"It's simple, it's terrifying". This new trailer leaned more into the path of destruction we can expect Myers to create when he arrives in his hometown of Haddonfield, Illinois, in addition to showing that Laurie is more than prepared for the showdown. That means Laurie has been waiting four decades to end the menace of the incarcerated masked killer Michael Myers - and it sounds like she gets her chance.
The new Halloween trailer is here, and it just stepped the film's hype up to a new level.
Not only do the events in the film take place 40 years after the events of the original, but Halloween (2018) will release in theaters on October 19, a week before the 40th anniversary of the original Halloween's release. From there, he grasps a massive knife and makes his way out into the world, presumably hunting for Laurie Strode, being played once more by the franchise's original star, Jamie Lee Curtis. At the helm of this Halloween movie is filmmaker David Gordon Green (Pineapple Express, Your Highness, Prince Avalanche, Joe, Stronger), who co-wrote the screenplay with Danny McBride. Jamie Lee Curtis returns as Laurie Strode as does Nick Castle as Michael "The Shape" Myers.
Halloween costars Judy Greer, Andi Matichak, Toby Huss, and Will Patton, among others.
