New Goosebumps Trailer: “You’ve read them all, right?”

A new international trailer has been released for Goosebumps, the upcoming supernatural adventure film based on the writings of author R.L. Stine.

Jack Black plays Stine in what looks like quite the entertaining picture. The plot tells of a group of two kids who have to team up with the author and his niece when all the monsters from his books are unleashed on the world.

Like we said, we think this looks like a lot of fun. The energy is tangible, there’s plenty of creativity on display, and we’re loving the concept behind bringing Stine’s creations to life in one plot.

Rob Letterman (Shark Tale, Monsters vs. Aliens) directs from a screenplay by Darren Lemke (Shrek Forever After, Turbo).

Goosebumps, also starring Dylan Minnette, Odeya Rush, Jillian Bell, Amy Ryan, Halston Sage, Ken Marino, and Ryan Lee, hits the U.S. on October 16 and Australia on December 26.

Synopsis for Goosebumps:

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, and makes a quick friend in Champ (Ryan Lee). But every silver lining has a cloud, and Zach’s comes when he learns that Hannah’s mysterious dad is in fact R.L. Stine (Jack Black), the author of the bestselling Goosebumps series. As Zach starts learning about the strange family next door, he soon discovers that Stine holds a dangerous secret: the creatures that his stories made famous are real, and Stine protects his readers by keeping them locked up in their books. When Stine’s creations are unintentionally released from their manuscripts, Zach’s life takes a turn for the weird. In a crazy night of adventure, it’s up to Zach, Hannah, Champ, and Stine to team up and get all of these figments of Stine’s imagination – including Slappy the Dummy, the girl with the haunted mask, the gnomes and many more – back in the books where they belong to save the town.

And continuing with the international marketing angle, here’s a look at an overseas poster for the film:
