"You've just released every monster I've ever created!" Sony has debuted the first official trailer for Rob Letterman's Goosebumps movie, adapted from the beloved children's horror book series by R.L. Stine. We've been hearing about this one for a while, since it actually showed up at Comic-Con last year, but this is the first trailer showing us some finished footage. This definitely looks like it was made for kids, with the various monsters looking a bit cartoon-y, likely on purpose. Jack Black stars as the author R.L. Stine, with a cast including Dylan Minnette, Odeya Rush, Amy Ryan, Ryan Lee, Jillian Bell. I like the Jumanji aspect with the books, the more monsters on the loose the better. This looks like it might be fun. Might be…
Here's the first official trailer for Rob Letterman's Goosebumps, direct from Sony's YouTube:
In his new neighborhood, teen Zach Cooper (Dylan Minnette) meets the beautiful girl next door, Hannah (Odeya Rush). But then Zach learns Hannah's father is 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 in his books 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 up t them to get the monsters back in the books where they belong. Rob Letterman (Gulliver's Travels) directs the film which Columbia Pictures releases this fall starting on October 16th.
