Inside Out saturday night live

This weekend, when you sit down to see Inside Out, you’ll probably be a little too blown away to get up once the credits start to roll.

Hotel Transylvania 2 trailer

Family issues get more complicated in Hotel Transylvania 2 when the half-vampire grandson of the Adam Sandler-voiced version of Dracula doesn’t seem to be developing his monster side, and when Drac’s daughter gets a real taste of the human world while visiting human in-laws.

Get a taste of Brooks’ work in the Hotel Transylvania 2 trailer, below. Read More »
