Feature Film

Coming Soon – The Mob’s movie team and Director Bharat Nalluri have been preparing for Christmas!

The Man Who Invented Christmas will be in cinemas in the UK from 1st December but you don’t have to wait until then to get a sneak preview. Over 3 million people have already watched the trailer on Youtube, take a look here!

The film follows the magical journey that led Charles Dickens to the creation of Ebenezer Scrooge, Tiny Tim and the Ghost of Christmas Past. Directed by Bharat Nalluri (Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day, Spooks), the film follows Dickens through the franticly short two months he took to create A Christmas Carol, with unforgettable characters and a timeless tale, forever changing the way we celebrate Christmas.

Dan Stevens (Beauty & The Best, Downton Abbey and Legion) plays Charles Dickens, with a fantastic supporting cast including Academy Award winning screen legend Christopher Plummer as the cantankerous Scrooge, Jonathan Pryce (Wolf Hall, Game of Thrones, Evita) as Dickens father, plus Justin Edwards, Morfydd Clark, Donald Sumpter, Miles Jupp, Simon Callow, Miriam Margolyes, Ian McNiece, and Bill Paterson.

The project was developed by The Mob and our partners at Mystic Point Productions and The Mazur Kaplan Company and we further partnered with Parallel Films, Rhombus Media and Nelly Films at the production stage.

The film will be on general release in the UK from 1 December but also from 22nd November in the USA, 24th November in Canada and 30th November in Australia.


Bharat Nalluri is one of the UK's most respected performance directors. Bharat’s many credits include original Director of the BAFTA & Emmy-winning ‘Life On Mars’, ‘Torchwood‘, ‘Outcasts’ and ‘Hustle’.
