The Goosebumps franchise returns with one last trailer for its second movie Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween. Jack Black returns to reprise his role as quirky children’s author R.L. Stine in a film chockfull of things that go bump in the night, including a creepy ventriloquist dummy. Goosebumps 2 is set to premiere in theaters on October 12, 2018.
About Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween
Official Description: Halloween comes to life in a brand-new comedy adventure based on R.L. Stine’s 400-million-selling series of books.
The film is directed by Ari Sandel, written by Rob Lieber, and produced by Deborah Forte and Neal H. Moritz. Jeremy Ray Taylor is one of the kid stars here and if he looks familiar it’s because he’s also the star of another horror film, It (2017) and he also played a bully in the first Ant-Man from Marvel. Wendi McLendon-Covey might look familiar to fans of The Goldbergs, she’s the mom and uses her extensive comedic talents to play Taylor’s mom. Madison Iseman plays Taylor’s sister after coming off of the hit Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle.
Goosebumps 2 features a cast that includes …
Wendi McLendon-Covey as Kathy Quinn
Madison Iseman as Sarah Quinn
Jeremy Ray Taylor as Sonny Quinn
Caleel Harris as Sam Carter
Chris Parnell as Walter
Ken Jeong as Mr. Chu
Jack Black as R. L. Stine
Avery Lee Jones as the voice of Slappy the Dummy (previously voiced by Jack Black)
Up until now the Goosebumps 2 trailers kept Jack Black’s involvement out. It was highly unlikely that Black wouldn’t appear, but it was still fun for there to be a bit of mystery around it. However, this is the business of selling tickets, and Sony knows they’ll sell a few more if people are assured Black will appear. This short but sweet trailer confirms that Black’s R.L. Stine is back in the film version of R.L. Stine’s books about one of R.L. Stine’s books running amok.
