We were promised that the first trailer for the latest installment of the Halloween franchise would be arriving today, and arrive it has.
You might have thought that this first trailer would be just a teaser, and fans of the series would have been excited to see that. But Universal decided to skip that step and jump right to the full official trailer release. Not a bad deal at all.

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 executive produces and serves 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 is also produced by Malek Akkad, whose Trancas International Films has produced the Halloween series since its inception, and Bill Block (Elysium, District 9). In addition to Carpenter and Curtis, Green and McBride will executive produce under their Rough House Pictures banner. Ryan Freimman also serves in that role.
Halloween will be distributed worldwide by Universal Pictures.
Also starring in the movie is Judy Greer, Andi Matichak, Virginia Gardner, Will Patton, Toby Huss, Miles Robbins, Jefferson Hall, Haluk Bilginer, Omar J. Dorsey, Christopher Allen Nelson, Nick Castle, and James Jude Courtney.
Halloween will be released in theaters on October 19th.
This October, Michael Myers returns. Watch the #HalloweenMovie trailer now.
