On Vacation with The Addams Family 2

8 Jul

Addams Family Sequel Is Coming Halloween 2021, First Poster HereRelease Date:
October 1, 2021

The Addams Family are on vacation! While the release date for the sequel is unusual–it’s playing this Autumn–the idea is straight in line with their ideology to never do things when it should happen but at the worse time.

This film directed by Greg Tiernan and Conrad Vernon looks to add to the kooky. We see them visiting Niagara Falls, The Grand Canyon and Miami–along with many other famous American locales.

There’s not too much to take from the trailer which recently released. We can expect a lot of crazy funky sit-com type situations may be comparable to the live-action iterations this series is based on. It doesn’t look like it’s going to follow up on how the family and neighbourhood have come together after the events from the last film.

Instead of the satire on being true to thyself and the look at modern society, this latest take is updated for the Millennial generation. We can certainly expect the family bond to tighten up (or should that be falling apart?) going on by this film’s end.

AKB48 to Livestream @TokyoDome June 27 JST!

AKB48 Group Asia Festival 2021 ONLINEFor more information, please visit the official website.

Anyone yearning for that summer concert experience will have to wait a little bit longer because of the pandemic. Thankfully, some show promoters are keeping it virtual. Anyone wanting their J-pop will be glad to know AKB48 will be performing at Asia Festival 2021 Online.

This event was first held back in January 2019 and won instant accolades. In the same year, on August 24th, a second event was held in Shanghai and was met with equal enthusiasm. The look into what made each group unique was key to this show’s success.

This pay-for event will present performances from the internationally popular J-Pop idols and their sister groups on June 27. Just like a real concert, different levels exist for those wanting “the perks” like pre-show, post-performance exclusives or souvenirs to this digital show.

This event will unite AKB48’S sister groups from across Asia, including JKT48 (Jakarta), BNK48 (Bangkok), MNL48 (Manila), AKB48 Team SH (Shanghai), AKB48 Team TP (Taipei), SGO48 (Ho Chi Minh City), and CGM48 (Chiang Mai).
