LatinoReview (they also have the poster) just debuted this first still from Robert Zemeckis’ A Christmas Carol, starring Jim Carrey, or at least, the digitized version of Jim Carrey.  For all the talk of how motion-capture has come a long way since the zombie-eye days of Polar Express, it still looks creepy, and not in a good way.  I just don’t understand paying Jim Carrey $10 million dollars to act and then having a team of Indians in a basement somewhere recreate his facial expressions.  But then what do I know, I’m just a guy who lights up the room with his smile.
