If you love Jack Black, you will love this movie! I am really nervous about wanting to go and see this movie, for the fact that Black is playing a semi-serious part. I am just so used to him acting in funny roles like Nacho Libre and School of Rock. Another aspect that makes me sceptical is that it has to do with Magic. Based off a book, Lewis Barnavelt, Owen Vaccaro, goes and lives with his Uncle, Jack Black, in a huge gated house with strange ticking noises and a lovely neighbor, Ms. Zimmerman, Cate Blanchett. Lewis then finds out that his Uncle and his new neighbor are a witch and a warlock, and because he wants to, Lewis becomes one himself. Lewis also learns that the strange ticking noises are a timer for when something sinister will get set free, and his Uncle and Ms. Zimmerman’s job to figure out what that something is. The house has a dark and ominous past, so it is up to Lewis, his Uncle Jonathan & Ms.Zimmer to stop the world from experiencing something truly horrific. Jack Black plays as Lewis’s Uncle Jonathan in the movie The House with the clock in its Wall, rated PG, coming out September 21.
