With That’s My Boy proving unsuccessful yet again for Adam Sandler, the comedy actor has had another swing-and-a-miss feature at both the box office and critics. Though Sandler’s last few tries have been bad, his next few projects could actually put him back on top. His first comes in the family-friendly venture Hotel Transylvania, which we’ve seen showcased before in a couple teaser trailers and images. With Disney/Pixar’s Brave opening this weekend, most CGI films will be attached to hopefully get the right demographic excited for their upcoming adventures. Today, Sony Pictures has released the first full length trailer for Hotel Transylvania, showing off not only a majority of its voice cast, but what seems to be the core plot of the movie as well.
Welcome to the Hotel Transylvania, Dracula’s 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.
Starring, Adam Sandler, Selena Gomez, Andy Samberg, Kevin James, Fran Drescher, Cee-Lo Green, David Spade, Steve Buscemi, Molly Shannon and David Koechner, Hotel Transylvaniaopen on September 28th.
