The latest movie from Minions folk Illumination is a remake of Dr Seuss’ The Grinch. If you already knew that then stop grumbling and leave it to an expert…

Mind you, anybody who knows the story can probably understand where the green dude’s disdain for all things joyful and triumphant stems from.

This take has been modernised in many ways, but still has a distinct air of Seussian wonder about it. Plus, Benedict Cumberbatch gives voice to the titular star of the thing.

The Grinch is due to bring the bah humbugs to Christmas in Australian cinemas (O) come (all ye) November 29.
