The Man Who Invented Christmas is released in UK cinemas from Friday 1st December. The film stars Dan Stevens as the literary genius, Charles Dickens, and tells the story behind the timeless Christmas classic, ‘A Christmas Carol’.

In 1843, Dickens was a literary rock star, but struggling financially after the slow sales of his previous novel, Martin Chuzzlewit. Seized with the vision of a story that would fire the hearts of humanity, Dickens pitched his publishers, ‘A Christmas Carol’, but they passed. Desperate, Dickens declared he would publish it himself. Slipping into the world of his novel, he spent the next six weeks laughing and arguing with his characters, acting out scenes like a madman on the streets of London for hours on end.

His family and friends worried he was going insane, but Dickens prevailed and finished just before Christmas, creating a masterpiece which gave birth to the Christmas we know and love today.

Directed by Bharat Nalluri (Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day, Spooks), THE MAN WHO INVENTED CHRISTMAS stars Dan Stevens (Downton Abbey, Beauty and the Beast), Christopher Plummer (The Sound of Music) as Ebenezer Scrooge, Jonathan Pryce (Game of Thrones) as John Dickens, Miriam Margolyes (Harry Potter and the Chambers of Secrets), and Simon Callow (Victoria and Abdul, Four Weddings and a Funeral).

There is also this new featurette about the film.
