We’ve been promised that the full Goosebumps movie trailer is FINALLY headed our way sometime this week, and today is the day! We also have some footage of Jack Black on “Good Morning America,” where he revealed the teaser of the trailer!
“The movie turned out dynamite,” said Black. “I’m really excited. The books are funny and scary and exciting, and we just wanted the movie to be as awesome and cool as the book series was. And I think we cracked the code.”
Check out the clip and the official trailer (both domestic and international versions) below!
Jack Black, Ken Marino, Amy Ryan, Odeya Rush, Ryan Lee, Halston Sage, Timothy Simons, Amanda Lund, and Dylan Minnette star.
In the film, directed by Rob Letterman, Black portrays famed children’s horror writer R.L. Stine, whose monsters, it turns out, are actually real. When they escape from his books and attack an unsuspecting town, it’s up to Stine and two teens to get the monsters back into their stories.
Goosebumps, which comes from a screenplay by Darren Lemke and Mike White, is produced by Neal H. Moritz through his Original Film banner and Deborah Forte of Scholastic Entertainment. Rob Letterman directs.
Look for it in theaters on October 16, 2015.
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.
