A Russian trailer for the animated family film Hotel Transylvania has gone online. Directed by Genndy Tartakovsky (Samurai Jack), the story centers on Dracula (voiced by Adam Sandler) trying to throw a party for his daughter Mavis’ 118th birthday, but his plans go haywire when a human (Andy Samberg) comes to the hotel and develops a crush on Mavis. The trailer is in Russian but the visuals are charming (particularly the use of silhouettes), and the movie could be a bit of lighthearted fun. However, I seriously doubt that Sandler will sound like his Russian voice actor counterpart.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer. The movie also features the voices of David Spade (Griffin the Invisible Man), Steve Buscemi (Wayne the Werewolf), Kevin James (Frankenstein), Molly Shannon (Wanda the Werewolf), and Cee Lo Green (Murray the Mummy). Hotel Transylvania opens in 3D on September 21st. [Update: We’ve been asked by the studio to remove the trailer. We’ll have an official trailer up for you once it’s released].
Here’s the official synopsis for Hotel Transylvania:
Welcome to the Hotel Transylvania, Dracula’s (Adam Sandler) lavish five-stake resort, where monsters and their families can live it up, free to be the monsters they are without humans to bother them. On one special weekend, Dracula has invited some of the world’s most famous monsters – Frankenstein and his bride, the Mummy, the Invisible Man, a family of werewolves, and more – to celebrate his daughter Mavis’s 118th birthday. For Drac, catering to all of these legendary monsters is no problem – but his world could come crashing down when one ordinary guy stumbles on the hotel and takes a shine to Mavis.
