Teaser for HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA hits

This makes me long for the days of Samurai Jack.

Without taking much away from director Genndy Tartakovsky, the newly released teaser for his upcoming feature length animated film HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA is oddly unwatchable.

Here’s the skinny. The film stars Adam Sandler, Kevin James, David Spade, Selena Gomez, and Andy Samberg, and tells the story of a guy coming to the hotel, which is home to a cavalcade of iconic monsters. Hitting theaters on September 21, the film has a lot of expectations going in, particularly given who is behind the camera.

And honestly, the film looks, visually, fantastic. You definitely see his aesthetic at work here, but Tartakovsky doesn’t seem to be getting any help from a lackluster voice cast, and a script that doesn’t seem to be smarter than your average skeleton.  Overall, hope is still out there for the film, but I’m not holding my breath.

What do you think?
