Halloween: international trailer offers up even more footage
The international trailer for Universal’s upcoming Halloween revival is here, and it’s offering even more footage to scare you into theaters this October. While first trailer (which you can see here) shows a quaint small town carrying on four decades after Michael Meyers went on his first killing spree, the international trailer is an all-new cut that focuses solely on the battle Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) has been waiting for her entire life. It even gives a glimpse of a mask-less Michael Meyers — albeit from the back of his head. Check out the new international trailer for yourself below along with a new behind-the-scenes featurette!
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. Curtis is joined in the film by Judy Greer who plays Karen Strode, the daughter of Curtis’ character, and Andi Matichak (Orange Is the New Black, Underground) who plays Allyson, the granddaughter of Laurie Strode.
The upcoming sequel film will be ignoring the continuity of all of the sequels in favor of telling its own story. Curtis previously appeared in four films in the series, including the 1978 original, its 1981 sequel, 1998’s Halloween H20: 20 Years Later, and Resurrection.
Master of horror John Carpenter will executive produce and serve as creative consultant on this film, joining forces with cinema’s current leading producer of horror, Jason Blum (Get Out, Split, The Purge, Paranormal Activity). Inspired by Carpenter’s classic, filmmakers David Gordon Green and Danny McBride crafted a story that carves a new path from the events in the landmark 1978 film. Green also directs.
Halloween will hit the theaters on October 19.
