Halloween sequel will resurrect Michael Myers with first trailer this week

Horror’s ultimate grudge will go one more round when the Halloween sequel releases its first trailer this week.

Producer Jason Blum dropped some exciting news for horror fans in a series of tweets on Monday (June 4), when he confirmed that a trailer for the film will release on Friday — which is sadly Friday the 8th, rather than the more appropriate Friday the 13th.

Halloween picks up 40 years after the groundbreaking original film for what is being billed as the final showdown between undying serial killer Michael Myers (Nick Castle) and his most formidable nemesis, Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis).

Digital Spy recent chatted with mega-producer Jason Blum about this reimagining of Halloween, and he could barely contain his excitement.

“I feel really good about it, I saw a cut of it two nights ago. I think David did a terrific job,” Blum told us in April. “[Director David Gordon Green] did everything I hoped he would do which is respect the DNA of the franchise and bring something totally new to it and we’re really very very excited for people to see it.”

David Gordon Green worked on this Halloween sequel with Danny McBride and Jeff Fradley, with whom he’s previously collaborated on HBO’s Vice Principals.

Filming wrapped up in February, with Jamie Lee Curtis promising that a “terrifying” new chapter in Michael Myers’s saga awaited fans later in the year.

Halloween will open on October 18 in UK cinemas and the following day (October 19) in the US.
