Jack Black Goosebumps

Columbia could’ve gone any number of ways with its Goosebumps movie, with literally dozens of Goosebumps books to draw from. But it chose to go the meta route, casting Jack Black as a fictionalized version of real-life Goosebumps creator R.L. Stine and pitting him against the very monsters that made him famous.

It’s something of a change of pace for Black, who plays slobs and screw-ups more often than he does bookish types. On the other hand, the film’s goofy tone looks right up his alley. Check out the first Goosebumps images, which also feature Odeya Rush and Dylan Minnette, after the jump.

The One I Love trailer

At first glance, Sundance drama The One I Love seems ordinary in every way. Elisabeth Moss and Mark Duplass play a pretty typical couple whose marriage is suffering from pretty typical problems, like boredom and resentment. Then their couples counselor prescribes a romantic getaway, and things take a turn for the bizarre.

To say more would be venturing into spoiler territory, but you can at least get a sense of the off-kilter tone with the first The One I Love trailer. Watch it after the jump.

Last night, Marvel Entertainment’s Joe Quesada stopped by The Colbert Report to announce that (just as we suspected) Steve Rogers’ longtime pal Sam Wilson would be taking over as Captain America in the comics.

Of course, that leaves Wilson’s old role of Falcon wide open. Quesada fortunately knew just the guy for the job, jokingly appointing Colbert himself as the new Falcon and even presenting him with some artwork. See it, and get to know the new Captain America, after the jump.

Dueling J.R.R. Tolkien Biopics Are in Development

Tolkien biopics

This winter brings us the final installment of Peter Jackson‘s The Hobbit trilogy, which means we’re done with trips to Middle-earth for the time being. (Well, at least until Warner Bros. figures out how to adapt The Silmarillion or deems it time to remake the Lord of the Rings series.) It does not, however, mean we’re done with J.R.R. Tolkien.

Two separate Tolkien biopics are in the works at the moment: the faith-based Tolkien & Lewis, which explores the fantasy author’s relationship with Narnia creator C.S. Lewis, and the more straightforward Tolkien, which is set up at Fox Searchlight. More details on both after the jump.

Laggies trailer

Dramas about overeducated, underemployed 20somethings in the throes of a quarterlife crisis are a dime a dozen on the indie film circuit. But Laggies seems worth a look anyway, if only because of the names attached.

Lynn Shelton (Your Sister’s Sister) directed the coming-of-age tale, which follows an aimless 28-year-old (Keira Knightley). When her anxieties about impending adulthood come to a head, she runs off to move in with a 16-year-old girl (Chloe Grace Moretz) and her single dad (Sam Rockwell). The first Laggies trailer has just arrived, and you can check it out after the jump.
