Just in time for the holiday season, a new animated film from the makers of Despicable Me and Minions is coming to theaters.
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.
The Grinch features Academy Award nominee Benedict Cumberbatch (Doctor Strange) lends his voice to the title character. In this first trailer we get to see the Grinch interacting with the people of Whoville as they get ready for the holidays and he does what he can to disrupt their lives for his own amusement before returning to Mt. Crumpet and his solitary life with his dog Max being his only companion.
The Grinch opens in theaters November 9th.
