Jim Carrey attended the launch of "Disney's A Christmas Carol at Los Angeles Union Station yesterday in Los Angeles, California. Jim and Robert Zemeckis arrived in front of the retrofitted Christmas Carol Amtrak train decorated in artwork from the film. After being serenaded by a quartet of carols singing "It's the most wonderful time of the year", the filmmaking duo proceeded to entertain the audience while fake snow fell from the unblemished blue sky.
