If you know me then you know I LOVE (“obsess over” is probably a more accurate phrase) Halloween and paranormal themed animated movies. I’m already counting down the days until “ParaNorman” is released (August 17 to be exact and be sure to read my previous blog posts to find out all the details about the movie) and now I discover that I have even more to look forward to with the release of Sony Picture’s “Hotel Transylvania” (http://www.welcometohotelt.com) scheduled to hit theaters on September 28!
The plot: Dracula, the owner of Hotel Transylvania, a five-star resort for the world’s most interesting monsters (shout out to Bugs Bunny and the red-haired monster, Gossamer, brought to life on the big screen in 1946), invites some of his famous monster friends to celebrate the 118th birthday of his dark n’ lovely daughter, Mavis. Unexpectedly, the hotel is visited by Jonathan, an ordinary young human traveler, and Dracula must protect his coveted Mavis from falling in love with him… before it’s too late.
The 3D animation looks simply spook-tacular and will be a definite “must see” for everyone preparing themselves and their families for a hauntingly happy Halloween! With a cast of stars like Adam Sandler, Andy Samburg, Selena Gomez, Fran Drescher, Steve Buscemi, David Spade and Jon Lovitz it is destined to be as incredibly funny as it is visually stunning.
Be sure to check out the trailer below and watch this blog for an official countdown to the opening in late September.
