The Addams Family

Four months after a teaser trailer was released for this year's THE ADDAMS FAMILY revival, a full trailer has arrived online to help boost our hype levels for the October release.

Directed by Conrad Vernon and Greg Tiernan from a screenplay by Matt Lieberman, Jodi Picoult, and Sue Costello, the new film brings cartoonist Charles Addams' characters to life through the use of computer generated animation.

This time around, the Addams Family's 

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 deadpan 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 film's voice cast includes Oscar Isaac as Gomez Addams, Charlize Theron as Morticia Addams, Chloë Grace Moretz as Wednesday Addams, Finn Wolfhard as Pugsley Addams, Nick Kroll as Uncle Fester, Bette Midler as Grandmama, Allison Janney as Margaux Needler, Elsie Fisher as Margaux’s daughter Parker Needler, Aimee Garcia as Denise, and Snoop Dogg as It.

THE ADDAMS FAMILY was produced by Vernon, Gail Berman, and Alex Schwartz. Andrew Mittman, Kevin Miserocchi, and Joe Earley served as executive producers, with Tabitha Shick overseeing the project for MGM.

It's always nice to see the Addams Family back in action. I don't know if I'll go out to see this movie in the theatre, but I'll be watching it at some point for sure.

THE ADDAMS FAMILY is set to reach theatres on October 11th.
