Hotel Transylvania 2  Sneak Peek! (click for more info and online tickets)

Drac's pack is back for an all-new monster comedy adventure in Sony Pictures Animation's Hotel Transylvania 2!  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!

In theaters nationwide on September 25th.

La bande de Drac est de retour pour une toute nouvelle aventure dans la monstrueuse comédie de Sony Pictures Animation, Hôtel Transylvanie 2 ! Tout a bien changé à l'Hôtel Transylvanie ...La stricte politique de Dracula d'un hôtel « pour monstres uniquement » s'est finalement assouplie, ouvrant ses portes aux clients humains. Mais derrière les cercueils, Drac s'inquiète que son adorable petit-fils, Dennis, mi-homme mi-vampire, ne montre aucun signe de vampirisme. Ainsi, pendant que Mavis rend visite à sa belle-famille avec Johnny, prête à un choc culturel sans précédent - "Vampa" Drac enrôle ses amis Frank, Murray, Wayne et Griffin pour plonger Dennis dans un véritable camp d'entraînement de monstre. Mais ils ne se doutent pas que le grincheux et très, très, très vieux père de Drac, Vlad a prévu de rendre visite à sa famille à l'hôtel. Et quand Vlad découvre que son petit-fils n'est pas un pur-sang - et que les humains sont maintenant acceptés à l'Hôtel Transylvanie - les choses vont se gâter !

Dans les cinémas nationaux le 25 septembre.


SUITABLE FOR ALL AGES

Over the Garden Wall  (click for more info and online tickets)

Two young brothers find themselves lost in a strange forest. Older brother Wirt, armed with too much sense, and little brother Greg, armed with not enough, must rely on a long parade of helpful (and not so helpful) strangers as they make the long journey in search of home. With the help of a bluebird named Beatrice and young Greg's nameless froggy friend, they must travel through this magic land of clothed animals and dancing pumpkins on their way home... before the mysterious Beast catches up with them.

Featuring Elijah Wood as Wirt, and the voices of Christopher Lloyd, Shirley Jones, John Cleese, and Tim Curry as some of the supporting cast of characters, Over the Garden Wall is a classic adventure tale from writer/director Patrick McHale (Adventure Time), who has given a simple brotherly bonding story an earnestly goofy spin.

Deux jeunes frères se retrouvent perdus dans une forêt étrange. Le frère aîné Wirt, trop rationnel, et son petit frère Greg, trop tête-en-l'air, vont devoir s'appuyer sur une ribambelle d'inconnus plein de ressources (quoi que pas toujours), tout au long de leur voyage pour rentrer chez eux. Grâce à l'aide d'un oiseau bleu nommé Beatrice et d'un grenouille sans nom amie du jeune Greg, ils voyageront à travers ce pays magique, rempli d'animaux habillés et de citrouilles dansantes, sur leur chemin du retour ... Jusqu'à ce qu'une mystérieuse Bête les rattrape.

Avec Elijah Wood incarnant Wirt, et les voix de Christopher Lloyd, Shirley Jones, John Cleese, et Tim Curry jouant les personnages majeurs, Over the Wall Garden est un conte d'aventure classique de l'auteur-réalisateur Patrick McHale (Adventure Time), qui nous offre à voir une fraternité dans une intrigue touchante et loufoque.

RATED 8+
