Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who's the Grinch-iest of them all? This guy!
The first trailer for "The Grinch," an animated movie from the people behind the "Despicable Me" franchise, is here to ruin your Christmas good cheer. Benedict Cumberbatch voices the curmudgeonly green monster, who grumbles his way through the day.
First, he swats at his radio alarm clock because it's playing "Happy" by Pharrell. Later, at the town grocery store, he purposely breaks a jar of jam another customer wants.
Don't even get us started on what he does with a jar of pickles. He's the worst! And yet, somehow so charming.
Dr. Seuss' classic and beloved tale has been adapted into numerous movies and TV specials, the most recent of which was Ron Howard's live-action 2000 film starring Jim Carrey as the Grinch.
Cumberbatch doesn't get much play in the trailer, but his distinctive, deep voice seems perfect for the grouch.
"The Grinch" opens in theaters November 9, just in time for him to steal Christmas.
The Grinch and his loyal dog, Max, live a solitary existence inside a cave on Mount Crumpet. His main source of aggravation comes during Christmastime when his neighbors in Whoville celebrate the holidays with a bang. When the Whos decide to make Christmas bigger and brighter, the disgruntled Grinch realizes there is one way to gain peace and quiet. With help from Max, the green grump hatches a scheme to pose as Santa Claus, steal Christmas and silence the Whos' holiday cheer once and for all. Read More
