THE ADDAMS FAMILY HALLOWEEN Animated Film Gets a New Poster
MGM has released a new poster for their upcoming animated film adaptation of The Addams Family Halloween. The film stars Oscar Isaac as Gomez, Charlize Theron as Morticia, Chloe Grace Moretz as Wednesday, Finn Wolfhard as Pugsley, Elsie Fisher as Parker Needler, Nick Kroll as Uncle Fester, Bette Midler as the grandmother and Allison Janney as nemesis Margaux Needler.
We can also expect the first trailer for the film to drop on April 10th. The movie certainly has an impressive cast and I like the character designs because the designs come right from the cartoon comic strip.
Here’s the synopsis:
Based on the famous New Yorker creations of Charles Addams, this animated action-comedy will follow the Addams family whose lives begin to unravel when they face-off against a crafty reality-TV host while also preparing for their extended family to arrive for a major celebration, Addams-style.
Morticia, devilishly devoted to her husband and children, is the pale glue that holds her clan together. Gomez, debonair, sinister and passionately in love with his wife, is enthusiastic about whatever dreadful scheme he’s cooked up. Wednesday is a brilliant and sinister teenage girl with long braids and dead-pan wit. Pugsley, a menacing 10 year old on over-drive, enjoys getting into any kind of dreadful mischief he can find. Mad Uncle Fester is good natured, merry and likes to create mayhem any way he can. Grandmama is smitten with her grandchildren who enjoy her cookies shaped like bats and skulls. Margaux Needler, the reality TV makeover queen, is consumed with a desire for absolute suburban, pastel perfection.
The movie is being directed by Conrad Vernon (Shrek 2, Monsters vs. Aliens, Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted) and Greg Tiernan (Thomas & Friends, Day of the Diesels) from a script written by Matt Lieberman.
The movie will be released on October 18th, 2019.
