HOT TEASER: Sony’s “Hotel Transylvania 2”

HOT TEASER: Sony's "Hotel Transylvania 2"

The Drac pack is back for an all-new monster comedy adventure. Sony Pictures Animation’s Hotel Transylvania 2 is due on September 25th via Columbia Pictures. Robert Smigel writes, Genndy Tartkovsky directs, Adam Sandler stars… if its half as good as the original, it’ll be a hit. This teaser has me thinking it might even top the original. 

Official plot synopsis:  Everything seems to be changing for the better at Hotel Transylvania…  Dracula’s rigid monster-only hotel policy has finally relaxed, opening up its doors to human guests. But behind closed coffins, Drac is worried that his adorable half-human, half-vampire grandson, Dennis, isn’t showing signs of being a vampire. So while Mavis is busy visiting her human in-laws with Johnny – and in for a major cultural shock of her own – “Vampa” Drac enlists his friends Frank, Murray, Wayne and Griffin to put Dennis through a “monster-in-training” boot camp.  But little do they know that Drac’s grumpy and very old, old, old school dad Vlad is about to pay a family visit to the hotel.  And when Vlad finds out that his great-grandson is not a pure blood – and humans are now welcome at Hotel Transylvania – things are going to get batty!
