Blumhouse Productions and Universal Pictures have revealed the first poster for the new Halloween movie! We have to wait six months for the movie to hit the theaters, but after watching the poster I know what to expect.
Jamie Lee Curtis returns to her iconic role of 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. Judy Greer plays Karen Strode, the daughter of Curtis’ character, and Andi Matichak (Orange Is the New Black, Underground) plays Allyson, the granddaughter of Laurie Strode.
Curtis’ character was unceremoniously killed off in Halloween: Resurrection in 2002, but in true Halloween franchise fashion, it would appear that the new Halloween film will be ignoring the continuity of many of the sequels in favor of telling its own story. Curtis has previously appeared in four films in the series, including 1978 original, its 1981 sequel, 1998’s Halloween H20: 20 Years Later, and Resurrection.
Halloween will hit theaters on October 19, 2018.
