Hotel Transylvania 2 brings a second helping of the animated film where humans and monsters live together in Hotel Transylvania. Using a screenplay co-written by Robert Smigel and Adam Sandler, the film was directed by Genndy Tartakovsky. Hotel Transylvania 2 opened in theaters in 3D on September 25, 2015.
In Hotel Transylvania 2, several years have passed since the first film though things haven't changed that much at the hotel where humans and monsters prosper together. In the hotel operated by Count Dracula (voiced by Adam Sandler), daughter Mavis (voiced by Selena Gomez) and son in law Johnny (voiced by Andy Samberg) have birthed a half-human, half-vampire son, Dennis (voiced by Asher Blinkoff). This has made Dracula and his many best friends (including voices by Kevin James, Steve Buscemi, David Spade and Keegan-Michael Key) very happy.
So when Mavis and Johnny head to California to visit Johnny parents (voices by Nick Offerman and Megan Mullally) and contemplate a move away from Hotel Transylvania, Dracula offers to babysit with the hidden agenda to prove that Dennis is more vampire than human, which would mean Mavis and Johnny would need to stay at Hotel Transylvania. So Dracula calls in his father, Vlad (voiced by Mel Brooks), but when Vlad arrives at the hotel, Vlad is surprised to see the state of the hotel, creating more questions for Dracula than answers.Hotel Transylvania 2 opens in theaters already showing other great late summer 2015 films including Everest, Black Mass, Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials, and The Visit.
