"I have prayed every night that he would escape…" Universal has debuted the second official trailer for the new take on the Halloween horror franchise, titled simply Halloween - in theaters this October. This highly anticipated sequel brings back Jamie Lee Curtis, who starred in the original 1978 film by John Carpenter as high school student Laurie Strode. At the helm of this Halloween movie is filmmaker David Gordon Green (Pineapple Express, Your Highness, Prince Avalanche, Joe, Stronger), who co-wrote the screenplay with Danny McBride. The cast of this new one also includes Judy Greer, Virginia Gardner, Will Patton, Toby Huss, Miles Robbins, Jefferson Hall, Haluk Bilginer, Andi Matichak, with Nick Castle (who also starred in the original 1978 film) as Michael Myers. This is an intense trailer, I love the footage they use - freaky shots all over, smart cuts, and powerful as hell. You have to see this new trailer.
Here's the second official trailer (+ poster) for David Gordon Green's Halloween, direct from YouTube:

Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) 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. This new Halloween movie is directed by acclaimed American filmmaker David Gordon Green, of the films George Washington, All the Real Girls, Snow Angels, Pineapple Express, Your Highness, The Sitter, Prince Avalanche, Joe, Manglehorn, Our Brand Is Crisis, as well as Stronger previously. The screenplay is written by David Gordon Green and Danny McBride, with Jeff Fradley; based on characters created by John Carpenter and Debra Hill. This is produced by Jason Blum at Blumhouse. Universal will release DGG's Halloween movie in theaters everywhere starting October 19th this fall. Who's in for this? Your thoughts?
Good old Michael. I mean, this might be a good watch for old times sake. But Michael, things have changed. The world is full of your doppelgängers. You're not alone. And of course, you're not sane either. Whether you cared about it or not ...

Another franchise 've loved since childhood, even though most of its sequels were subpar at best. This trailer gives me a good feeling about it, and that kind of scares me. I've been trying to keep expectations in check, but now I'm starting to get excited. Damn it's nice hearing that music again. Please be amazing.

Good movie. A bit short though.

Out of all the many sequels this has spawned....this trailer actually had me interested. Could be a worthy successor to a classic...

This was an impressive trailer. Feels like a great conclusion and less of a cash grab than I had expected. Love that Jamie Lee Curtis chose to do this, she's awesome and I trust her judgement.

Dig the trailer and hoping it's just down right entertaining. Won't top the original, but I'd love to be sadly mistaken.
