The first ‘Goosebumps‘ film was released back in 2015. Jack Black starred in the film, which surprisingly received decent reviews from critics. It earned just over $150 million worldwide at the box office against a budget of $58 million. It also was a success after the box office, hitting #1 on the sales charts when it was released on home video.
Now they are dipping back inside R.L. Stine’s creepy catalog of stories to make a sequel titled, Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween.
What’s interesting is that Jack Black does not appear to be in this sequel, which is incredibly strange because he’s probably responsible for at least half of the box office return. People love him.
But what is EVEN MORE interesting is that the studio has neither confirmed nor denied him being involved in this sequel. The original release date for this film was September 21, 2018, but it was recently pushed back to October 12. Some people believe this is a sign that Black is secretly involved, because he has another film scheduled to come out on September 21.
Anyway, check out the trailer below….
