The IMP Awards
Maybe it’s the fact that both ParaNorman and Frankenweenie look like so much fun that has us kind of down on Hotel Transylvania, but the whole affair just seems kind of flat. Well, that and Adam Sandler has gone from funny to annoying. In any event, dig on the new poster.
Directed by Genndy Tartakovsky (“Samurai Jack,” “Dexter’s Laboratory”), the flick stars Adam Sandler as Dracula; Selena Gomez as his daughter, Mavis; David Koechner as Quasimodo; David Spade as Griffin the invisible man; Kevin James as Frank, aka Frankenstein; Fran Drescher as his bride, Eunice; Steve Buscemi and Molly Shannon as married werewolves Wayne and Wanda; Cee Lo Green as Murray the mummy; and Andy Samberg as Jonathan, a regular guy.
Hotel Transylvania is slated for a September 21st release.
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 (Selena Gomez), 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.
