The Addams Family trailer: The weird but wonderful family return to our screens
81 years later and The Addams Family are still going strong. Since their cartoon first appeared in The New Yorker back in 1938 we've had the famous TV series, numerous cartoons, three feature films (none of which are worth remembering) and now a new animated version with a host of famous names providing the voices. It's been just over two decades since the last live-action film and even though this is a family-orientated release, MGM are no doubt hoping to tap into the horror resurgence of recent years. Take a look at the trailer for The Addams Family above to see what you think.
The Addams Family lives are turned upside down when they realize the town next door is suddenly full of uptight suburbanites led by an over-the-top TV host who is trying to build the perfect world- her way! – and who will stop at nothing to get rid of a freaky family like the Addams. If that’s not bad enough, Wednesday has to go to public school for the first time, and Pugsley has to prepare for a big performance that the extended Addams family from across the globe will be coming to judge. What could possibly go wrong?
Greg Tiernan and Conrad Vernon direct (they also gave us The Sausage Party - although Vernon has directed Shrek 2, Monsters vs. Aliens and Madagascar 3). Oscar Isaac voices Gomez Addams, with Chloë Grace Moretz as Wednesday, Charlize Theron as Morticia, Finn Wolfhard as Pugsley, Nick Kroll as Uncle Fester, Bette Midler as Grandmama and Allison Janney, Elsie Fisher and Aimee Garcia.
The Addams Family opens in UK cinemas just before Halloween on October 25th.
