Back in October David Gordon Green‘s second installment of his Halloween trilogy, Halloween Kills (review), made its premiere on Peacock’s streaming service, now it’s heading to home release.
Halloween Kills: Extended Cut, is set to arrive on Amazon this December, on the 13th, but that’s not all, the Halloween Kills 4K Ultra Steelbook will be unleashed on January 11th, exclusively at Best Buy.
Speaking with Collider, David Gordon Green teased the extended cut.
This is the director’s cut through and through, but there’s an additional scene that we filmed that was scripted. And actually, I think is a pretty brilliant scene. So we’re going to do an extended version on the DVD, just so people can see an extended ending that’s different and cool,” Gordon Green told the site. “We ended up lifting it when I became more confident of where we’re going to pick up in the next movie; it didn’t feel authentic to where we’re going to go. So we lifted it. So we just said, we’re kind of coming up with, okay, then if we lift that, where do we end? And it was actually Couper Samuelson at Blumhouse, he was just, let’s just end when it’s over. Lights out. He mentioned it, he was like remember inRogue One, when you wanted the movie to end? When it was a Darth Vader going ballistic at the door.”
Gordon Green continued, “It’s part of the movie. It’s just not part of the appropriate momentum of…I think it was cool in its own right as watching a one-off movie, butknowing where we’re going to exactly where we’re going to pick up which, you’ll know in a year, it wasn’t the right look in the eye that we needed to give the audience.”
David Gordan Green‘s Halloween Kills has a huge returning cast that includes Jamie Lee Curtis, Judy Greer, Andi Matichak, Robert Longstreet, and original Halloween actor Charles Cyphers who will be reprising his roles as Sheriff Leigh Brackett.
