The new trailer for Halloween is shot as if it is from a crime documentary and we’re digging it. It’s fitting, seeing that the David Gordan Green-directed movie features a documentary crew working making a feature about the masked killer.
“Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers, who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago.”
“A British documentary crew comes to the States to visit Michael in prison for a retrospective of the maniac’s night of terror — but their project becomes way more interesting when Myers escapes custody, retrieves his signature mask and seeks revenge on Laurie, with others naturally being part of his impressive career body count along the way.
In the decades following the fateful Halloween night that forever altered the former babysitter’s life, Laurie has armed and prepped herself for Michael’s inevitable return — to the detriment of her family, including daughter Karen and granddaughter Allyson.”
Written by Danny McBride, the film, which will ignore every sequel, stars Jamie Lee Curtis as Laurie Strode, Judy Greer as Karen Strode, Laurie’s Daughter, and Andi Matichak plays the role of Laurie’s granddaughter, Allyson.
Will Patton (Armageddon), Rob Niter (The Gym), Rhian Rees (The Lears), Virginia “Ginny” Gardner (Marvel’s Runaways), Miles Robbins (My Friend Dahmer), Dylan Arnold (Mudbound), and Drew Scheid (Stranger Things) co-star.
The film was scored by John Carpenter who serves as executive producer along with Malek Akkad, and Jason Blum. Green and McBride will executive produce under their Rough House Pictures banner.
Michael comes home on October 19, 2018.
