First Trailer: The New “Halloween”

Universal Pictures has released the first trailer for “Halloween,” the upcoming David Gordon Green-directed and John Carpenter executive produced direct sequel to the 1978 classic.

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.

The new trailer fits the CinemaCon reel description – an incarcerated Myers is visited by a British documentary crew and when a prison transport bus carrying him crashes, he escapes, finds the mask and begins a new reign of terror.

Judy Greer and Andi Matichak co-star as her daughter and granddaughter respectively. The film is planning an October 19th release.
