We’re closing in on exactly 5 months until Blumhouse’s Halloween, which promises a confrontation between Michael Myers and Laurie Strode 40 years in the making. Even though reports indicate the production is currently conducting reshoots, footage unveiled at CinemaCon suggests a trailer should be coming down the pike any day now.
Since Blumhouse’s Halloween will ignore every Halloween film except for the original, YouTuber Dr. Boogeyman has re-edited the original trailer from 1978 in a way that set’s the stage for what’s to come. Give it a spin and let us know what you think in the Comments section!
Official Synopsis: On a cold Halloween night in 1963, six-year-old Michael Myers brutally murdered his 17-year-old sister, Judith. He was sentenced and locked away for 15 years. But on October 30, 1978, while being transferred for a court date, a 21-year-old Michael Myers steals a car and escapes Smith’s Grove. He returns to his quiet hometown of Haddonfield, Illinois, where he looks for his next victims.
Here’s the 411 on Blumhouse’s Halloween:
Official Synopsis: Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers (Nick Castle), the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago.
Halloween is directed by David Gordon Green who co-wrote the script with his frequent collaborator Danny McBride. Besides Curtis and Castle, other cast members include James Jude Courtney, Judy Greer, and Andi Matichak.
Look for Halloween to hit US Theaters on October 19th.
