One of the perks of our Fall Movie Preview here at MTV News is that we get our hands on exclusive movie pics that we get to share with you, and this time it’s from “Hotel Transylvania”! The photo shows Murray the Mummy (voiced by none other than the incomparable Cee-Lo Green), rocking out appropriately so, with a guitar in his hands, glowing green eyes burning bright with delight, and a joyful grin on his mouth. It sort makes us wonder what kind of supernatural hijinks they get into at the Trans.
“Hotel Transylvania,” produced by Adam Sandler and directed by Genndy Tartakovsky (“Samurai Jack,” “Dexter’s Laboratory,” “The Powerpuff Girls”) tells the story of Dracula, voiced by Adam Sandler, as the owner and operator of a no-tell, ho-tel that caters to an exclusive clientele. Basically, anything that you ever thought was under your bed or hiding in your closet gets the five-star treatment at Drac’s place.
Besides being an enterprising businessman, he’s also a devoted and overly protective father to a spirited 118 year old Mavis (Selena Gomez), who starting to feel old fast at her father’s place. One night, a curious and clumsy human named Wayne (Andy Samberg) stumbles onto the castle and its love at first sight for him and Mavis which drives daddy Dracula to do everything possible to keep them apart.
Oh, by the way, humans get the big unwelcome mat at Dracula’s. Also joining in on the fun is an all-star cast of ghouls, beasts, and goblins which includes Kevin James, Steve Buscemi, David Spade, Fran Drescher, Molly Shannon and Jon Lovitz.
Be sure to catch Hotel Transylvania when it checks into theaters on September 28th.
