When I heard they were doing another movie about How the Grinch Stole Christmas, I rolled my eyes hard. I don’t understand why we have to keep trying and failing at making a movie about this story. The old TV special is perfect. However, this latest trailer made me start to think that this movie has some potential. Benedict Cumberbatch is voicing the Grinch and he does a really good job of giving the character some life.
I almost feel like this is what the live-action movie wanted to be, but hopefully, this does a better job. The highlight from this trailer is seeing the Grinch planning to steal Christmas, complete with red string. I don’t think this will be one of the best movies of the year, but it might be fun to show the kids.
The Grinch will be in theaters on November 9, 2018.
