My dad is Brad Strickland, who continued the Bellairs series after John Bellairs passed away. The film producers were kind enough to invite my family to the set to see the production in progress. I was absolutely astounded by the detail -- I've been on film sets before and usually when you get up close everything looks really fake. This one didn't. It was clear the set design, props and costume departments had all gone to incredible lengths to make the film look special. I got to see a really cool scene being shot (there's a tiny glimpse of it in this trailer). Obviously that was before any effects or processing could be done to the movie. This trailer looks fantastic. I love the tone. I can't wait to see the movie!

This book (early 70s) partly inspired the Potter novels. The boy is 10; Harry is 11. Both are orphans. The story opens with the boy riding a bus to his wizard uncle's house; HP rides a train to a wizarding school. The boy goes to live w/his uncle; HP goes to live with uncle & aunt. The kid's uncle turns out to be a wizard; HP turns out to be a wizard. The uncle & the witch who's his best friend are the template for Dumbledore & McGonagall. Best of all, the paintings in the uncle's house move, like the pix in the "Daily Prophet."

Haven't had the chance to see it yet but for those of you saying its a rip off of Harry Potter, this was actually part of a series of books that were written about 25 years before Harry Potter was even thought of.

Using the old Universal and Amblin logos is a nice touch. Hopefully this movie's actually halfway decent.

Can't wait!!! At IMAX theaters in the States they are supposed to show this movie with Michael Jackson's Thriller at the beginning. I'm sad I can't see it here in Germany, but I will rent the movie as soon as possible!

Might be a bit assumptive of me, but looks like Roth and the Production Design team took great care in nailing the aesthetic look of a Bellairs' book. Lots of woodwork, gothic and vintage pieces he adorned his stories with. I'm loving this.

I can't say the title of this film or the trailer is very inspiring. Hopefully, Jack Black's character and charisma will help drive the film (though this didn't come across on the trailer). It's good though that they haven't given too much away and hopefully the film will be full of unexpected surprises.

I'm hoping the old Universal logo plus Amblin means a real effort to evoke the period feel of the books.

Fun fact: Eli Roth is directing this movie. This will be his first family film and his first gothic film and his first book to film adaptation.
