New trailer for Goosebumps starring Jack Black!

An international trailer for Rob Letterman's big screen GOOSEBUMPS film has just arrived, and you can see it below. The film stars Jack Black, Dylan Minnette, Odeya Rush, Jillian Bell and Amy Ryan and a gaggle of monsters sprung from the mind of author R.L. Stine.

I'm admittedly still on the fence with this one. I want it to be enjoyable, and there are fun images and moments in the trailers so far, but part of me worries it's just going to be a CGI fest without any soul. The comedy doesn't really seem to be working either, but that could just be the trailer's fault. We'll see in a couple months.

The synopsis:

In Goosebumps, 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.

GOOSEBUMPS comes out in the U.S. on October 16th while spreading across the globe in the weeks after.
