Fans of R.L. Stine’s ‘Goosebumps‘ have a reason to be excited with some early previews of this 2016 feature film. No, not more early shots of Jack Black who is playing R.L. Stine and sees his creations come to life but we actually are finding out a bit about the monsters that we’ll be seeing! Also, while we initially had the film down as a March 23rd, 2016 release date the latest promotional banner seems to have the movie coming out in 2016 and an updated synopsis which can be viewed at the end of the post.
So how were the monsters revealed? Well, actually it is part of a “Create a Meme Contest” for the film that the studio is running.
Now there isn’t an official word if all of these characters will actually be used in the film but with potentially all of Stine’s works coming to life in it I wouldn’t be surprised for them to all pop up on the big screen, at least briefly. We’ve also got some other promotional images that were included as well which you can see below. These shots show our heroes not looking as if they are having the best of times when dealing with these monsters:
What do you think of the early shots from ‘Goosebumps’? Obviously these aren’t going to be the final look of the monsters but it’s probably a good idea of what we’ll be seeing when the film is released on the big screen.
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’ will open April, 2016 and is set to star Jack Black, Dylan Minnette, Odeya Rush, Amy Ryan, Ryan Lee, and Jillian Bell
