When he is not opening R-rated box office bombs like That’s My Son, Adam Sandler voices Dracula in the upcoming Sony Pictures animated flick Hotel Transylvania. This new trailer gives us a better look at the father-daughter relationship… at least until the human comes.
So Dracula has a daughter called Mavis, voiced by Selena Gomez, and in order to protect her he builds this castle exclusively for monsters, called Hotel Transylvania. Everything is all fine up until a human (Andy Samberg) manages to somehow find the hotel. The human, called Jonathan, falls in love with Mavis and that’s probably when all hell breaks loose.
Here’s an interesting bit of information, That’s My Son, the box office bomb I mentioned in the intro, also stared Adam Sandler and Andy Samberg and weird enough, it was about a father-son relationship. Hotel Transylvania is a father-daughter business, something Sandler should have more experience with (since he has after all two daughters).
Hotel Transylvania was directed by Genndy Tartakovsky (Dexter’s Laboratory) and features the voices of Adam Sandler, Selena Gomez, Andy Samberg, Steve Buscemi, Kevin James and David Spade among others.
In the words of Leonardo DiCaprio from Djandgo Unchained, “you had my curiosity, but now you have my attention”, Hotel Transylvania opens September 21st in North America and October 12th in the UK.
