The First Trailer For THE GRINCH Is Here!

The First Trailer For THE GRINCH Is Here!

The new trailer for Dr. Seuss' The Grinch, featuring Benedict Cumberbatch as the voice of the green grump, sees what the morning routine is like in the Grinch's home on Mt. Crumpet.

The property had been previously adapted in the 1966 half-hour animated TV special narrated by Boris Karloff and again in Ron Howard's 2000 live-action film that starred Jim Carrey.

Directed by Scott Mosier (producer, Free Birds, Clerks) and Yarrow Cheney (co-director, The Secret Life of Pets) and produced by Chris Meledandri and Janet Healy, this new adaptation of the 1957 Theodor Geisel story will snowball into theaters on November 9, 2018. Universal is going the animated route this time around, not surprising since Universal has found unbelievable success with other colorful films like "Despicable Me", "Minions", "Life of Pets", and "Kung Fu Panda". This is Illumination's second Dr. Seuss adaptation, as they released The Lorax back in 2012. The trailer itself doesn't offer up much but it does give us a good look at the character and the world of Whoville itself.

Illumination released the first trailer for The Grinch, which can be viewed above, after teasing its arrival yesterday with a poster featuring the Grinch and Max, the Grinch's canine friend.

"Today we will do mean things and we will do them in style", Cumberbatch's Grinch is overheard saying.

His faithful dog, Max, brings him some coffee from a very Seussian contraption not unlike Pee-wee Herman's breakfast machine, and then the two venture down into Who-ville to cause some trouble. Will the Grinch succeed in silencing the Whos' holiday cheer once and for all?

The trailer of Illumination's upcoming holiday animation film The Grinch is out and it's as grumpy as one would expect it to be. Will Cindy-Lou achieve her goal of finally meeting Santa Claus? No other cast besides Cumberbatch has been announced at this time.
