Jack Black surprises students in Minneapolis at special 'Goosebumps' screening


A special screening of the new movie "Goosebumps" at a school in Minneapolis got even more special Wednesday, when students were joined by none other than the film's star – Jack Black.

There were screams of delight when the Hollywood star entered into the main hall at the Richard R. Green Central Park School in south Minneapolis, which the Star Tribune captured on a video you can watch here.

He was joined by a couple of his young co-stars, Odeya Rush, Dylan Minnette and Ryan Lee, as they joined children for pictures and held a Q&A session.

Black is in town promoting the film, in which he plays R.L. Stine, the author of the popular Goosebumps children's horror book series.

The film sees several of Stine's imaginary creations somehow come to life and let loose in a town in Maryland.

Black has been conducting interviews with various Twin Cities media outlets, including at WCCO and KARE 11.

On Tuesday he was at the Mall of America for a fan event along with his co-stars, conducting a Q&A and signing autographs.

The movie is set for release on Oct. 16.
