According to Jack Black's fictionalized version of R.L. Stine, every good story has a beginning, a middle, and a twist. I'm sure sure M. Night Shyamalan would wholeheartedly agree with him. We have a new international trailer for the film to share with you that offers us a bit of new footage from the film, some of which includes the monsters that are unleashed and causing chaos.
The film seems to be getting a good amount of buzz from fans online. I'll be taking my kids to go see the movie, so for my sake, and the sake of all the other parents who will be taking their kids to see this movie, I hope it's entertaining.
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.
The movie was directed by Rob Letterman (Shark Tale, Gulliver’s Travels), but it seems to have a Joe Dante kind of feel to it. That just might be because of the subject matter. Goosebumps opens up in theaters on October 16th.
