First ‘Halloween’ Trailer Reveals the Return of Michael Myers
Jun 09 2018 by Francis Osborne
Her last turn as Strode came in 2002's Halloween: Resurrection, where the character was controversially killed off.
John Carpenter, the franchise's original visionary, will return to score the Halloween 2018 sequel. Carpenter serves as the movie's composer, creative consultant and executive producer.
Halloween is due for release on 18 October in Australia, and 19 October in the U.S. and UK.
The trailer ends with Michael doing what he does best, attacking an unsuspecting baby sitter, as Strode asks in a voiceover, "You don't believe in the boogeyman?"
Tweeting today, Curtis wrote: "You've waited 40 years for us both and the trailer is up now and a 60 second version is here!" There hadn't been a new installment in the franchise for quite some time and then news broke that David Gordon Green would be directing a sequel to the 1978 movie that started it all. Judy Greer plays Karen Strode, the daughter of Curtis' character, and Andi Matichak (Orange Is the New Black, Underground) plays Allyson, the granddaughter of Laurie Strode.
Directed by David Gordon Green and co-written by actor and comedian Danny McBride, the film is meant to be a direct sequel to the events which are depicted in the original 1978 film of the same name.
With that the excitement once Jamie Lee Curtis announced her plans to reprise her role that garnered supreme "scream queen" status.
John Carpenter'sHalloween is a classic horror flick, expertly ratcheting up the tension.
"Anyone who's a fan of any of these films will find nice little Easter Eggs acknowledging our salute to the filmmakers that have preceded us in the stories and mythologies as they've unfolded", revealed Green.
