    How often do you get to say an actor is the best thing on TV and mean it? Literally. But during the eight glorious hours of the Netflix drama Wednesday, it is Thing that steals the show. In the latest Addams Family spin-off – currently the platform's most-watched title ever in a single week – the four fingers and thumb engage viewers with a performance that is, by turns, hilarious, endearing and, at one stage, heart-breaking. Thing makes its first appearance when Morticia (Catherine Zeta Jones) and husband Gomez (Luis Guzmán) drop their morbidly sinister daughter Wednesday (Jenna Ortega) off at her new school, Nevermore Academy. Needing someone to keep an eye on her, they secretly release Thing from the bottom of the car, from where it scuttles off like a frantic spider on its secret mission, only to be discovered quickly by Wednesday, denouncing her parents as 'evil puppeteers who want to pull my strings.' During the eight glorious hours of the Netflix drama Wednesday, it is Thing that steals the show.  It runs, points, opens bags, engages in...

    ACTRESS Christina Ricci has returned to the Addams Family saga in the new Netflix show Wednesday. But it's a role many fans of the series may not expect her to play. 5Christina Ricci looks nearly unrecognizable in the Netflix series WednesdayCredit: The Mega Agency 5Christina plays teacher Mrs. Thornhill in the seriesCredit: Netflix Christina, 42, played Wednesday Addams in her breakout role in 1991's The Addams Family movie and its sequel, The Addams Family Values in 1993. But in the Netflix series, with acclaimed gothic and fantasy filmmaker Tim Burton at the helm, Christina's character throws fans a curveball. At first glance, it may be hard to recognize Christina in the show, as she plays a red-headed Mrs. Thornhill, a botanical sciences teacher at Wednesday's school, The Nevermore Academy. Additionally, Christina's character wears black-rimmed cat glasses, and librarian-style clothing.

    If we’re being honest, Netflix’s Wednesday is, for much of its run, kind of blah—monotone, unimaginative, and just a little too keen on borrowing concepts we’ve seen before. But give it four episodes (I know, I know) and you’ll at least witness one of the best kooky dance scenes television has pulled off in a while. In an explosion of flailing arms, high kicks, and piercing stares, Jenna Ortega gives Wednesday (and Wednesday) a school dance to remember. What is the name chosen for Nevermore Academy’s school ball? The Rave’N Dance, of course. Our lady of black dresses and braids has little interest in the fête, but winds up with a date at her door anyway, thanks to a little meddling from her favorite disembodied hand, Thing. (Thing also snags her a dress for the occasion using the “five-finger discount.”) The stage is ready from the start for a set piece. The Rave’N Dance, like most school dances shown on television, looks a lot more expensive than a typical high-school prom. From the ice blue lighting to the crisp white...

    Days before Thanksgiving 1993, in The Addams Family Values, Wednesday Addams decided to go off-script during her summer camp’s Thanksgiving pageant. Now, 29 years later, a new generation can see her do pretty much the same thing in Netflix’s mysterious and spooky new series, Wednesday. The 1993 scene is by far the most memorable from the film: Dressed as Pocahontas, Christina Ricci’s Wednesday Addams tells her bubbly pilgrim scene partner, “You have taken the land which is rightfully ours. Years from now, my people will be forced to live in mobile homes on reservations. Your people will wear cardigans and drink highballs.” She continues: “We will sell our bracelets by the roadsides. You will play golf and enjoy hot hors d'oeuvres. My people will have pain and degradation. Your people will have stick shifts. The gods of my tribe have spoken. … And for all these reasons, I have decided to scalp you and burn your village to the ground.” Everything goes up in flames from there. The new series attempts to recapture that magic in its third episode,...

    The Addams Family gets a drearily formulaic makeover with Wednesday, a new Netflix series, premiering Nov. 23, that wedges the family’s mordant goth daughter into a boarding school drama that’s a pale photocopy of Harry Potter—and its lesser Percy Jackson/The School for Good and Evil/Vampire Academy offspring. Misbegotten on almost every front, it mines its name-brand IP for familiar romance and horror, and proves all the more depressing for being the handiwork of the very artist who decades ago pioneered such macabre teen terrain: Tim Burton. On a purely aesthetic level, Burton—who executive produces and directs the eight-episode series’ first four installments—cut-and-pastes his greatest hits in Wednesday: a bit of Beetlejuice and Edward Scissorhands here, a drop of Sleepy Hollow and Frankenweenie there. Charles Addams’ The Addams Family was always an obvious influence on Burton, but the auteur brings nothing new to this reimagined adaptation; he’s already done this sort of thing before, and with considerably more inventiveness and flair. Rather than striving for idiosyncrasy, Burton merely gives everyone what they want—or to be more precise, what they’re expecting, such...

