New animation trailers: Hotel Transylvania and Rise of the Guardians

Sony Pictures Animation's Hotel Translyvania has a new trailer out showing us where all monsters and scary villains go when they want to relax.  Hotel Translyvania, of course!  It's run by Dracula who wants this place to be the haven for monsters who want some peace and quiet until a human comes to invade their space.  The voice talents for this film feature Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Andy Samberg and Selena Gomez and will release in September 2012.

From monsters to guardians as Dreamworks Animation brings the story of Santa Claus, the Sandman, the Tooth Fairy and the Easter Bunny who all unite to save the children of the world from the evil Pitch in Rise of the Guardians.  And no, this isn't the sequel to Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole.  The movie is, however, based on the book by William Joyce who just won the Oscar for Best Animated Short for the The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore.  The voice cast is just as impressive with Chris Pine, Alec Baldwin, Jude Law, Isla Fisher and Hugh Jackman all lending their voice to the guardians and is executive produced by Guillermo del Toro.  Rise of the Guardians releases this November.  


  1. The Hotel Transylvania one that you embedded is gone from YouTube already, but Rise of the Guardians looks pretty sweet. It looks like a fresh and imaginative take on childhood figures, although I don't think the Sandman is as well known as he was 20 years ago and The Fantastic Flying Books was a great piece of animation, well deserving of the Oscar.

    And I'd also like to welcome you to the LAMB, great looking site you got here.

  2. Thank you for the welcome, I am looking forward to be a part of the movie blog community. I've fixed the link for the Hotel Transylvania video, it should be working by now. I'm looking forward to Rise of the Guardians as well, it has been under development for awhile and coming of the heels of William Joyce's Oscar win, it has great potential.
