Filming has wrapped in North Carolina on Blumhouse’s Halloween, as the studio chases an October 19th release, timed to coincide with the 40th Anniversary of the original Halloween (directed by John Carpenter). Though it will still be a while before we see any official artwork or a trailer, fans are so anxious for a poster, they’re making them themselves.
The latest recaptures the simplicity of the original Halloween movie poster—and it’s simply perfect. The watermark on the poster credits Rafael Araujo, but it’s not certain if this is the same Venezuelan graphic artist known for his compositions based on sacred geometry. Still, it was just too good not to share!
Here’s everything we know about Blumhouse’s Halloween:
Official Synopsis: 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.
Blumhouse’s Halloween is aiming for an October 19th release date. In addition to Jamie Lee Curtis (reprising the role of Laurie Strode), the film also features original Shape actor Nick Castle reprising the role of Michael Myers. Other cast members include Judy Greer, Andi Matichak, Virginia Gardner, Miles Robbins, and Will Patton. The film is directed by David Gordon Green from a script he co-scribed with his frequent collaborator Danny McBride.
