MGM has just dropped the first teaser for the new animated incarnation of The Addams Family, probably the closest we’ll ever get to the internet’s dream of Oscar Isaac playing Gomez Addams.
Give it a look-see below, and if it sends ya, you’ll be able to see it on Halloween (very apropos). The Addams Family stars Isaac, Charlize Theron, Chloë Grace Moretz, Finn Wolfhard, Nick Kroll with Bette Midler and Allison Janney
Though my pal Ben Towle asks the key question that this trailer inspires: when are we getting high-end versions of the original Charles Addams comics anyway?
Edit: Correction! It comes out on October 11th. Hey! Even sooner!
