Jack Black Starring Film

Sony has debuted the first official Goosebumps trailer and poster for director Rob Letterman‘s big screen adaptation of the YA horror book series by R.L. Stine.

Jack Black stars as the author whose creations on the page suddenly go running amuck in real life.The cast also includes Amy Ryan, Ken Marino, Dylan Minnette, Odeya Rush, Jillian Bell and Ryan Lee.

The film opens October 16. Check out the trailer and poster for this fun monster mash which looks more glossy and action-oriented than expected.

My hope for this film has decreased by quite a bit. Looks like a Nickelodeon movie. Wait, this is actually aimed for kids, not the adults who grew up with the books! Oh okay then, the trailer looks good.

Jack Black Starring Film

Upset about moving from a big city to a small town, teenager Zach Cooper (Dylan Minnette) finds a silver lining when he meets the beautiful girl, Hannah (Odeya Rush), living right next door. But every silver lining has a cloud, and Zach’s comes when he learns that Hannah has a mysterious dad who is revealed to be R. L. Stine (Jack Black), the author of the bestselling Goosebumps series. It turns out that there is a reason why Stine is so strange… he is a prisoner of his own imagination – the monsters that his books made famous are real, and Stine protects his readers by keeping them locked up in their books. When Zach unintentionally unleashes the monsters from their manuscripts and they begin to terrorize the town, it’s suddenly up to Stine, Zach, and Hannah to get all of them back in the books where they belong.
