The Charles Dickens novella A Christmas Carol is a timeless classic, adapted a great many times in the years since its publication in 1843.
For the upcoming holiday season a new adaptation of the tale is coming, this time from Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight. A teaser trailer for this latest take was released earlier this week, and it promises a darker version of the story than most of the previous adaptations we’ve seen.
More info on the new adaptation of A Christmas Carol and the trailer can be found below.
Focus Features has released an official trailer for Harriet, an upcoming feature which is based on the life of Harriet Tubman, who was responsible for freeing hundreds of slaves in the 1800s.

Fox Searchlight has released a new trailer for The Favourite, an upcoming historical drama about Queen Anne in the early 18th century which stars Emma Stone (La La Land, Birdman), Rachel Weisz (The Constant Gardener, The Fountain), and Olivia Colman (Hot Fuzz, The Crown).
If this is the first you’ve heard of the movie, the trailer might initially make it look like your typical awards season release—or “Oscar Bait,” as they are often labeled. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. Those types of films are often excellent. But as the trailer progresses it quickly becomes more than just a historical drama. It becomes funny. It becomes dark. All led by what appear to be three fittingly awards-caliber performances by Stone, Weisz, and Colman.
