SAN DIEGO - The "Twilight" blood-suckers aren't the only big-screen vampires at Comic-Con. Adam Sandler's putting the bite on audiences, too.

On opening day at the fan convention Thursday, Sony Pictures previewed footage of Sandler's animated comedy "Hotel Transylvania," in which he provides the voice of the grand-daddy of vampires, Dracula.

It's the follow-up to a rare flop for Sandler, whose string of hits came to an end this summer with the dud "That's My Boy," co-starring Andy Samberg.

Opening Sept. 28, "Hotel Transylvania" against co-stars Samberg, who provides the voice of a human falling for Dracula's vampire daughter.

"Hotel Transylvania" director Genddy Tartakovsky says he's not worried that Sandler and Samberg are coming off a flop. The filmmaker says his PG-rated family tale is wildly different from the R-rated "That's My Boy."
