There have already been a number of teaser trailers for Genndy Tartakovsky’s Hotel Transylvania, and earlier this week a brand new full length trailer arrived which features tons more footage. The new trailer shows plenty more interaction between Dracula (Adam Sandler), his daughter Mavis (Selena Gomez), and we get to see exactly how the human staying at the hotel upsets the balance of all the monsters, ghouls and ghosts staying at the hotel.
I must say, I am reading a hell of a lot of negative things about this trailer, but I think it looks all-right. It is nothing special, and some of the jokes are incredibly old and forced, but it looks like it could be a lot of fun. I am also presuming this new trailer has been put together after the critical and box office failure in the US of Sandler’s new film, That’s My Boy. The film was a total flop at the box office and reviewers have absolutely panned it, needles to say Sony Pictures Animation may be worried that Sandler is not the big draw he used to be? Hopefully this new trailer should help drum up interest for the film, and you can view it at the bottom of this post.
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.”
