The beloved Charles Dickens novel A Christmas Carol has seen many film adaptations, but that didn’t dissuade director Robert Zemeckis from making his own using motion-capture animation. Like Tom Hanks in The Polar Express, Jim Carrey assumes multiple acting roles as miserly Ebenezer Scrooge and the three ghosts of Christmas. Reportedly, Carrey also performed most of his own stunts, such as sliding down a virtual roof. Gary Oldman plays three significant parts while Bob Hoskins and Robin Wright Penn tackle two characters apiece.
