Pumpkin-headed scarecrows, giant spiders made of balloons, witches with glowing heads—these are the true stars of Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween, a frivolous piece of family entertainment that’s more worried about creating cool monsters than it is a captivating story. Which, oddly, ends up working out better than…
Sitting down to watch The House with a Clock in Its Walls, you know exactly the movie you want to see. A fun, exciting, kind of scary but whimsical adventure with great visual effects, fun characters, jokes, chills, thrills—all of that. The actual film has some of those things, but not enough to make it truly worth…
The first trailer for The House With a Clock in Its Walls was... fine. Cool visuals, great cast, but tonally, it felt a bit awkward. Well, that’s gone in this second trailer, which ups the wish-fulfillment, fantasy, and adventure elements in a way that will get you very excited.
The latest film from the director of Hostel and Cabin Fever features a house so haunted, it has its own heart. However, despite Eli Roth’s reputation, this isn’t a gory horror movie. It’s produced by Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment, which means the scares are fun for the whole family!
It’s hard to tell when Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle star Jack Black is being serious or not, and this latest stunt is no exception. Black has “revealed” that he and co-star Nick Jonas (formerly of the Jonas Brothers) have written an epic theme song for the upcoming jungle romp. At least, I hope so.
The formula of Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle sounds like it can’t miss. Put some big personalities in a gorgeous setting and have them tell funny jokes and perform a lot of action. When those big personalities are played by stars like Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, and Jack Black, the odds of success are even higher. …
Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (the actual new title) won’t open until Christmas, but exhibitors got a first look at footage from the film at CinemaCon 2017. It revealed the not-so-secret premise, a connection to Robin Williams and, frankly, a lot of fun, family-friendly action.
After Karen Gillan’s skimpy jungle wear showed up in the Jumanji set photo last week, there were constant promises that it would make sense once you saw the film. These new plot rumors actually do explain the outfit, but there’s only one way they might manage to justify it.
After the first real image from Jumanji was released yesterday, we were understandably a bit confused by the various outfits on display. And, in the case of Karen Gillan’s half an outfit, a little bit nervous. Today, Gillan herself gives a clue as to why her character’s clothes are so small.
Kevin Hart put the first photo of most of the cast (admittedly, a Jonas brother is missing) up on Instagram. And, well, he, Dwayne Johnson, Karen Gillan, and Jack Black all look exactly like the the most basic caricature of “jungle explorers” you could imagine.
As if the casting of Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart together in a remake of Jumanji wasn’t enough, now news has broke that a third comedy star is joining the mix. It’s Jack Black, and this is just getting out of control.
Watching this video might make you want to go back to Jack Black’s school of rock. Here’s Black, and Tenacious D bandmate Kyle Gass, performing one of the greatest movie themes of all time: Queen’s “Flash Gordon.” Aaaaaaaa!
Jack White's music video for his latest single That Black Bat Licorice is three videos in one. If you just hit play you'll see an animation of Jack White. If you hit "3" while the video is playing, you will get a live action version of the first one. And if you hit "B", a video of people headbanging like mad.
During the Goosebumps movie presentation at San Diego Comic-Con, Jack Black brought out the film's real star: Slappy the Dummy. Together, they did a ventriloquist routine on stage... one that didn't end well for Black.
We finally got a peek at the Goosebumps movie. Jack Black came to Comic-Con to talk about playing Goosebumps author R.L. Stine, and we saw his Stine battle his own monstrous creations after they had escaped from his books.
The world has been Weird Al-less since 2011—it was three years ago that Alpocalypse was released, bringing us gems like "Polka Face." His new album, Mandatory Fun, drops tomorrow and he's gifting us with eight new videos, one each day this week. First up, he tackles the most parody-worthy song in recent memory:…
A spooky reunion? Jack Black is in negotiations to star in the feature film adaptation of R.L. Stine's Goosebumps series. This would reunite him with Gulliver's Travels and Shark Tale director Rob Letterman.
No one ever believed town treasure Bernie could have killed his companion, the insufferable snake woman Marjorie Nugent. Oh, well!
You may or may not remember that Jack Black was in line to star in a comedic version of Green Lantern at one point. It turns out the unproduced screenplay is available online, and... it's not very funny.
Gulliver's Travels is neither a movie nor an adaptation of Jonathan Swift's fantasy yarn. Rather, it's a cultural artifact of American pop circa 2010, an immediately dated voyage through the seas of our own cinematic feculence.
