I hate to be That Guy, but this looks horrible. Absolutely atrocious casting. I mean, I like Luis Guzmán, but having him fill Raul Julia's shoes? Ugh.

That was my first reaction, but then I thought "Tim Burton?"

Could still be good.

Pretty much my thought. I'll give it a go. TV and previous movies aside, Gomez was original a little creeper of a character.

I worked on a movie that she had a small part in.  I wouldn't do that again on purpose.

Oddly enough, I was aware of the comic strip. But I think the changes that were made in the TV show and subsequent movies have been enormously positive. John Astin was decent-looking and hilarious, and at times even suave. His lovemaking was comedic, yet still kinda hot. Raul Julia was off the hook charismatic, and he combined it with some great Latin dance moves.

Nope, we can't go back. I'm an old fart, but I don't want to see ugly Gomez on my screen.

That said, Addams Family Values can suck it. The Addams should always be joyous and triumphant.
 
2022-08-17 6:50:12 AM  
Pugsley looks creepy. Gomez looks kooky. Morticia looks mysterious. Wednesday looks spooky.

I guess, they're all together ooky.....
 
2022-08-17 7:04:53 AM  
I don't know about this, CZJ has never been a particularly competent actress, she has skated by strictly on her looks and basically took over Madeline Stowe's career which is astonishing to me. Here she seems to be cosplaying Angelica Huston as Morticia. That will not play well.
 
2022-08-17 7:07:31 AM  
Don't flail me for this, but CZJ is too busty to be Morticia.  Insanely beautiful, but not ethereal enough.

That picture just looks like a family decided to cosplay the Addams Family for a Christmas card.   It makes me wonder just how much influence Tim Burton is actually having in the project it is he just throwing his name on it because it does not even look like he is trying.   It may come out later that he and Rob Zombie had a bet as to who can take a similar theme and get the worst ratings, who knows.  I have already been burned out by the CW Riverdale/Sabrina series and tried that fan made Scooby series so it will probably be a first episode watch them hard pass for me unless something hooks me which is hardly fair for any series as they tend to take three episodes to get going strong.
 
2022-08-17 7:45:26 AM  
At this point, everybody has such a strong opinion on what the characters are supposed to be like that there's no way they can match the expectations. Might as well go ahead and commit to whatever vision you have instead of compromising to please what you think the average viewer wants.
 
2022-08-17 7:46:41 AM  
Luis Guzman is a great actor, but he's always felt miscast in this role, and seeing him there kinda cements it. He looks like the snooty neighbor that hates the Addams and wants to steal their land for the untapped mineral rights underneath it.

I hope Hocus Pocus 2 turns out good, because between this and the Munsters trailer, I'm losing hope for this halloween.

Its obvious that politically correct hollywood recasted all male character as female character and vice versa. And thats why CZJ character looks like Raul Julia

It was a hateful/fearful take on southern and Eastern European migrants.  Chas Addams knew his audience, and he pandered to them.  At least he didn't draw any Seussian bucktooth Japanese.

None of the Adams Family were of any specific ethnicity. They were just supposed to be creepy, but in a funny way.
 
2022-08-17 8:38:42 AM  
I like that they tried to texture the sides of Morticia's dress in an attempt to make her appear as impossibly thin as the original Morticia was.

Like another poster said, I like Luis Guzman, but I'm not sure about him following up Astin or Julia in the role.  Then again, I have no idea who could follow those two.

I think Guzman can pull it off. Guy has great comedic timing and acting.

The hairpiece is absolutely horrible though.

Except Luis Guzman would actually be closer to the original Charles Adams design for the character. It was John Astin who made him a Lothario, and then later Raul Julia who cranked up the charm for his iconic performance, but Gomez was originally intended to be a total creep.

Your work is puerile and under-dramatized. You lack any sense of structure, character, or the Aristotelian unities.

True triumph only comes through adversity and Addams Family Values is fantastic.

2022-08-17 9:39:54 AM  
If it's meant to be a continuity, the casting is problematic, but there wasn't a way it wasn't gonna be, so whatever.  You do the best you can, and maybe it'll be great.

If it's an AU / reboot / whatever, then the casting only matters by quality, not resemblance to previous casting.

My first thought was too bad she's too old now for the part, but Gillian Anderson is only about 13 months older than Catherine Zeta-Jones.

This.  Maybe he confused it with the third movie?  Because Family Values is better than the first and ridiculously quotable.

Addams family was always odd, old money Americans with a crazy past. It was never about immigrants.
For that, you had to go to those really scary first generation immigrants, The Munsters.

The correct casting is to have Christina Ricci play Morticia.  I think this photo is real, from a few years ago.

It took only a single picture of syphilis in high school health class to make me quite sure I did not want to suffer it.  Go ahead, Google some pictures and you might discover the new talent of looking at something and understanding the ability of not being able to enjoy it.  If you already have syphilis though Google haggis instead, quite similar situation.
 
2022-08-17 11:30:21 AM  
I will still hold out for Tommy Wiseau's version.  Especially as he plays Gomez as himself.  Someone from the old country with money no one knows where it comes from, that would be like James Woods quality of method acting starting from the very beginning.
