Today, the first official teaser poster for the upcoming HALLOWEEN sequel was released. The poster features a weary and wrinkled mask for The Shape.
The film is scheduled to be released on October 19th, exactly six months to the day. It will be distributed by Universal Pictures. The film is directed by David Gordon Green and is executive produced by John Carpenter and Blumhouse. Carpenter will also be scoring the film as well.
Universal Pictures will release Trancas International Films, Blumhouse Productions and Miramax’s HALLOWEEN on Friday, October 19, 2018.
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.
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, and Green also directs.
HALLOWEEN will be produced by Malek Akkad, whose Trancas International Films has produced the HALLOWEEN series since its inception. Green and McBride will executive produce under their Rough House Pictures banner.
HALLOWEEN will be distributed worldwide by Universal Pictures.
This Halloween sequel has to be the most highly anticipated horror film of 2018. I’m cautiously optimistic for the film but I feel that if Jason Blum is involved, it most surely won’t be a dud. We’ll have to wait and see.
