New ‘Hotel Transylvania’ Trailer Reminds Us That Adam Sandler is Funny Sometimes

Hotel Transylvania
Sony Animation

Adam Sandler and Andy Samberg reunite for animated comedy ‘Hotel Transylvania,’ but can it make up for the offensively awful ‘That’s My Boy‘? We’re starting to think so.

HeyUGuys posted the new official international trailer for ‘Hotel Transylvania,’ and it’s actually kind of funny. Yes, it’s another Happy Madison/Sony venture, but it’s also directed by Genndy Tartakovsky, the brilliant mind that brought us delightful and hilarious cartoons such as  ’Powerpuff Girls,’ ‘Dexter’s Laboratory,’ and ‘Samurai Jack.’

The film takes place at the titular hotel, where Dracula (Sandler) and his daughter (Selena Gomez) get a very unexpected surprise when the first human guest — ever — shows up. Samberg voices the human in the film, which also co-stars the vocal talents of Steve Buscemi, Kevin James, David Spade, and Cee Lo Green (what are the odds that he does a song for the film?).

This trailer features some fun gags, like the opening bit where Dracula sings to his daughter sweetly before showing his monstrous side, and Samberg’s natural dude-like inflection instantly makes everything his character says that much more hilarious.

It’s a kid’s movie, which already means it has to be at least a little better than ‘That’s My Boy.’ We’ll find out soon enough when ‘Hotel Transylvania’ hits theaters September 21.
