MGM has just released a poster and first look trailer for its upcoming cinematic return of the mysterious, spooky, and uniquely odd Addams clan in The Addams Family 2. Hitting theaters October 1, 2021, the film stars Charlize Theron (Morticia), Oscar Isaac (Gomez), Chloë Grace Moretz (Wednesday), Nick Kroll (Fester), Javon ‘Wanna’ Walton (Pugsley), Bette Midler (Grandma), Snoop Dogg (It), and Bill Hader (Cryus).
“Road Trip” gets a whole new meaning in the newest addition to the Addams Family franchise. In the CG animated comedy sequel, Morticia and Gomez, distraught that their children are growing up, skipping family dinners, and totally consumed with “scream time,” decide that to reclaim their bond with the kids, a family vacation is in order. So, they pack Wednesday, Pugsley, Uncle Fester, and the crew into their haunted camper and hit the road for one last miserable family holiday. Their adventure across America takes them out of their element and into hilarious run-ins with their iconic cousin, It, as well as many new kooky characters. What could possibly go wrong?
The Addams Family 2 is directed by returning helmers Greg Tiernan and Conrad Vernon; produced by Vernon, Gail Berman, and Alison O’Brien; and executive produced by Kevin Miserocchi, Jonathan Glickman, Cassidy Lange, Aaron L. Gilbert, and Jason Cloth. Cinesite’s Laura Brousseau and Kevin Pavlovic are co-directing the film.
