When the first trailer for The Man Who Invented Christmas hit, this critic admittedly cried, “Humbug!” But the latest clip from this playful Charles Dickens’ biopic features Christopher Plummer playing the scowling Ebeneezer Scrooge. And as he grumbles about Christmas and the poor, something in my cold, dead heart flutters with excitement.
Could this movie actually be not hokey, but good?!
And I’m here for Dan Stevens, bad wig or no.
The Man Who Invented Christmas opens November 22nd.
