     We’re ringing in the Christmas season here at Lubbock’s Stars & Stripes Drive-In with the newest adaptation of a holiday classic! From Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment, it’s Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch!

     Set in a world that can only be described as… ‘Seussical,’ this soon-to-be holiday classic dives into the origin of a despicable creature known as The Grinch who, along with his trusty canine sidekick Max, sets out to ruin Christmas for the festive citizens of Whoville. This marks the third adaptation of the Dr. Seuss book. The most recent was Universal’s live-action How the Grinch Stole Christmas, starring Jim Carrey, which was itself a big screen remake of the Chuck Jones television special of the same name starring Boris Karloff. Illumination Entertainment is certainly no stranger to the works of Dr. Seuss. Their CEO Chris Melandri served as Executive Producer for Blue Sky Studios’ Horton Hears a Who! in 2008 before founding Illumination where he produced The Lorax in 2012.

     Stepping into the role of the famous green meanie this time is none other than Benedict Cumberbatch. In addition to having a name that’s fun to say, Cumberbatch is also known for a variety of roles that are fun to watch. Marvel’s master of the mystic arts Doctor Strange and, most notably, the BBC’s modernized version of the world’s greatest detective Sherlock Holmes to name just a few. Also starring in The Grinch are Rashida Jones from Parks and Recreation, Keenan Thompson from Saturday Night Live, and film and television legend Angela Lansbury.
