Sony Pictures will release “Goosebumps 2” on Digital and the Movies Anywhere App on December 25th, followed by the Blu-ray and DVD release on January 15th. The winter release will give families something new to watch that isn’t a holiday-themed movie, letting everyone mix things up when traveling back from the holidays.
“Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween” did well in theaters, opening last October with a $15M weekend at time when “Venom” was dominating the box office. The family-thriller went on to make over $46M domestically and over $92M worldwide.
The film follows best friends Sonny and Sam as they hope to find treasure in other people’s trash with their after-school junk business. After cleaning out the old Stine house, they open a locked book that frees the supernatural nightmare named Slappy. Now, with the help of Sonny’s sister Sarah, they’re in a race against time to get the sinister dummy and all the creatures he’s brought to life back into the pages before he unleashes total pandemonium.
The film is based on R.L. Stine’s beloved book series and stars Wendi McLendon-Covey (The Goldbergs), Madison Iseman (Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle), Jeremy Ray Taylor (It), Caleel Harris (Castle Rock), and Chris Parnell (Rick and Morty), with Ken Jeong (Crazy Rich Asians). The movie was directed by Academy Award-winner Ari Sandel (2005, Best Short Film-Live Action, West Bank Story) from a story by Rob Lieber and Darren Lemke and screenplay by Lieber.
The film is produced by Deborah Forte and Neal H. Moritz and is executive produced by Timothy M. Bourne and Tania Landau.
