New ‘The Grinch’ Trailer

A new trailer for The Grinch has been released by the studio who cursed us with the Minions. I’m still not entirely sure we need a new animated adaptation of this classic Seuss work, but at least the tagline is funny.

I’m not entirely sold on Cumberbatch as the Grinch, which is a shame considering he’s a master at voices. Although, at least this film looks to be taking the character in a new direction, and isn’t just treading the same path as the 2000 film.

Synopsis: The Grinch (Benedict Cumberbatch) hatches a scheme with his trusted canine Max to ruin Christmas when the residents of Whoville plan their annual holiday celebration. Meanwhile, Cindy Lou Who plots to seek out Santa Clausto thank him for helping her single mother every Christmas, something which will interfere with the Grinch’s plans.

The Grinch hits theaters November 9, 2018.
