No need to dust off the cobwebs: Metro-Goldwyn-Meyer and United Artists Releasing have revealed that a follow-up to their animated The Addams Family will rise from the gloom on October 22, 2021. The first outing added to its No. 2 opening weekend with an extra $4.8M on Monday thanks to the school holiday (Indegenous Peoples Day/Columbus Day) for a four-day take of $35M.
Directed by Sausage Party duo Conrad Vernon and Greg Tiernan and animated at Cinesite Studios, The Addams Family marks Charles Addams’ iconic macabre characters’ first animated big screen outing. The film pits America’s favorite Halloween family against a scheming home makeover show hostess (voiced by Allison Janney), and features the voices of Charlize Theron and Oscar Isaac as Morticia and Gomez, with Chloe Grace Moretz as Wednesday, Finn Wolfhard as Pugsley, Nick Kroll as Uncle Fester, Bette Midler as Grandmama and Snoop Dogg as Cousin Itt.
