New ‘Goosebumps 2’ trailer teases the Gummy Bear attack

R.L. Stine’s Goosbumps monsters are unleashed on another unsuspecting town in the second trailer for the upcoming sequel, Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween.

The new trailer offers a bit more footage, but Sony runs the risk of spoiling another big moment: the Gummy Bear attack. Watch below at your own risk.

Haunted Halloween takes place in Wardenclyffe, a small town where R.L. Stine (Jack Black in the first movie) used to live. As it turns out, Stine left perhaps his most dangerous Goosebumps manuscript in his since-abandoned house there – as two young friends named Sonny (Jeremy Ray Taylor) and Sam (Caleel Harris) learn the hard way, after they open Stine’s enchanted manuscript and inadvertently unleash a whole lot of spooky creatures into our world.

The film also stars Madison Iseman, Ken Jeong, Wendi Mclendon-Covey, and Chris Parnell.

While Black was originally expected to return for Goosebumps 2, that ultimately ended up not happening after the sequel went through a series of writer, director and release date changes. Personally, a quick Black cameo or stinger to set up another film would keep Sony’s franchise dreams alive.

The actor didn’t lend his voice to the evil Slappy the Dummy this time around either, with Avery Lee Jones (the villain’s puppeteer) filling in his former spot. This new film is helmed by director Ari Sandel (The DUFF) from a script by fellow series newcomer Rob Lieber (Peter Rabbit).

Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween is set to arrive in theaters on October 12, 2018.

Here’s the official synopsis for Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween:

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.
