Universal Studios and Blumhouse Productions have released a new trailer for the upcoming Halloween sequel. The film takes place decades after the original Halloween movie and ignores the progressively terrible sequels that followed. Jamie Lee Curtis is reprising her role as Laurie Strode and is not playing games with her psychopathic brother Michael Myers.
Here is Universal/Blumhouse’s official synopsis:
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 Freimann also serves in that role.
Halloween will be distributed worldwide by Universal Pictures.
Halloween drops 10/19/18 in theaters everywhere.
