Illusion Entertainment’s animated re-imagining of Dr Seuss’ beloved holiday classic about a cynical grump that tries to steal Christmas, The Grinch, is heading to cinemas tomorrow (Friday).

Academy Award nominee Benedict Cumberbatch lends his voice to the infamous Grinch.

The Grinch lives a solitary life inside a cave on Mount Crumpet with only his loyal dog, Max, for company. With a cave rigged with inventions and contraptions for his day-to-day needs, the Grinch only sees his neighbours in Who-ville when he runs out of food.

However, each Christmas his tranquil life is interrupted by his neighbours increasingly bigger, brighter and louder celebrations.

When the Whos declare they are going to make Christmas three times bigger this year, the Grinch realises there is only one way for him to get some peace and quiet – he must steal Christmas.

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.
