Goosebumps Official Trailer #2 – Jack Black, Amy Ryan

goosebumps Goosebumps is sort-of the movie version of the late ’90s series which told of horror anthology stories based on the children’s books by R.L. Stine.

I say sort-of as in this film, a young kid, played by Andrew Goodman, teams up with Hannah (Odeya Rush), the niece of young adult horror author R.L. Stine (Jack Black) after the writer’s imaginary demons are set free on the town of Greendale, Maryland.

The cast also features Halston Sage, Dylan Minnette and The Wire‘s Amy Ryan (aka Beadie), who also recently starred in the Oscar- and BAFTA-winning Birdman.

And there’s also an appearance from Goosebumps creator R.L. Stine, himself.

Goosebumps looks like predictable fluff, but this second trailer makes it look a lot more engaging. I hope it’s not because they’ve thrown everything worth watching into said trailer…

The film is released in the US just before Halloween, but in the UK we will have to wait until near the first half-term of the year, and it’s now been brought forward by a single day to February 5th.
