Out-of-Context Posters #15: How the Grinch Stole Christmas (2000)

Movie posters often use their most iconic scene as their focus. Think Tom Cruise hanging off a plane for the Mission Impossible 5 poster. But what would happen if instead those posters would feature something completely out-of-context?

I’ve always been shocked at how many people love 2000’s live-action re-imagining of Dr. Seuss’s classic How the Grinch Stole Christmas. To this day, this movie is still the only film that I’ve ever walked out of the theater on. Having caught the rest at various Christmas parties over the years, I can confidently say that I made the right decision. If you want to watch a film that completely snubs the joy of Dr. Seuss and replaces it with non-consensual dog anus molestation (yes, that actually happens), this is the right film for you! Meanwhile, I’ll be watching the charming cartoon version.


I am a writer, video producer, and avid film buff. I've also been pegged by a few as the second coming of the Messiah although I don't believe it. Just to be on the safe side, however, I am willing to accept your prayers and any monetary contributions you are willing to part with. Especially automobiles. Yes, automobiles will suffice.
