“Wednesday, don’t forget to kick your father goodnight”
The first trailer for the new animated Addams Family movie has arrived and it looks fun – grimly amusing with good characterisation, if not rip-roaringly hilarious (from the 90 seconds we’ve seen so far anyway).
And I did love the illustrations of the many different kinds of family at the start.
The voice cast is top notch: Charlize Theron as Morticia, Oscar Isaac as Gomez, Chloe Grace Moretz as Wednesday and Finn Wolfhard (an Addams Family name if ever I heard one) as Pugsley.
Though what I really want is a live action remake with Winona Ryder and Keanu Reeves as Morticia and Gomez…
The animated comedy is released on 11 October in the US and 25 October in the UK. It’s directed by Greg Tiernan and Conrad Vernon.
