Monsters Kick Off Summer Vacation By Cruising Into Cannes Film Festival To Launch A Sneak Peek From “Hotel Transylvania 3: A Monster Vacation”

CANNES, FRANCE – Drac’s Pack splashed down in a dazzling and colorful parade to kick off their monster vacation at the start of the 71st Cannes Film Festival at The Carlton Pier on May 7, 2018.   

Following the aquatic procession and photo call along the French Riviera, director Genndy Tartakovsky, alongside some of the film’s international voice talent, debuted a new sneak peek from the upcoming summer film, “Hotel Transylvania 3:  A Monster Vacation.”  The movie opens in theatres worldwide starting in late June through August 2018.

The parade was quite the spectacle and featured many of the beloved characters from the film as well as some new additions, including the mysterious ship captain Ericka, who cruised into the festival in a series of colorful themed watercrafts.   The monster parade also featured a boat-load of Gremlins, waterskiing Zombie Bellhops, and thrill-seeking Witches riding a precarious banana boat.

Director Genndy Tartakovsky was joined by the movie’s international voice talent including Anke Engelke (voices “Ericka” in Germany), Rick Kavanian (“Drac” in Germany), Janina Uhse (“Mavis” in Germany), Raya Abirached (“Ericka” in the Arabic language) and Lesia Nikitiuk (“Ericka” in Ukraine).

The event culminated with Tartakovsky pushing a coffin-shaped button to launch content from the film across the internet — an airplane sequence where the Gremlins take charge. Sony Pictures Animation’s sneak peek at “Hotel Transylvania 3: A Monster Vacation” debuted globally and simultaneously on YouTube and YouTube kids. Find it at HotelT3Cannes.com.

“The Emoji Movie” soars into Cannes on the Eve of the Festival’s 70th Anniversary

CANNES, FRANCE – On Tuesday May 16th, on the eve of the 70th Cannes Film Festival, actor T.J. Miller (who voices Gene) from “The Emoji Movie” was in Cannes to celebrate the opening of the film festival and the worldwide launch of the film trailer with an exciting stunt and colourful Photo Call on the French Riviera.

“The Emoji Movie” will be released in theaters by Columbia Pictures globally from the 28th July 2017.

The Emoji Movie unlocks the never-before-seen secret world inside your smartphone. Hidden within the messaging app is Textopolis, a bustling city where all your favorite emojis live, hoping to be selected by the phone’s user.

In this world, each emoji has only one facial expression – except for Gene (T.J. Miller), an exuberant emoji who was born without a filter and is bursting with multiple expressions.

Determined to become “normal” like the other emojis, Gene enlists the help of his handy best friend Hi-5 (James Corden) and the notorious code breaker emoji Jailbreak (Anna Faris).

Together, they embark on an epic “app-venture” through the apps on the phone, each its own wild and fun world, to find the Code that will fix Gene. But when a greater danger threatens the phone, the fate of all emojis depends on these three unlikely friends who must save their world before it’s deleted forever.
