Rob Zombie’s The Munsters Reboot Recreates The TV Show’s Classic Intro In Fun New Video

Reboots and sequels and continuations and legacy-quels are all inherent to the horror genre, from the most recent Halloween trilogy to the in-development Exorcist flick to Dan Trachtenberg’s upcoming Prey. (Oh yeah, prequels, too.) But even so, there’s something still bafflingly intriguing by hard-rocking filmmaker Rob Zombie taking on a feature-length reboot of the classic ’60s series The Munsters. And in true reiterated fashion, the first full teaser that Universal Pictures has released for The Munsters is a delightful recreation of the TV show’s memorable opening credits.

As seen above, Rob Zombie crafted a loving version of The Munsters‘ opening, in which each family member exits their iconic residence at 1313 Mockingbird Lane accompanied by their cast credit. No reason for credits here, since this obviously isn’t a TV show, but let’s note that the trio of frequent Zombie collaborators shown are Jeff Daniel Phillips as Herman Munster, Sheri Moon Zombie as Lily Munster, and Daniel Roebuck as Grandpa. And while there are obvious differences from the original, they do look pretty awesome. 

I love how awesome even just the front of the house looks in the teaser, especially with everything so crisp in black and white, making it appear as if the 1960s series enjoyed a  monumental remastering. The visuals also play into the “reveal” that the movie is definitely going to be a full-color affair, and we get a great shot of the three characters in all their saturated magnificence.

At the moment, it’s unclear when Rob Zombie’s The Munsters will be driving the Dragula into theaters, but stay tuned for more info, and check out our 2022 movie premiere schedule to see what other big projects are coming soon.

First Hocus Pocus 2 Trailer Brings Back The Sanderson Sisters, So Hide Your Children

While there are countless Christmas movies, there are far less surrounding the festival events of Halloween. But then there’s Disney’s 1993 fan favorite flick Hocus Pocus. Generations were brought up on the campy classic, and so the news of a sequel with the original cast broke the internet. The first Hocus Pocus 2 trailer has brought back the Sanderson Sisters, so guard your children and draw a circle of salt around you.

Not much is known about the contents of Hocus Pocus 2, but it’s expected to hit Disney+ (opens in new tab) in time for the titular Holiday. As you can see above, the first trailer revealed the release date as September 30th, while also featuring some limited footage of Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy. Bring on the musical numbers! Let’s break down what we’re being shown here. 

The first footage from Hocus Pocus 2 focuses on the new young protagonists who will seemingly be facing off agains the Sanderson Sisters throughout the streaming project’s mysterious runtime. The trio is played by Whitney Peak, Lilia Buckingham and Belissa Escobedo. They attempt to use magic themselves, and end up lighting the infamous black flame candle in the process. And just like that (lol) the witches return.

That’s when the three returning iconic actresses pop up for a brief but thrilling scene in Hocus Pocus 2‘s teaser. The pair are asked if they’re looking for the stage, resulting in Winnie saying “always” as her sisters smile in response. It’s limited footage, but that doesn’t make it any less thrilling. After all, their performance of “I Put A Spell On You” is one oft he most iconic moments from the original 1993 movie.

Barbarian Trailer Introduces Another Bill Skarsgård Thriller, And He Might Not Be The Villain This Time

It’s hard not to think of Bill Skarsgård, or any member of his iconic acting lineage, as a villain. Bill in particular landed a hell of a resume entry when he played Pennywise the Clown in Andy Muschietti’s remake of Stephen King’s IT. Seeing him advertised in a movie titled Barbarian, you’d think that Skarsgård is going to be playing yet another creepy heavy; but as you’ll see in the trailer for the upcoming movie, it looks like he might not be the villain this time.

20th Century Studios recently released the trailer for writer/director Zach Cregger’s August theatrical release. The basic framework sees Georgina Campbell’s Barbarian character meeting up with Bill Skarsgård’s at a random rental property. Apparently these two strangers were a case of double booking, though that doesn’t seem to be the case once the footage takes a decidedly creepier turn.

Lyle Lyle Crocodile’s First Trailer Introduces Shawn Mendes As The Greatest (Crocodile) Showman

New York City is a city known for the arts, acting as a magnet to all who want to make it big in that business of show. That much is true in the upcoming movie Lyle Lyle Crocodile, as author Bernard Waber’s classic children’s book is now a live-action/CGI comedy. With the first trailer being released to the public, we’ve now been introduced to who could arguably be named the greatest crocodile showman, voiced by pop sensation Shawn Mendes.

To think, this story might not have gotten started if the Primm family (Constance Wu, Scoot McNairy, and Winslow Fegley) hadn’t accidentally discovered young Lyle (Shawn Mendes) in their new apartment. Rented from eccentric entertainer Hector P. Valenti (Javier Bardem), Lyle Lyle Crocodile’s main setting is ready to be used as a launching pad for a new star. Provided, of course, he can get humanity to believe his voice is more powerful than his bite.
