Trailer Reaction: “Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween”

Back in 2015 the popular childrens horror novel series “Goosebumps” got the cinematic treatment with Jack Black in the role of famed author R.L. Stine as well as one of the author’s most famous characters, Slappy the dummy. The film was a modest box office success earning $150 million on an $84 million budget warranting a sequel. Now that sequel is arriving in 2018 although this second film looks to be a bit different than the first, seemingly ditching Stine as an actually character as a new group of youngsters take on the living incarnations of the author’s popular monsters. The first teaser trailer doesn’t show us a whole lot, but it shows us enough. Let’s dive in and pick apart the details in the first trailer for “Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween”. As always you can view the trailer in fill at the end of the breakdown.

TRAILER REACTION: “Bumblebee”

Could it “Bee”? Could it really really “Bee”? Alright bad pun but seriously yesterday’s first look at the new “Transformers” spinoff prequel “Bumblebee” turned out to be actually kind of cool and surpassed my expectations greatly. With five films now in the series the “Transformers” franchise needs a shot of quality film making to recapture the awe of the original. The first teaser trailer for “Bumblebee” looks like it might just provide that shot with sneak peaks at the central human character, Bee’s personality in the film and even a somewhat-surprise villain. Let’s break down the teaser trailer for Paramount Pictures’ “Bumblebee”. You can view the trailer at the end of this review. Please let me know in the comments what you think.
