While the holiday is celebrated in mid Fall, the summer has been hot with Halloween movie news. We learned earlier this month that “The saga of Michael Myers and Laurie Strode will continue” with two sequels to David Gordon Green’s hugely successful 2018 Halloween. Halloween Kills is set to hit theaters in 2020 and be followed by 2021’s Halloween Ends. Jamie Lee Curtis is set to return as Laurie Strode in both films. Now rumors are circulating that another character from John Carpenter’s original 1978 classic could be returning to the series: Tommy Doyle.
Studios don’t need to be in Hall H at the San Diego Comic-Con to make big news. Sometimes, all it takes is a simple announcement. Take Universal Pictures, for example. They announced today the titles and release dates for the two follow-ups to last year’s Halloween, the semi-reboot/sequel to the 1978 iconic slasher film of the same name.
Horror master John Carpenter posted to Twitter, “The saga of Michael Myers and Laurie Strode isn’t over” along with the announcement video, which you can watch here below.
Universal Pictures Home Entertainment has revealed the release dates for the latest entry in the Halloween franchise on digital, 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD.
The movie, which is a direct sequel to John Carpenter‘s original and saw original star Jamie Lee Curtis returning to play Laurie Strode once again, was made on a $10 million budget and brought back nearly $253 million worldwide. It also stars Judy Greer, Andi Matichak, Will Patton, and Virginia Gardner, and is directed by David Gordon Green who co-wrote the screenplay with Danny McBride and Jeff Fradley.
You can find all of the details on the home video releases along with a pair of promo videos below.
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.
