Benedict Cumberbatch is The Grinch this time around for Illumination's (Despicable Me, Minions) take on the iconic story. While we've seen some breif footage duirng the Olympics last month, today gives us a whole trailer to check out:
First of all, the animation is really good and the Grinch looks better than he ever has before. Something feels off, howvever, and I think it has to do with how Normal everything looks. This is Seuss, things are supposed to be wonky, goofy, and all kinds of wacky. Here, though, the Whos seem like any other cartoon humans in just about any other movie. Who-ville looks average and nondescript.
Perhaps I'm being too harsh on a teaser trailer for a film that won't hit until Christmas time,
