After waiting a while, Halloween kills appears to be a horror film best enjoyed on the big screen, and franchise star Jamie Lee Curtis can’t wait to see it in theaters with fans. Universal Pictures released an official trailer for the film on Thursday. The new footage showed Michael Myers’ escape and the start of another massacre in Haddonfield on Halloween night. If you haven’t seen it yet, you really should check out the video below, but be warned that it contains some mild spoilers.
Going to Facebook after the new Halloween Kills trailer was released, Jamie Lee Curtis posted a new poster featuring a burned Michael Myers mask. She also posted a message detailing how the timing couldn’t be better for the sequel’s release, as was the case with the 2018 film. The iconic scream queen also expresses her excitement at seeing the film on the big screen with fans this fall. From the Facebook post:
David Gordon Green and Danny McBride have made an intense and brutal second wave of their Halloween 2018 masterpiece. They were prescient in the 2018 film about the amount of trauma being acknowledged, mainly by the #metoo movement clashing with Laurie’s 40 years of trauma and now they were once again ahead of the curve on the amount of anger we have all seen and felt in 2020. WE ARE ALL MAD AS HELL AND WE WON’T TAKE IT AGAIN! vs evil, Laurie vs Michael. Happy Halloween. See you at THEATERS in October!”
David Gordon Green Returns to Direct Halloween kills using a screenplay he co-wrote with Danny McBride and Scott Teems. Jason Blum, Malek Akkad and Bill Block produced the film. John Carpenter, Cody Carpenter and Daniel Davies provided the score. Curtis is back to star as Laurie Strode, Michael’s nemesis since the very first allereerst Halloween movie directed by Carpenter in 1978.
Judy Greer and Andi Matichak return as relatives of Laurie Strode, and Will Patton also returns from the previous film as Deputy Frank Hawkins. Many original stars from the first film will return to reprise their roles, such as Kyle Richards as Lindsey Walllace, Robert Longstreet as Lonnie Elam, Nancy Stephens as Marion Chambers and Charles Cyphers as Leigh Brackett. James Jude Courtney and Nick Castle will share the role of Michael Myers.
Originally, Halloween kills would have been released last year. The pandemic changed those plans, and because the brutal film was likely to be best enjoyed on the big screen, it was decided to save it for a theatrical release this fall instead. The delay has also been reversed Halloween ends, which will also be released this year. This means Michael will likely survive at least one more killing spree, but will Laurie make it this time?
Halloween kills is slated to hit theaters after a one-year delay on October 15, 2021. The sequel Halloween ends will follow next year with a theatrical release on October 14, 2022. This news comes from Jamie Lee Curtis on Facebook.
