Michael Myers's Gets Some Face Time on New H2 Poster

May 8, 2009
The Weinstein Company has debuted a new poster for Rob Zombie's H2: Halloween 2 today. This is the second official teaser poster, as we already debuted an early one back in December. I'm going to make a risky prediction: Halloween 2 will flop. I know it's way too early to say something like that, and I hate doing it, but I've got a feeling their marketing is just going to fall apart and no one will want to see this in the end. I have nothing against this poster, I actually like the blue tinge to it and the big, bold design, but I'm just not feeling any excitement for this. If you think there is some buzz, then prove me wrong, I'd love to hear it!
Rob Zombie's H2 picks up at the exact moment the first movie stopped and follows the aftermath of Michael Myers' (Tyler Mane) murderous rampage through the eyes of heroine Laurie Strode.
H2: Halloween 2 is again both written and directed by musician and filmmaker Rob Zombie, of House of 1000 Corpses, The Devil's Rejects, and 2007's Halloween previously. This sequel is the continuation of a "reboot" of John Carpenter's original Halloween series that lasted for eight films until Halloween: Resurrection in 2002. The Weinstein Company will bring H2: Halloween 2 to theaters on August 28th.

#1 I second that. Even the teaser poster looked like a cheap paintshop cut and paste job. I also can't help but notice they gave michael a chelsea grin just like heath's joker.

It's horrible and it will still be 100 times better than the movie.

I don't think it's the marketing that will drive people away. The first movie is reason enough not to see this.

It looks like it's been made on a consumer level HD camera, looking at the quality of the image.

The poster looks extremely old, i loved the first one from the looks of it the this one will suck. Hope i am wrong.

believe it or not a poster doesn't make the movie. nor does it give you any insight on how good the movie will be.

Looks like a pirate =)

I could tolerate the crappy poster if, in return, they remove the retarded "ghost mom" shit from the movie. I understand that Zombie is obsessed with his wife, but, come on... How very disappointing. Stop raping the movie icons of my youth! >=(

#14, don't bother, no ones going to listen to you, not how it works here. and at #3, there is absolutely no trace of that at all. I will agree the poster looks bad, but its not going to be the final one, and posters aren't the movie.

why is that bastard even remaking these movies. there not even that old yet to be remade. havnt seen the first remake and i wont be running to see this anytime soon.
David on May 10, 2009
looks awful...just like the movie itself.

#18 20-25 years seems to be the remake launch pad. Anything up to 1985, good luck.

Im going to make myself very unpopular here but give Zombie a chance! His Halloween bought the character to a whole new audience. The franchise was dead before he ressurected it! H2o anyone? Utter fucking bullshit! The original however popular and critically acclaimed is pretty tame for todays audiences. I for one loved Zombies Halloween, Michael Myers is supposed to be a twisted psycopath and Zombie portrayed this perfectly, Myers is a violent character and so is the film, the way it should be! I will admit the trailer for Halloween 2 on the other hand doesnt sell it too well, but its only a first glimpse and i enjoyed the first so am going to reserve judgement for now, hopefully i wont be the only one.
