An old holiday classic is getting a fresh coat of paint with The Grinch. This animated reboot comes from Illumination, the animation studio responsible for hits like Minions, Sing, and previous Dr. Seuss adaptation, The Lorax.

The original voice of Christmas’s most notorious ne’er-do-well was horror legend Boris Karloff, best known for his roles in films like 1931’s Frankenstein and 1932’s The Mummy. In the 2000 live-action version of How The Grinch Stole Christmas, the title character was played by Jim Carrey under layers of make-up, for which the film won an Academy Award.

This time around, the title character of The Grinch is voiced by star of stage and screen, Benedict Cumberbatch. Best known for his roles as Sherlock Holmes in the acclaimed BBC series and as Doctor Strange in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Cumberbatch has a well-deserved reputation as one of the most talented, charming, and utterly likable thespians working in the movie business.

The actor spent some time answering our questions about The Grinch, shared some of his favorite childhood Christmas classics, and expressed his enthusiasm for Netflix’s upcoming release of Andy Serkis’ Jungle Book adaptation, Mowgli.

Before we begin, don’t worry, I’m not even gonna ask about Doctor Strange and The Avengers, since I know I’m not getting anything out of you!

Yeah. That would waste all of our time! (laughs)

You have an incredible voice. You’ve done a lot of voice acting, from narration and animation to motion capture. So what drew you to this role in The Grinch?

I think the book has certainly been part of my childhood, but it’s not as popular as it is in the States. I knew the book, but I didn’t know the Boris Karloff or Jim Carrey incarnations, but I was aware of the Carrey one, but I think I was too old to watch it. I mean, I was in my 20s, it was about twenty years ago. Anyway, the point being, I was very flattered. It’s Illumination doing an animated feature, and what’s not to love about The Grinch? He’s wonderful, iconic, and green. It was a joy to be a grinchy Grinch. It was terrific. They wanted me to use my natural accent for the voice, which was very nice, and they said they loved the way I speak, but I thought, he’s gotta be American, especially in the context that the rest of the cast is mostly American. It took four of five sessions to get the voice right. The script was so good, and Illumination’s back catalogue was so good. The animation I got when I came in was very limited, but it was already very exciting. It was just excellent.

Benedict Cumberbatch has signed to narrate the feature documentary There’s A Hole In My Bucket, about Royd Tolkien, the great-grandson of J.R.R. Tolkien.

The film follows Tolkien’s journey to complete a bucket list of 50 challenges created for him by his brother Mike who suffered from motor nerurone disease, known as ALS in the US, in 2015.

Unknown to Royd Tolkien, he had secretly compiled a bucket list to be delivered to his brother after his death.

The documentary follows Tolkien as he attempts to complete those 50 challenges in New Zealand – it is being directed by Robert Cavanah.

UK sales outfit Evolutionary Films will be market screening the title at the upcoming American Film Market in Los Angeles.

The film is being produced by James Fisher at Sky Limit Films, with Royd Tolkien.

“Benedict was previously aware of my brother, Mike, and his battle with this terrible disease; In 2014 I organised a charity screening of The Hobbit on behalf of my brother, and Benedict joined fellow cast members who kindly recorded greetings for that event,” explained Royd Tolkien.

Cumberbatch is a patron for the Motor Neurone Disease Association UK. [Source]

The Weinstein Co. buyer Lantern Entertainment and 13 Films will distribute the Harvey Weinstein-tainted Thomas Edison biopic, as well as the unreleased horror film ‘Polaroid.’

13 Films has partnered with Lantern Entertainment, an affiliate of The Weinstein Co. buyer Lantern Capital Partners, to handle foreign distribution of the Harvey Weinstein-tainted historical epic The Current War.

The film, which focuses on the rivalry between electricity innovators Thomas Edison (played by Benedict Cumberbatch) and George Westinghouse (Michael Shannon), was a casualty in last year’s fallout of the revelations about the disgraced movie mogul, who acted as producer on the project.

Lantern Capital Partners subsequently paid $289 million for what remained of TWC.

The partners will also handle the foreign distribution of the unreleased horror pic Polaroid after both titles were acquired through Lantern’s acquisition of assets of TWC. Current War also stars Nicholas Hoult, Tom Holland, Katherine Waterston and Tuppence Middleton.

Initially due for release last November, Current War has gone without a domestic release date. The film, directed by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon, first bowed at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival.

Polaroid, based on the award-winning short by Lars Klevberg and from the producers of the The Ring and The Grudge, centers on high school loner Bird Fitcher, who he has no idea what dark secrets are tied to the vintage Polaroid camera she stumbles upon.

13 Films is an international distribution and finance company founded by Tannaz Anisi and based in Los Angeles. Lantern is an affiliate of Lantern Capital Partners, a indie studio with a library of over 270 films, including The King’s Speech and The Artist. [Source]

Don’t have any plans for the Halloween holiday? Well, now you do. If you’re a super fan of Benedict Cumberbatch, you’re not going to want to miss what Fathom Events has set up for October. The Doctor Strange and Sherlock star is taking on the role of Frankenstein’s Monster, and it’s something you’re definitely not going to want to miss.

Frankenstein comes alive in U.S. Cinemas, in time for Halloween, this October for a two-night event, In celebration of the 200th Anniversary of Mary Shelley’s classic novel. And here, you never thought you’d get to see Benedict Cumberbatch suffering in pain as horror’s most notorious creature, built from human body parts and unleashed on an unexacting world.

Fathom Events, National Theatre Live and BY Experience bring Frankenstein, first captured live in 2011 from the National Theatre stage in London, back to cinemas for a two-night event, October 22 and 29 only. This thrilling, sold-out production became an international sensation, experienced to date by more than half a million people in cinemas around the world.

Frankenstein is a live stage production captured in high-definition, and directed by Academy Award-winner Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, Slumdog Millionaire). Frankenstein features Benedict Cumberbatch (Hamlet, BBC’s Sherlock) and Jonny Lee Miller (Elementary, Trainspotting) alternating between the roles of Victor Frankenstein and his Creation. Yes, it will almost, kind of be like dueling Sherlocks, but not really.

Scientific responsibility, parental neglect, cognitive development and the nature of good and evil are embedded within this thrilling and deeply disturbing classic tale. Fathom Events, National Theatre Live and BY Experience have partnered in the past to bring Hamlet, Julius Caesar, and Macbeth and more to movie theaters across the nation.
