The first trailer, released Tuesday, sets the stage for weirdness with the opening line: “Every family is different but some families are more different than others.”
We hear the house warn “Get out!” as the ghoulish Addams’s arrive but they make it clear they are staying put.
“It’s hideous. It’s horrible. It’s home.”
Daughter Wednesday, voiced by Chloë Grace Moretz, appears with a bright red balloon only have mom Morticia deliver her dark take.
“There’s usually a murderous clown attached to the other end of these,” she quips.
Get ready! Trailer coming on everyone’s favorite day WEDNESDAY April 10th 😉 https://t.co/LfCwdTPfgV

“Think your family is weird? Think again,” is the trailer’s tag line.
Finn Wolfhard gives Pugsley his voice, while Nick Kroll breathes life into the nearly dead Uncle Fester.
