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

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.
