Seuss' whimsical story of the Yuletide-hating Grinch has been adapted a couple times since it was published; first in 1966 as an animated short narrated by Boris Karloff, then in 2000 as a live-action movie starring Jim Carrey. While the 1996 cartoon remains a winter holiday staple, the Carrey version tends to divide people over whether the <em>Ace Ventura</em> and <em>Dumb &amp; Dumber</em> star is a good match for the playful and innocent world of Seuss.</p><p>Like the Carry movie, Illumination's <em>The Grinch</em> changes and fleshes out Seuss' original story to fit a three-act movie format. In this version, The Grinch (<a href="https://screenrant.com/benedict-cumberbatch-mugging-london/">voiced by Benedict Cumberbatch</a>) is a grump who lives alone with his dog Max on Mt. Crumpet and only spends time in the nearby Who-ville when he needs to go pick up more food. Every year at Christmas the Whos interrupt the Grinch's solitary, but quiet, life by celebrating the holiday with as much gusto as they can manage, much to their curmudgeonly neighbor's displeasure. When the citizens of Who-ville decide to make Christmas three times bigger that usual this year, The Grinch decides he's had enough and sets out to stop them by "stealing" Christmas.</p> <strong>Click to continue reading <a href="https://screenrant.com/grinch-movie-2018-trailer-poster/">The Grinch Trailer #2 & Poster: Beware of Resting Grinch Face</a></strong><br /><br /> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="https://screenrant.com/grinch-movie-2018-trailer-poster/">The Grinch Trailer #2 & Poster: Beware of Resting Grinch Face</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" href="https://screenrant.com/">ScreenRant</a>
