Get ready for November – The Grinch returns to the big screen!

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.

    Very Ginchalicious!

  2. In this age of streaming and DVDs, I don’t think kids get that same sense of anticipation for holiday movies. How The Grinch Stole Christmas was a favorite.

  3. MD Kennedy says:

    The Grinch has to be my absolutely favorite Christmas story.

  4. I’ve been meaning to watch Benedict Cumberbatch’s BBC series Sherlock.

  5. MD Kennedy says:

    I’m torn! I so love the original cartoon and the Jim Carey version, so I don’t know if I’ll be able to like this one!

    I admit…I still love animated films so much…the ones they make anymore are good for all ages! Benedict Cumberbatch is one of my total faves so looking forward to this!

  10. I just read that The Grinch will be Illuminations eighth animated feature. In addition to the Despicable Me/Minions movies, they also did The Secret Life of Pets. Unfortunately for the latter, all the funniest bits were in the trailer.

  11. Christina Almond says:

    This will be really cute and the casting was well done!

  12. I like that the music in the trailer is similar to the original.

  13. Christina Almond says:

  14. I have very fond memories of watching How The Grinch Stole Christmas as a child. I think this movie will be great!

  15. There are some years, upcoming Holiday movies don’t really excite me. Not this year!

    I look forward to this film! Benedict Cumberbatch is awesome…I crack up everytime I watch the “acting game” that he did with Jimmy Fallon. It’s on YouTube–so funny!

  20. LAMusing says:

    November is so far away !

  21. Christina Almond says:

    I think that Benedict Cumberbatch is a great actor–interesting to see him featured in an animated film. I’m looking forward to this!

  22. I’ve seen many comments online about the only Grinch for them is Jim Carrey…because they only remember him and not the original cartoon! lol

  23. Benedict Cumberbatch has exploded in popularity here and I look forward to seeing this movie.

  24. I think it’s wonderful that an acclaimed actor like Cumberbatch doesn’t feel that animated features is beneath him.

  25. Christina Almond says:

    I must take my granddaughters to see this.

  29. Shakeia Rieux says:

    I didn’t know they made a new The Grinch. It is definitely a must see movie.

  30. It’s amazing how many animation studios there are now. I didn’t realize Illumination did Despicable Me.

  31. I don’t get to the movies as often as I’d like but this movie will be a must-see.

  32. I’ve been checking the movie website daily, hoping to see the rest of the cast.

  33. I can’t wait to see who else is in the cast!

    I’m always ambivalent when I hear about a remake of a well-known and beloved classic. The trailer has dispelled my worriesl

  38. Benedict Cumberbatch has exploded on the US entertainment scene and I love that he’s expanded his work to animated features.

  39. Lynne B says:

    I’m very excited for this one. Remaking a classic can be a real risk.

  40. Lynne B says:

    I love the scenes in the trailer, especially the one in the grocery store.

  41. I had to watch the trailer again. And then call over my husband to watch it. It was terrific!

  42. I didn’t really care for the live-action version. Benedict Cumberbatch as the Grinch is definitely something to look forward to.

  49. Cynthia C says:

    I’ll be looking forward to the new Grinch movie. I’d love to take my nieces to see it in November.

  50. ellen beck says:

    I like hat this remake is animated. I am afraid I am one of those old Grinches myself that dislikes he one that was remade using actors, I preferred the older original version. This one looks to be much better. There is something about Suess that lend itself well to animation.

  51. I have a hard time with Cumberbach doing the grinch’s voice only because it doesn’t fit what I think the Grinch’s voice should sound like. LOL. But it looks funny and of course I’ll go see it!

  52. Linda Manns Linneman says:

    This sounds like such a fun movie. I will be looking forward to seeing this with my family. Thank you so much for sharing this. God Bless

  53. Melissa C says:

    My kids and I watched this trailer we laughed and cannot wait to see this rendition of The Grinch!

  54. Debbie P says:

    I didn’t know that someone had made another Grinch movie. Gonna take the little ones to see this for sure. And I love Benedict Cumberbatch!

  55. I’m still in love with Benedict Cumberbatch, I can’t help it.
