Oscar Isaac & Charlize Theron Toy With BDSM In ‘The Addams Family’ Trailer

The first trailer for the animated The Addams Family reboot has slunk into existence, presenting a kid-friendly version of the malevolence Charlize Theron and Oscar Isaac brought to their earlier roles.

They lend their voices to Morticia and Gomez Addams, the heads of a family whose surname has been synonymous with camp spookiness since the 1960s. It is yet to be seen if the evil those two brought to their respective turns in Monster and Ex Machina translates to a CGI kids’ film.

Joining them are Chloë Grace Moretz as Wednesday Addams, Finn Wolfhard as Pugsley Addams, plus champs including Nick Kroll, Allison Janney, and Bette bloody Midler. How and why this project has amassed such a talented and Oscars-friendly cast is unknown. Part of its occult charm, we guess.

There’s also a scene where Morticia tightens a vice around Gomez’ head, all but confirming those two are full-on BDSM maniacs. A bold choice for what is ostensibly a family film, but it’s 2019: if you’re not consensually crushing one of your lover’s appendages, you’re living in the past.
