Rob Letterman’s GOOSEBUMPS is definitely going to make some noise at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, so to get our feet wet before the big day they’ve release a few new stills giving us our first look at some of its villains. If you're a fan of GOOSEBUMPS then you'll probably remember that asshole Slappy, who is apparently the one responsible for unleashing hell on Jack Black, who plays R.L. Stine in the film. Typical Slappy...
"I love the idea of just starting in a grounded world, and letting a supernatural element enter it — and staying with the characters and seeing how they deal with something impossible to imagine,” says Letterman.
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 (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.
GOOSEBUMPS hits theaters on August 7, 2015 and stars Jack Black, Ken Marino, Amy Ryan, Odeya Rush, Ryan Lee, Halston Sage, Timothy Simons, Amanda Lund and Dylan Minnette.
