“He’s waited for me. I’ve waited for him.”
HOLY COW. The new Halloween trailer has just dropped, and it’s amazing. This film jettisons all the sequels in favor of a more realistic story; Michael Meyers has been in a maximum security facility for the last 40 years. And he’s been biding his time y’all.
I love how the mask looks like something that’s been slowly rotting for the last 40 years. But I’m not a fan of how the trailer slips a HUGE spoiler about one of Michael’s attacks. It’d have been much more effective had it been saved for theaters. Ah well. Studios, amirite?
Read on after the jump for the info the studio just released. Halloween opens October 19th, 2018. But right now, check out when HE comes back home!
Universal Pictures will release Trancas International Films, Blumhouse Productions and Miramax’s Halloween on Friday, October 19, 2018.
Jamie Lee Curtis returns to her iconic role as Laurie Strode, who comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers, the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago.
Master of horror John Carpenter executive produces and serves as creative consultant on this film, joining forces with cinema’s current leading producer of horror, Jason Blum (Get Out, Split, The Purge, Paranormal Activity). Inspired by Carpenter’s classic, filmmakers David Gordon Green and Danny McBride crafted a story that carves a new path from the events in the landmark 1978 film, and Green also directs.
Halloween is also produced by Malek Akkad, whose Trancas International Films has produced the Halloween series since its inception, and Bill Block (Elysium, District 9). In addition to Carpenter and Curtis, Green and McBride will executive produce under their Rough House Pictures banner. Ryan Freimman also serves in that role.
