  • The Grinch - Official Trailer
    In Theatres November 9
    For their eighth fully animated feature, Illumination and Universal Pictures present The Grinch, based on Dr. Seuss’ beloved holiday classic. The Grinch tells the story of a cynical grump who goes on a mission to steal Christmas, only to have his heart changed by a young girl’s generous holiday spirit. Funny, heartwarming and visually stunning, it’s a universal story about the spirit of Christmas and the indomitable power of optimism.

    Academy Award® nominee Benedict Cumberbatch lends his voice to the infamous Grinch, who lives a solitary life inside a cave on Mt. Crumpet with only his loyal dog, Max, for company. With a cave rigged with inventions and contraptions for his day-to-day needs, the Grinch only sees his neighbors in Who-ville when he runs out of food.

    Each year at Christmas they disrupt his tranquil solitude with their increasingly bigger, brighter and louder celebrations. When the Whos declare they are going to make Christmas three times bigger this year, the Grinch realizes there is only one way for him to gain some peace and quiet: he must steal Christmas. To do so, he decides he will pose as Santa Claus on Christmas Eve, even going so far as to trap a lackadaisical misfit reindeer to pull his sleigh.

    Meanwhile, down in Who-ville, Cindy-Lou Who-a young girl overflowing with holiday cheer-plots with her gang of friends to trap Santa Claus as he makes his Christmas Eve rounds so that she can thank him for help for her overworked single mother. As Christmas approaches, however, her good-natured scheme threatens to collide with the Grinch’s more nefarious one. Will Cindy-Lou achieve her goal of finally meeting Santa Claus? Will the Grinch succeed in silencing the Whos’ holiday cheer once and for all?

    Find out, Christmas season 2018.

    People are saying this looks bad, but I think this has potential. I mean don’t get me wrong, the rest of Illumination’s work is terrible and cheap, but this film actually looks decent. The animation is more vibrant and colorful and the jokes weren’t cringe worthy at all.

    I really don't feel like this was intended to compite with Jims verion.
    I think they just want to extend 60s verson and i think it might flop.
    Also think Happy will be replaced with Xmas song when it's out. No point of using Xmas song in a trailer released in March

    the song "happy" in this trailer means this movie exists in a universe where the despicable me movies, and presumably the minion movie was released, and honestly that's enough to make anyone a grinch

  • Mathieu Leader
    Mathieu Leader 7 days ago

    r Here's an inventive spin on the Grinch's origins that I doubt this film would do. Here's what I would do I believe the Grinch is the son of the Krampus and was training him to punish the children for the next generation but the Grinch was too soft and friendly and as the Grinch could not follow in his fathers footsteps he was exiled to the snow capped mountain with his Dachshound Max that was given to him as a gift by Santa as a companion for him but the Grinch resents Santa the only man the Grinch ever respected because he failed to take him on as an apprentice because of the bad experiences he had the Grinch wants to steal Christmas for good because of his feelings of betrayal and anger thus acting as the setup to the Seuss classic. What do people think of my idea?

    i love how all the comments treat the Grinch like it belongs to Jim Carrey when he wasn't the original. The original was Dr Suess's book and after that came Boris Karloff. and i have nothing against either version. the only version i didn't like was the broadway version.

    You should of never released this film unless you had Jim Carrey as the voice. Now the film will be a complete failure; both financially and with happy viewers. We all know from previous films that changing the voice of an actor, or even changing person who represents the character is like worse case scenario! Its certain doom. I could reel off a list of doomed films that have made the same mistake...surely the movie industry can learn from their mistakes, especially if it involves millions of dollars of loss....I'm extremely disappointed.
