A Christmas Carol Premiere Date and Official Trailer

-

FX has announced that the A Christmas Carol premiere date has been set for December 19 at 7:30 p.m. ET/PT. The network has also released the new trailer, which you can watch below. A Christmas Carol will replay on December 22 at 7:30 p.m. ET/PT with an encore immediately following. It will also air on December 24 at 8 p.m. ET/PT and December 25 at 4 p.m. ET/PT.

A Christmas Carol features a star-studded ensemble cast including Guy Pearce (Mary Queen of Scots) playing Ebenezer Scrooge, Andy Serkis (Black Panther) as Ghost of Christmas Past, Stephen Graham (This Is England) as Jacob Marley, Charlotte Riley (Peaky Blinders) as Lottie, Joe Alwyn (The Favourite) as Bob Cratchit, Vinette Robinson (Doctor Who) as Mary Cratchit, Rutger Hauer (True Blood) as the Ghost of Christmas Future, Kayvan Novak (What We Do in the Shadows) as Ali Baba, and Lenny Rush (Old Boys) as Tim Cratchit.

Produced by FX Productions, Scott Free, and Hardy Son & Baker for BBC One and FX, A Christmas Carol is a unique and original take on the Charles Dickens’ iconic ghost story written by Steven Knight (Taboo, Peaky Blinders) and a haunting, hallucinatory, spine-tingling immersion into Scrooge’s dark night of the soul. It will be directed by Nick Murphy (The Awakening).

A Christmas Carol is the first in a series of adaptions of Dickens’ novels, commissioned by Piers Wenger, Controller of BBC Drama, and Charlotte Moore, Director of BBC Content, that will air in the next few years.
