Beware of resting Grinch face!
The second trailer for Illumination and Universal Pictures’ animated film The Grinch was released on Thursday. In the new trailer, the titular Grinch is grumpier than ever!
Based on the beloved Dr. Seuss classic, the film tells the story of the grumpy Grinch who is making it his life’s mission to cancel Christmas. As he conspires to sabotage the happiest of holidays for the Whos down in Who-ville, one Who in particular stands in his way.
Check out the adorable new trailer, resting Grinch face poster and official film synopsis below:
The official synopsis for The Grinch reads as follows:
[row]”Each year at Christmas they disrupt his tranquil solitude with their increasingly bigger, brighter and louder celebrations. When the Whos declare they are going to make Christmas three times bigger this year, the Grinch realizes there is only one way for him to gain some peace and quiet: he must steal Christmas. To do so, he decides he will pose as Santa Claus on Christmas Eve, even going so far as to trap a lackadaisical misfit reindeer to pull his sleigh.
Meanwhile, down in Who-ville, Cindy-Lou Who—a young girl overflowing with holiday cheer—plots with her gang of friends to trap Santa Claus as he makes his Christmas Eve rounds so that she can thank him for help for her overworked single mother. As Christmas approaches, however, her good-natured scheme threatens to collide with the Grinch’s more nefarious one. Will Cindy-Lou achieve her goal of finally meeting Santa Claus? Will the Grinch succeed in silencing the Whos’ holiday cheer once and for all?”[/row]
