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:
Image
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

Franco wrote: Can you tell us a little more about the voice cast?

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.

Hey Who-fans, still no updates on if anyone else is going to be in this movie but rest assured I've got my finger on that fuzzy green pulse.

Also Kayke I just saw a trailer for Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation and that really hammers home your earlier point of how nice it would have been to see an off-season Grinch tale.

I was saddened when I went to the movie theater last night and did not even see a trailer for my Grinch and his movie. I thought perhaps there was no trailer because they were going for a more viral marketing approach, so I checked the Grinch movie's social media accounts and they have not posted since July.

I fear the person in charge of the Grinch's twitter is not doing enough to hype people up for this upcoming Grinch film, so I'm taking action. I'm going to get the public excited so they'll go see the Grinch movie in droves and the movie will get a sequel where the Grinch goes on a summer vacation.

My first plan is trying to get people who like the popular Marvel movie franchise interested in "the Grinchverse" films.

I was hoping the kids would love this "Mr Grinch, I don't feel so good" meme, but as of yet they're ambivalent.

I think next I will try talking about BGE (Big Grinch Energy) to appeal to the teens.

Sorry to flood the thread, I should have waited to collect my thoughts, but here’s another.

Perhaps there’s a way to link The Mask to The Grinch. They both feature green Jim Carreys and Twitter really loves things like “smokinnnn” and “somebody stop me”

I haven’t figured out a bridge yet but I’ll keep thinking
