The trailer for Genndy Tartakovsky’s animated family comedy, Hotel Transylvania, has finally arrived! A Russian version sneaked online last week but was quickly removed, and now finally an official English language trailer is here. You can check out the trailer below, and I must admit to actually quite liking it. I was a little hesitant to buying into this animated film, however I am glad I gave the trailer a chance.
The film looks very funny indeed, and would appear to be using the monsters angle to get the best laughs possible. Yeh, its safe to say I am looking forward to this one.
Hotel Transylvania, directed by Genndy Tartakovsky and written by David I. Stern and Dan Hageman, features the voices talents of Adam Sandler (Dracula), Selena Gomez (Mavis), Steve Buscemi (Wayne), Kevin James (Frank/Frankenstein), David Spade (Griffin- The Invisible Man), David Koechner (Quasimodo), Cee-Lo (Murray the Mummy), Fran Drescher (Eunice), and Molly Shannon (Wanda). The animated comedy will arrive in UK cinemas 12th October.
“Welcome to the Hotel Transylvania, Dracula’s (Adam Sandler) lavish five-stake resort, where monsters and their families can live it up, free from meddling from the human world. But here’s a little known fact about Dracula: he is not only the Prince of Darkness; he is also a dad. Over-protective of his teenage daughter, Mavis, Dracula fabricates tales of elaborate dangers to dissuade her adventurous spirit. As a haven for Mavis, he opens the Hotel Transylvania, where his daughter and some of the world’s most famous monsters – Frankenstein and his bride, the Mummy, the Invisible Man, a family of werewolves, and more – can kick back in safety and peace. For Drac, catering to all of these legendary monsters is no problem – but his world could come crashing down when one ordinary guy stumbles on the hotel and takes a shine to Mavis.”
