I'm super excited about this. The trailer reminds me of the Grinch Playstation game, which is one of my favorite pieces of Grinch related media right up there with 'Halloween is Grinch Night'. From the trailer alone this already has all the Grinch things I like: super smart Max, weird homemade gadgets, Grinch walking around doing mean stuff for the sake of being Grinchy. Also, look at this lil guy:

How does he get meaner? I neeeeeed to know.

Honestly the only thing I'm kind of iffy about is Cumberbatch as Grinch - I feel like I need to hear him talk more to see if I actually buy it or not. Also kind of wish it didn't take place around Christmas.
Like- Grinch -Christmas, I GET IT, but I'm also over it. Give me summer Grinch. Give me Autumn Grinch. I'll accept a spring Grinch.

Welcome back to Grinch-watch 2018, your one stop shop for The Grinch 2018 coverage.

Trailer Number 2 is OUT!

We're sad to report that this movie does seem to have a Christmas-centric plot... but good news: I'm sold on Bendie Cumbo's Grinch voice.
Can't wait to hear all about Grinch's early life in the orphanage - which is a departure from the previous Grinch-canon: that he was raised by a pair of lesbians who seemed nice but unprepared for the challenge of raising a child.

And that's the news.

This thread feels like when Tim and Eric did the bit about being super excited about Shrek the 3rd.

kayke this movie does not interest me at all but hearing you pontificate about Grinch-lore is extremely enticing, and I will be following this thread closely as a result

Pleased to be checking in and I look forward to updates, kayke. Can you tell us a little more about the voice cast? I could look it up but I'd much rather hear it from you.

My local theater inserts clips / commercials from this movie between trailers, absolutely zero laughs.

Q(who)ville & A

So far all sources state there is only one person in this movie and it is Benedict Cumberbatch.

As much as I would love if this was a movie where no character other than the Grinch is allowed to speak, the plot summary also includes Cindy Lou and Cindy Lou's single mother who I presume will have at least one(?) line each. I have heard rumors that Benedict is also doing the voice of Max the dog, but this is unconfirmed. I could see Freddy Highmore as Max.

As far as I can tell they're not not lesbians, right? But the movie doesn't get into if his two moms are an item or just roomies. Now we'll never know since they've been retconed.

Nah. The original Grinch only had Boris Karloff and everyone loved that.
