The Grinch new trailer: Christmas is about to be stolen

Hang onto your presents this winter

News about the voice cast for the new version of The Grinch is surprisingly hard to find, with only the name of Benedict Cumberbatch officially attached to it so far. It’s a little strange as the film comes out in four months time and there aren’t enough lines in the trailer for any other character to figure out who else is providing their voice. Anyway, check out the new trailer for The Grinch above.

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 scheming 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?

Benedict Cumberbatch voices The Grinch and Yarrow Cheney and Scott Mosier direct.

The Grinch arrives in UK cinemas on November 9th 2018.
