‘Hotel Transylvania 3’ now set for summer 2018

Sony Pictures Animation has move up the release of Hotel Transylvania 3 to a new prime summer release date of July 13, 2018. The film previously was scheduled on September 21 that year.

The new summer date will surely deliver a bigger box office pull with greater access to kids off from school and a greater seasonal multiple. The midsummer date is also a perfect match for the storyline of the film, which takes Drac’s Pack on an exciting adventure aboard a Monster Cruise Ship. The voice ensemble of favorites returns, including Adam Sandler (Dracula), Selena Gomez (Mavis) and Andy Samberg (Johnny).

The franchise has been a massive success, with the first two films earning $830M worldwide and owning the top two September openings of all time with a 32% increase in worldwide B.O. from the original to the sequel ($358.3M for the first tile, $473.2M for the second worldwide).

Moving away from the fall release will be a new test, but could deliver a massive draw for kids and parents.

Hotel Transylvania 3 now faces off with another animated movie, Paramount’s Amusement Park, directed by Dylan Brown and featuring the voices of Mila Kunis, Jennifer Garner and Matthew Broderick.
