The Grinch Get a Little Meaner in New Poster

Today Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment have revealed a poster for their upcoming Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch. The film is, most of all, a remake of the original film that we have come to know and love.

In the poster, we get a look at the main character before he became the mean old grump. You know, the one that wanted to destroy Christmas for everyone in Who-ville.  I think the younger version is extremely adorable. It seems like this version is not the live-action version we saw with Jim Carrey.

The general synopsis of the film is below:

The Grinch tells the story of a cynical grump who goes on a mission to steal Christmas, only to have his heart changed by a young girl’s generous holiday spirit. Funny, heartwarming, and visually stunning, it’s a universal story about the spirit of Christmas and the indomitable power of optimism. Academy Award nominee Benedict Cumberbatch lends his voice to the infamous Grinch, who lives a solitary life inside a cave on Mt. Crumpet with only his loyal dog, Max, for company. With a cave rigged with inventions and contraptions for his day-to-day needs, the Grinch only sees his neighbors in Who-ville when he runs out of food.

The film is being directed by Pete Candeland and Yarrow Cheney, and co-directed by Matthew O’Callaghan. The original release date was originally set for this year, but has been pushed back to November 9, 2018.
