Ratings: The Grinch Steals (Some of) Christmas for NBC

  • The Wrap
All the Whos down in Whoville like Christmas a lot, but the majority of Monday night viewers tuned into the NBA’s Houston Rockets vs. Oklahoma City Thunder game on ABC. While basketball brought ABC to the top of the Nice List (and Nielsen ratings) for the holiday evening, showings of the 1966 animated classic “Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas” and the 2000 live-action flick “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” brought NBC into a comfortable second place. ABC was first in ratings with a 1.8 rating/7 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and in total viewers with an average of...

‘Despicable Me 3’ Top Disc Seller for Second Week

Despite the arrival of two popular new releases, Universal Pictures again topped both national home video sales charts the week ended Dec. 16 with “Despicable Me 3,” the fourth installment in the computer-animated comedy-adventure series produced by Illumination Entertainment.

The film, with a domestic theatrical gross of nearly $265 million, follows the 2015 offshoot “Minions” and is a sequel to 2013’s “Despicable Me 2.” It’s one of three 2017 films to earn more than $1 billion at the box office, worldwide.

Two new releases, 20th Century Fox’s “Kingsmen: The Golden Circle” and HBO’s “Game of Thrones: The Complete Seventh Season,” bowed at No. 2 and No. 3, respectively, on Npd VideoScan’s combined DVD/Blu-ray Disc sales chart as well as the dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart.

“Kingsmen” sold 80.6% as many units its first week in stores as “Despicable Me 3” did in its second week of release, Npd research shows, with “Game of Thrones” trailing at 58.2%.

Universal Pictures Music Chief Mike Knobloch Talks ‘Pitch Perfect 3’ and How the Taylor Swift-Zayn Duet Happened

Universal Pictures Music Chief Mike Knobloch Talks ‘Pitch Perfect 3’ and How the Taylor Swift-Zayn Duet Happened
No pressure, but “Pitch Perfect 3,” which opens in 3,400 North American theaters and 15 international territories this weekend, only has to follow the world’s top-earning musical comedy, a status the franchise’s 2015 second installment reached when its $288 million gross crushed the $131.3 million earning by previous record-holder “School of Rock.”

Coming off a Grammy nomination for best song written for visual media with “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever,” the Taylor Swift-Zayn duet that helped propel “Fifty Shades Darker” into a $374 million global release, Universal Pictures film music and publishing president Mike Knobloch confirmed rumors about a Liam Payne-Rita Ora collaboration: “‘For You (Fifty Shades Freed)’ will make a big noise at the top of January on the single for the Feb. 9 film release.”

Knobloch, who joined Universal in 2010 after 13 years as executive VP of music at 20th Century Fox, has the inside track on what it takes to create a motion picture-propelled pop hit. Transitioning

Why Die Hard is, in fact, a Christmas movie

Ricky Church on why Die Hard is a Christmas movie…

The Christmas season is well upon us and there is no shortage of movies to get you in that jolly old mood. From classics such as How The Grinch Stole Christmas or A Christmas Carol to modern films like Jingle All The Way or Home Alone, there is plenty of entertainment to choose from for the holiday season.

However, there is one movie that is always on my list to watch and should be on everybody else’s essential Christmas viewing: Die Hard.

Die Hard, starring Bruce Willis and Alan Rickman, is one of the greatest action films ever. New York cop John McClane travels across the country to spend time with his children and estranged wife, but his wife’s office Christmas party is ruined when Hans Gruber and a group of criminals take them hostage.

The Grinch Poster Remembers the Villain's Innocent Early Years

The first poster for 2018's The Grinch is here. We've known about this movie for a long time, but details on this holiday classic retake have been pretty scarce. However, with this year's holiday season in full swing, the folks at Illumination Entertainment and Universal have finally given us a little something to chew on in the form of the first poster for The Grinch. Surprisingly, he's looking pretty tame, but they warn that it won't last.

"He gets meaner. See #TheGrinch in theaters Holiday 2018."

The Grinch tells the story of a green, grumpy figure who goes on a mission to steal Christmas, only to have his heart changed by a young girl's generous holiday spirit. This heartwarming tale about the spirit of Christmas is beloved as a Dr. Seuss story, but really became a holiday staple when it was presented in animated form in How the Grinch Stole Christmas.

Illumination Entertainment’s The Grinch gets a new poster

Just in time for the holiday season, Illumination Entertainment has released a new poster for The Grinch, next year’s animated retelling of Dr. Seuss’ classic tale How the Grinch Stole Christmas, which features a young version of the titular character, voiced in the movie by Benedict Cumberbatch.