    Pixabay A dark-haired woman displays a heavy makeup look. There is a new Netflix series on the horizon, and there is a star-studded cast attached to it. “Wednesday” will debut this fall, and the first teasers highlighting the incredible transformation of the cast have recently emerged. People are definitely buzzing over everything that has been released so far for this Addams family series, and former Hallmark star Catherine Zeta-Jones provides an especially enticing variation of her “Wednesday” character, Morticia Addams. Here’s what you need to know:Zeta-Jones Nails Morticia’s Vibe View this post on Instagram A post shared by Catherine Zeta-Jones (@catherinezetajones) Zeta-Jones appeared in Hallmark’s “The Return of the Native” quite early in her acting career, detailed her IMDb page.

In the first trailer for Netflix’s upcoming series “Wednesday,” Jenna Ortega, who plays the ominous teenager, sics a school of piranhas on a boys’ swim team after they messed with her brother, Pugsley Addams, played by Isaac Ordonez. “The only person who gets to torture my brother is me,” Ortega, 19, says before unleashing the flesh-eating fish into the pool, sending the boys screaming. The act of retaliation results in the dark-haired teen being expelled from her eighth school in just five years, leading her to attend a ninth, Nevermore Academy. Wednesday’s father, Gomez Addams (Luis Guzmán), and her mother, Morticia Addams (Catherine Zeta-Jones), met at the infamous academy, which they describe as a “magical place.” Jenna Ortega’s portrayal...
    Get those snapping fingers ready, because Netflix’s Wednesday series looks killer. Directed by Tim Burton and starring ascendant horror darling Jenna Ortega, the Addams Family spinoff/reboot/reimagining (whatever they're calling these things these days) has everything: tightly coiled braids, dead-eyed stares, and gleefully morbid one-liners. The first teaser finds our gloomy icon sticking up for her brother with a deadly prank involving some swim-team jocks and a couple bags of piranhas. Catherine Zeta-Jones and Luis Guzmán play Wednesday’s doting parents, the wickedly sensual Morticia and consummate wife guy Gomez. Isaac Ordonez plays Wednesday’s less-famous brother, Pugsley. (Depending on the iteration, the siblings’ relative ages change, but Wednesday has typically been the younger of the two.) Here, as in Addams Family Values, we meet Wednesday as she confronts the quirks and challenges of a new world away from her family—in this case, Nevermore Academy. (Thankfully for everyone involved, it doesn’t look like this place has an annual Thanksgiving pageant.) Other actors on-hand for the mayhem to come include Gwendoline Christie and Christina Ricci—who remains, for many, the most memorable...

    Netflix has finally unveiled the first look at Jenna Ortega as the Wednesday Addams in her new series, and from the looks of it, the scream queen has put her all into the gothic brat. In a crisp 15 seconds—go girl, give us nothing!—Wednesday introduces us to the beloved titular character. Yes, Netflix made this debut on a Monday. At least we didn’t have to wait two more days. There’s so little to actually describe about Ortega’s debut; still, it’s perfect. I have no critiques, other than the fact that I’ll have to wait a few months to watch this blessed(/cursed) series. Ortega appears in an eerie spotlight, looping her thick black hair into two neat braids. Then, she adjusts her collar, and is joined by The Thing atop her shoulder. They snap. That’s a wrap! The little details here prove that Ortega might just be a firm challenger to Christina Ricci, who has already been tapped for an unknown role in the new series.

    Have they come up with a color darker than black? Nearly two decades after retiring Wednesday Addams’ pigtails, Christina Ricci, the actress most associated with the self-proclaimed “not perky” character, is returning to The Addams Family universe in a new live-action show. The news comes with a twist, though: Ricci won’t be playing Wednesday this time around. That honor goes to Jenna Ortega, the rising scream queen who is about to star in Netflix’s upcoming Wednesday series, a new chapter of The Addams Family from Tim Burton. Ricci will, however, play a “major part,” Deadline reports. Morticia Addams? Guess again. She’ll be played by Catherine Zeta-Jones, opposite Luis Guzmán as Gomez Addams. Details about Ricci’s character are still being kept under wraps “in order to protect the surprise for fans”—although, this news seems to have spoiled any element of shock—as she continues to work on the show.

    (CNN)After its live-action movies in the 1990s, the Addams Family has found a logical foothold in animation, with "The Addams Family 2" scaring up enough laughs to merit the return, with a mix of low-brow humor for kids and old-time callbacks certain to sail over their heads. Only mildly creepy, it's just kooky enough to merit an encore, this time via a hybrid theatrical-digital release.Shrewdly, the focus of this adventure involves Addams daughter Wednesday (voiced again by Chloë Grace Moretz), who is experiencing that coming-of-age phase when she hates her kin, even beyond her customary attempts to murder her brother Pugsley (Javon "Wanna" Walton, replacing Finn Wolfhard, who aged out of the role).Concerned about Wednesday's attitude, the ever-cheery Gomez (Oscar Isaac) convinces wife Morticia (Charlize Theron) it's time for a family road trip, hoping to rekindle their familial bond. As it turns out, it's also a means of avoiding the unwelcome lawyer (Wallace Shawn) asking questions about whether Wednesday was switched at birth, which might explain her disenchantment with her folk, dryly musing about spending time with them, "It's torture,...
