Universal Pictures is pushing back the release dates for its upcoming movies, which include the Halloween sequels, Candyman, and The Forever Purge.
Halloween Kills is moving from October 16th, 2020 to October 15th, 2021, a complete full year! Halloween Ends is moving from October 15th, 2021 to October 14th, 2022. Creator John Carpenter and director David Gordon Green released a note on Twitter about the change, which you can read below, and it also added a short promo teaser featuring Jamie Lee Curtis as Laurie Strode sitting in the back of a truck screaming at the fire trucks driving by to “let it burn!” She does not want Michael Meyers to come back, but sadly for her… he will be back and ready to kill.
Candyman is moving from September 25th to Halloween Kill’s original date, October 16th, 2020. Then The Forever Purge is moving to July 9th, 2021.