The Grinch will be the second Dr. Seuss tale adapted for the big screen by Illumination after 2012’s The Lorax. Pete Candeland is making his feature directorial debut on the movie alongside Yarrow Cheney (The Secret Life of Pets) and the film is set for release on November 9th 2018.

First Poster For New Grinch Movie Starring Benedict Cumberbatch Debuts

Early last year, it was announced that Illumination – the folks behind Despicable Me and The Secret Lives of Pets – were working on a new animated adaptation of Dr. Seuss’ classic How The Grinch Stole Christmas. The announcement came with the reveal of its lead actor, too, telling us that Benedict Cumberbatch will be voicing the eponymous green meanie.

Apart from our first glimpse at Cumberbatch’s iteration of the character back in May, things have gone a bit quiet on The Grinch front since then. Now, though, just in time for the holidays, Illumination has rolled out the first poster for the pic, which arrives next year – and it takes the Grinch in an unexpected direction.

Captioned “He gets meaner,” the poster doesn’t show us the older, grouchier Grinch but rather, the sweet and innocent younger version. With his scarf and big eyes, the Grinch looks downright adorable here

What Do You Think Makes a Movie a Christmas Movie?

Not a Christmas movie

There are a lot of opinions out there about what counts as a Christmas movie. I recently shared three films that help me get into the holiday spirit. Everyone is different, but here is the key factor in defining a movie as a Christmas movie for me: Christmas must be an essential part of the story.

The movie can’t just have a Christmas scene in it. Christmas must play an integral part of the story. For instance, there is a scene in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone that features Christmas, but that does not make it a Christmas movie. Christmas plays a very minimal role in the story. However, in How the Grinch Stole Christmas (both versions), the story revolves around Christmas. That whole story happens because of Christmas.

Another example is Toy Story, which ends with Andy celebrating Christmas with his family and

Check Out This Amazing Homemade Millennium Falcon Rooftop Ornament

I think we can all agree that some people go a little nuts with their house and roof decorations around the holiday season. Just watch that clip from How the Grinch Stole Christmas with Jim Carrey where they have the Gatling gun for lights. Enter Colby Powell. Powell and his family built a Millennium Falcon replica for their roof in anticipation of Star Wars: The Last Jedi. This thing is so massive, they needed to use a crane to get it on the roof! You can check out the video below to watch him and his family build the decoration get it up on the roof. Also, if you’re curious, yes this is the same guy who built a Death Star for his home back in 2015.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi comes to theaters December 15, 2017.

Jim and Andy Spoof “Jim and The Grinch:” Beyond Whoville

If Jim and Andy are really spoofing “Jim and the Grinch: Beyond Whoville” it’s got tobe one of the calmest spoofs ever. It’s more interesting learning what it was really like for Jim Carrey to become the Grinch than anything else. To hear him admit that he got so into his part isn’t too surprising since he’s done it before, but to hear that who he was took a back seat to who he had to become was just a little bit disturbing. A lot of artists have this quality. That’s it, plain and simple. Artists have this ability to

Remember When Taylor Momsen Played Cindy Lou Who in How the Grinch Stole Christmas?

Remember When Taylor Momsen Played Cindy Lou Who in How the Grinch Stole Christmas?
Taylor Momsen wasn't always decked out in all black... We've come to know the 24-year-old as the lead singer in The Pretty Reckless, wearing dark clothing and even darker makeup as she rocks out with her band in front of crowds of people. Before that, we knew her as Brooklyn-born Jenny Humphrey in Gossip Girl, always looking to dethrone the likes of Blair Waldorf from the Met steps while simultaneously figuring out how to take her fashion career to another level. But do you remember how we first met Ms. Momsen?! She played cute, little Cindy Lou Who in How the Grinch Stole Christmas! Yes, 17 years ago—before the eye liner and nude photo shoots—Momsen was cast as the...

Critics Reveal Their Favorite Holiday TV Traditions — IndieWire Survey

Critics Reveal Their Favorite Holiday TV Traditions — IndieWire Survey
Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best show currently on TV?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: What are your winter holiday season viewing habits (that are not for work)? Do you have traditional go-to shows or movies? Are you looking forward to anything in particular?

Eric Deggans (@deggans), NPR

As I have written in the past, I’m not the kind of critic who loves holiday specials. Too often, they’re too hokey, too commercial, too weird (yes, Bill Murray, I still don’t get “A Very Murray Christmas”) or, in the case of countless Hallmark Channel movies, way too white. But I do have a few holiday media traditions, starting with my Spotify Holiday Tunes playlist, which gets fired up as
