Every story ever told has a beginning, a middle, and a twist, according to Jack Black‘s fictionalized version of Goosebumps author R.L. Stine. In the film, the twist is that the Goosebumps books are actually prisons for the monsters created by Stine’s imagination, and opening the books releases the monsters.
A new Goosebumps international trailer is just packed with those monsters, as the books are opened and dozens of creatures escape. There’s a werewolf, a Yeti, the invisible boy, a giant preying mantis, and plenty more. Check out the footage and all the Goosebumps movie monsters below. Read More »

For people of a certain age, the Goosebumps books by R.L. Stine were the introduction to reading, and to horror, and probably to many other things. Now there’s a Goosebumps movie, with Jack Black as the lead, playing a fictionalized version of Stine himself, and Jillian Bell, Amy Ryan, Ken Marino, and Kumail Nanjiani playing characters who end up touched by the not-so-fictional world and creatures created by the writer. Check out the Goosebumps trailer below. Read More »
I’m in Las Vegas for the CinemaCon convention (formerly ShoWest), which is the largest gathering of movie theatre exhibitors each year. The convention is packed with talks about subjects such as how to maximize profits, and features a show floor filled with the newest and best concessions equipment. More notably, most of the major movie studios hold presentations of upcoming film line-ups for the next year and beyond. Companies even show some of their films early to get some excitement from those booking the screens.
Wednesday afternoon we saw a presentation from Sony Pictures showcasing some of their big upcoming films including Perfect Guy, Concussion, 5th Wave, X-Mas, Spectre, Goosebumps, Pixels, Aloha, Ricky and The Flash, The Walk and Money Monster and more. After the presentation I recorded a spoiler free Sony CinemaCon reaction video reaction with Steve from Collider, which you can watch that now embedded after the jump.

The Sony Pictures panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2014 could more appropriately have been titled “Goosebumps.” After a super-short mention of the upcoming Chris Columbus film Pixels, author R.L. Stine popped on screen to tell fans about Goosebumps, which opens in Summer 2015. Director Rob Letterman (Monsters vs. Aliens) showed up for the panel, along with star Jack Black, a mere two days after they wrapped production. The pair debuted some new footage and news regarding the meta storyline of the film, in which the characters from all of Stine’s Goosebumps books escape the original manuscripts.
Below, read more about the Goosebumps movie trailer and panel from San Diego Comic-Con.

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.
