New TV Spot For GOOSEBUMPS 2: HAUNTED HALLOWEEN Features The Return of Jack Black
Jack Black has been absent from all of the marketing for Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween until now. I lot of people wondered if he was even going to be in the movie. I’m not sure why, but they decided to feature his big return as R.L. Stein in the sequel in this new TV spot. With his new film A House With a Clock In Its Walls currently out in theaters, maybe the studio just felt now was the time to make the big reveal of his return.
In the small town of Wardenclyffe on Halloween Night, two boys named Sonny (Jeremy Ray Taylor) and Sam (Caleel Harris) find a manuscript in an abandoned house that was previously owned by R. L. Stine called “Haunted Halloween.” When they open it, they release Slappy (Avery Lee Jones) who plans to create the Halloween Apocalypse with the help of his Halloween monster allies. Now, Sonny and Sam, alongside Sonny’s sister, Sarah (Madison Iseman), must work to thwart Slappy’s plot before all is lost.
The film stars Ken Jeong (Crazy Rich Asians), Wendi Mclendon-Covey (Bridesmaids), Chris Parnell (Hot Rod) Madison Iseman, Ben O’Brien, Caleel Harris, Jeremy Ray Taylor (IT), and Jack Black will also provide the voice of Slappy. Co-stars Dylan Minnette (13 Reasons Why), Ryan Lee (Super 8) and Odeya Rush (The Giver) from the first movie are expected to return.
The sequel was directed by Ari Sandel from a script by screenwriter Darren Lemke(Turbo). Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween will hit theaters on October 12th.
