NETFLIX REVEALS WEDNESDAY

The streaming platform reveals the image of Tim Burton’s Addams Family members in ‘Wednesday’.

Fans of Tim Burton and the Addams Family are overwhelmed with excitement. The new Netflix series entitled Wednesday, directed in its first four episodes by the renowned director who has signed films such as Beetlejuice and Edward Scissorhands, who will also be in charge of the executive production of all the fiction, will be launched on the streaming video platform next fall. The first details about its format are already known.

For now, Netflix has released the first images of the actors who, with Jenna Ortega in the lead in the role of the dreadful Wednesday, make up the cast of this spin-off.

In a first picture made public of the entire Addams family — The streaming platform already released a teaser presenting its main protagonist alone last month of June — and in others collected by Vanity Fair magazine, fans have been able to find out what Morticia‘s characters will look like, represented by Cahterin Zeta-Jone herself; Pugsley, Wednesday‘s brother who is played on this occasion by Isaac Ordonez and lastly, Gomez, who actor Luis Guzmán will play.

Collen Atwood, in charge of wardrobe

Tim Burton’s trusted costume designer and winner of four Academy Awards for Memoirs of a Gheisha, Chicago, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, and Alice in Wonderland will dress the Addams Family. Netflix has allowed us to see the result of Collen Atwood’s work in her trailer.

Atwood, staying true to the vignettes of the Addams family that were published in The New Yorker, has designed for Morticia, the matriarch of the clan, a very tight black dress with a pleat at the hip and flared sleeves that give the necessary empowerment to his character so that it makes her shine.

Wednesday, the great protagonist, will also appear with a reinterpretation of the classic buttoned dress with a collar and shirt sleeves that she has already worn in many other previous Addams family audiovisual productions.

In this case, Atwood wanted to design a much longer garment for her and had it combined with thick black stockings and black patent leather shoes. This is the color of Wednesday, and she couldn’t give it up.

Finally, the male clothing designs are also elegant, sober, and with the somber touch, that fiction requires. Pugsley will wear Dr. Martens-style boots, shorts, and a sweater with horizontal stripes that help achieve the effect of a somewhat innocent boy.

MADAME TUSSAUDS HOLLYWOOD WAX MUSEUM

When you walk through Hollywood, you can find 2,690 stars along the sidewalk calling out famous and celebrated singers, songwriters, actors, directors, and anyone who has had a lasting impact on Hollywood. You can also escape the heat and bustle of the city by exploring Madame Tussauds where you are treated to life-size replicas of all your favorite Hollywood Superstars.

Madame Tussauds Hollywood features three floors filled with wax replicas of singers, late night hosts, actors and actresses, and even famous characters from movies like Boris Karloff as The Mummy. You are first greeted with a wax figure of Baywatch Zac Efron in front of the Santa Monica Skyline, a massive King Kong next to the Empire State building, and a game face ready Kobe Bryant. After you purchase your tickets, you are welcomed into the museum and given free rein to tour and visit all three floors. Following COVID-19 guidelines, guests are to start from the third floor and make our way down for one-way traffic to flow better. The first-floor features Hollywood’s newest members and current pop culture icons: Demi Lovato, Jason Derulo, Carrie Underwood, Jennifer Lopez, Kylie Jenner, Morgan Freeman, Simon Cowell and more. And not forgetting to mention, the brand-new Ariana Grande wax figure dressed in her Rule The World music video outfit. The figurine is also posed in a pink-themed set from her famous 7 Rings video with a pyramid of champagne glasses behind her. This is a new piece for the museum and not yet updated in all of Madame Tussauds locations, so it is definitely not to be missed!

On the second floor, you pass Meryl Streep, Obama, and Jim Carrey; the second floor also features all of old Hollywood’s stars: Marilyn Monroe, Judy Garland, John Wayne, esteemed directors: Alfred Hitchcock, Martin Scorsese and Quentin Tarantino, and even actors portraying characters from popular films of that era: Hannibal Lector (Anthony Hopkins) locked in his cell, Danny (John Travolta) next to his red-hot rod, and Edward Scissorhands (Johnny Depp). After you tour through Old Hollywood, you arrive at the last floor featuring all your favorite stars from the 90’s: Britney Spears, Tupac, Snoop Dog, Michael Jackson, Shakira, Beyoncé, Madonna, and so on. This section features the ultimate 90’s bedroom and would transport you back in time.

After your trip down memory lane, you will arrive the last feature in the museum, a Marvel theme wax exhibition, where you can check out a few Marvel cast members figures in full costume: Spiderman, Captain America (Chris Evans), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), etc. Though it is not compulsory, you can also purchase the 4D Marvel Movie screening for an additional $5 for an immersive experience. The glasses the museum provides will allow you to see the 3D aspect of the film, and be prepared for sound effects, water, bubbles and even ropes to hit your feet. All of these elements make for an out of this world experience, the movie is 10 minutes long. Make sure to put any items you don’t want getting wet away! If you are not a fan of getting wet, I recommend sitting father back. Stop by the gift shop on your way out and grab a cup, key chain, or shirt to remember your visit to Madame Tussauds Hollywood.

In addition to offering a fun and safe day out of the house, you are also able to learn about the process of making a wax figure, see examples of the process, and in pre-Covid times purchase your own wax mold of your hand. It takes about 800 hours to create a wax figure, beginning with the detailed measurement of the model from the circumference of your head to the width of your ankle. Every measurement is specific to ensure the wax figure looks as accurate as possible. After the measurements are taken, workers begin sculpting, painting, designing, making the costumes and finally dressing and staging the wax figures. This is no easy task and while some figures are more life-like and realistic than others, they are all impressive. It really makes you question who in the room was real and who was a wax figure! The detail in every figure is astonishing, from freckles, scars, tattoos, and hair. It feels as if you are really meeting and interacting with these stars rather than standing next to a wax figure.

Come meet your favorite artists and movie characters at Madame Tussauds Hollywood today! To buy tickets for Madame Tussauds, visit the website or buy them in person.
