Jack Black seems to be making the rounds in family friendly adventures; following his appearances in the revamped Goosebumps and 2017’s Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, he’s now taking the lead in The House with a Clock in it’s Walls as the uncle of an orphaned child who teaches him the ways of magic and sorcery. Before long, the pair must find a way to destroy an evil clock that serves as a countdown to the apocalypse.
The film doesn’t look to be anything special, but does look like a serviceable family fantasy. Jack Black has always been very talented, and with Cate Blanchett in tow, it looks to be a fun time.
The House with a Clock in it’s Walls is out 21st September.
