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.

Alexander and the Terrible Horrible No Good Very Bad Day

We’re having a pretty good day, thanks in part to Disney’s decision to drop the first official Guardians of the Galaxy still after months of anticipation. But if you aren’t, maybe the studio’s other big reveal will be more your speed.

Disney has just debuted a new image from Miguel Arteta‘s Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day, based on the classic children’s book by Judith Viorst. Though Alexander (Ed Oxenbould) is the only title character, the awfulness of his day does not seem to be limited to him. The rest of the family, which includes Steve Carell and Jennifer Garner, doesn’t look too happy either. Check out the photo after the jump.

If you liked what you saw when NBC posted the first seven minutes of the first episode of Awake earlier this week, you can now watch the other thirty-six. The network has released the entire pilot online for free, weeks in advance of its March premiere date.

Created by Kyle Killen (of the critically adored but amazingly short-lived Lone Star), the drama stars Jason Isaacs (Lucius Malfoy from the Harry Potter series) as a police detective who survives a devastating car accident to find that his life has been split into two realities. In one, his wife (Laura Allen, Terriers) survived the crash while his son (Dylan Minnette, Lost) perished; in the other, the reverse is true. Wilmer Valderrama, Steve Harris, Cherry Jones, B.D. Wong, and Michaela McManus also star. Watch the full-length episode after the jump.

NBC dropped an extended preview of its upcoming drama Awake last week, but today we have an even better look at the new show in the form of the first seven minutes of the episode. Jason Isaacs stars as Detective Michael Britten, who survives a car crash to find his life split into two realities: one in which his wife (Laura Allen, Terriers) lived through the accident, and another in which his son (Dylan Minnette, Lost) did. It’s a setup that requires a bit of explaining, but the premiere seems to get it out of the way fairly quickly. Watch the clip after the jump.

NBC’s got several promising shows on its upcoming slate, starting with tonight’s premiere of Smash, but another I’ve been looking forward to is this spring’s alternate-reality drama Awake. Harry Potter alum Jason Isaacs puts on an American accent to star as Detective Michael Britten, who wakes up after a car crash to find his life split into two realities. In one, his wife (TerriersLaura Allen) has survived the event; in the other, the survivor is his son. (Played by Dylan Minnette, from the last season of Lost.) Watch the extended preview after the jump.
