New Trailer For Addams Family 2019 Drops
August 10, 2019 6:00 AM ‐ Movies
A full trailer has dropped for the upcoming Addams Family movie, a new animated story based around a peculiar, ghoulish family.
Since the 90s the franchise has been somewhat dead, but this Halloween the weirdest family of all time are set to return to the big screen.
Bringing the quirky family to life in the new movie are the vocal talents of Oscar Isaac (Gomez), Charlize Theron (Morticia), Chloë Grace Moretz (Wednesday), Finn Wolfhard (Pugsley) and Bette Midler providing the voice of grandma Addams.
The initial reaction to the trailer has been mixed, many not liking the odd appearance of the characters, but ironically this film actually more closely resembles the family's creator's original cartoons style than any other incarnation of the characters to date.
The family first appeared as a cartoon strip in the American magazine The New Yorker in 1938, the creation of Charles Addams, a cartoonist known for his darkly humorous and macabre characters.
Since then the family have starred in several of their own television series, including the original black and white 60s show. They've also been the subject of three feature films. Yes... three. You're probably forgetting the 1998 straight-to-video movie 'Addams Family Reunion'.
Throughout the years, they've also been immortalised as animated characters, with cartoon series airing in the 70s and the early-90s. This year for the first time, we'll get to see the Addams in away we've never seen them before, in a computer animated feature film.
The trailer plays homage to the 2017 horror movie, 'It', which features Finn Wolfhard who plays Pugsley. In the trailer Wednesday is seen holding a floating red balloon on a string. Morticia remarks that there's usually a murderous clown attached to the end of red balloons. We're sure our favourite little brunette outcast had no trouble dispatching of Pennywise.
As yet, not much is known about the plot of the movie, which is directed by Greg Tiernan and Conrad Vernon, but we can assume it'll revolve around the family's attempts to adapt to life around "normal" people as Wednesday heads off to school and the family get new neighbours.
A teaser trailer for the film, which is Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer's third computer-animated movie, was released earlier this year, but didn't give much away. It served as a good introduction to the movie's main characters, including the odd-looking Uncle Fester, played by comedian Nick Kroll.
The movie will be released worldwide for Halloween 2019, with a UK release date set for 25th October and 11th October in the US.
