to investigate a psychotherapist involved in a strange murder case.
With Ben Wheatley (A Field in England/Kill List) credited as executive producer you can guarantee that The Ghoul, the directorial debut feature from Gareth Tunley, isn’t going to be an easy or straightforward viewing experience. Opening on a police investigation of a double murder in a suburban house in London, the story centres on Chris (Tom Meeten – Sightseers), a burned-out homicide detective no longer on the force but brought in by his friend Jim (Dan Renton Skinner – High-Rise) to help out as Jim cannot figure out how two people were shot three times each and still managed to walk towards the front door of the house.

Hit shows and sitcoms are notoriously unsuccessful when transferred to the big screen, but sometimes they are just trying to give the fans what they want. Mindhorn cannot even lay claim to this as an excuse for its shortcomings. It bears many of the hallmarks many of the big comedies of the 2000s, but is not a spin off of any of them, making this a rather pointless exercise.
The premise is promising enough, even if it does sound reminiscent of some pictures that have come before it. A washed-up actor, by the name of Richard Thorncroft (Barratt) is assigned by his agency
