The Grinch movie facts
Not even the grouchiest of moviegoers will be able to resist seeing The Grinch, in theaters November 9th. Cindy Lou Who and the rest of the “Whos” in Whoville are joined by new friends in the animated retelling of the Dr. Seuss classic — a tale about the true meaning of Christmas that’s sure to make your heart grow three sizes. Here’s what to know about this release before you go:
- The Grinch, 2018 style, is the third screen adaptation of Dr. Seuss’ children’s book, How the Grinch Stole Christmas!, originally published in 1957 (although the character first appeared in a poem Seuss penned for Redbook magazine in 1955).
- The movie features voices from megastars including Benedict Cumberbatch, Rashida Jones, Pharrell Williams, and Angela Lansbury.
- Acclaimed rapper and music producer Tyler, the Creator penned a new song for the film. (Take a listen and get a sneak peek at the latest movie trailer here.) He also collaborated with Danny Elfman — who composed the film score — on a new rendition of the most devious of holiday songs, “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch.”
- The Grinch will be available to view in RealD 3D, as well as in select IMAX theaters.
