An international 'Haunted Halloween’ trailer will give you 'Goosebumps'
Halloween arrives a little early this year when Sony Pictures’ “Goosebumps” sequel hits the big screen. Today, an international trailer for “Goosebumps: Haunted Halloween” has debuted and you can check it out in the player above!
Directed by “The DUFF” helmer Ari Sandel from a script by “Peter Rabbit” scribe Rob Lieber, “Goosebumps 2” brings back to life the terrifying stars of Stine’s immensely popular book series. The trailer features everything from witches and werewolves to monstrous gummy bears, all alongside, of course, Slappy, the antagonistic ventriloquist dummy from the first film.
Based on the works of R.L. Stine, the first “Goosebumps” movie was directed by Rob Letterman, who is currently at work bringing Nintendo’s “Detective Pikachu” to the big screen. “Goosebumps” wound up a hit with audiences and critics alike, pulling in $150 million at the worldwide box office. Jack Black headlined the original as both Stine and the voice of Slappy, but it is currently unclear as to whether or not he’s connected to the sequel in any way.
The “Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween” cast includes Wendi McLendon-Covey, Madison Iseman, Jeremy Ray Taylor, Caleel Harris, Chris Parnell and Ken Jeong. It is produced by Deborah Forte and Neal H. Mortiz with Timothy M. Bourne and Tania Landau serving as executive producers.
