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.

Following the recent reveal of the first poster for the upcoming Halloween from Blumhouse Productions and Universal Pictures comes the news that the 1978 original’s writer, director, and composer John Carpenter will return to provide the score for the new film.
A poster has been released for Blumhouse’s new Halloween movie, which features a close-up of the one and only Michael Myers.
Despite sharing a title with the original, the movie is actually a sequel, which sees Jamie Lee Curtisreturning to the franchise she began her film career with back in 1978. To make things even more confusing, original director John Carpenter, who’s acting as a creative consultant on the new entry, has said that the movie is a direct sequel to the first, ignoring all of the others that followed it. But despite the confusion, it’s still a new Halloween made with some guidance by Carpenter, which is all that’s really needed to be excited.
The latest Halloween movie has taken some interesting twists and turns since we’ve known about it. First we found out that the legendary John Carpenter himself, who directed the original and hasn’t been involved with the franchise since Halloween III: Season of the Witch over three decades ago, would be helping to create this new movie. After that came the slightly confusing, yet intriguing decision to hire David Gordon Green and Danny McBride, the duo who previously worked together on Pineapple Express, Your Highness, Eastbound & Down, and Vice Principals, to make the movie.
More recently, there was even more exciting news for fans of the franchise: Jamie Lee Curtiswill be returning to Haddonfield once again. And this time she’ll be joined by Judy Greer, who will be playing her daughter.
Now Carpenter himself has another interesting twist for us. He’s revealed that the newest movie will completely ignore every other entry in the franchise except the original. See what he had to say below.
Reboots are just a thing we are accustomed to seeing in headlines nowadays. But some reboots catch our interest, especially when it falls into the right hands. Such as Blumhouse’s new take on Halloween.
The film will bring backJamie Lee Curtis who made a name for herself as the ultimate scream queen in John Carpenter‘s original 1978 classic slasher film. When announcing her return, Curtis said “Same porch. Same clothes. Same issues. 40 years later. Headed back to Haddonfield one last time for Halloween.” So while it is something of a reboot of the franchise, the movie is also a sequel and canon. And to make sure it is canon, the film will be adding one interesting connection.
New reports confirm that Judy Greer will be joining the cast as Karen Strode, Laurie Strode’s daughter. More on the story below.
