Benedict Cumberbatch Will Lend His Voice to The Grinch!!
Just in time for the holiday season, when every studio is trying to give us the glimpse of their upcoming family movies. Illumination Entertainment has also revealed the poster of their forthcoming ‘The Grinch’ film. The movie will be an animated and will retell the classic by Dr. Seauss story by the name of ‘How The Grinch Stole Christmas’.
The tale of Grinch has been brought to life quite a few times in different ways. The earlier adoption of the Dr. Seuss classic was 1966 animation special. However, the most notable creation was 2000 Ron Howard-directed live-action film, which found Jim Carrey making the Grinch a household name and set the box-office cash registers ringing.
The poster unveiled for upcoming Grinch movie revealed the Kid Grinch who looks too adorable to believe he will be evil. After seeing the glimpse of kid grinch, I am sure that he will be taking over the minions fever soon during the next year. The movie will be directed by Pete Candeland and The Secret Life of Pets co-director Yarrow Cheney. The most exciting update is that Benedict Cumberbatch will lend his voice to the Grinch and he will surely steal the show.
In recent times Illumination Entertainment has given us most astounding animated movies like Despicable Me 2 and 3 as well as Minions. So, with the classic Dr. Seuss story in their hands, I am hopeful that they will do justice to the film.
