Jamie Lee Curtis is Back in First Trailer for DGG's 'Halloween' Movie
"He's waited for this night. He's waited for me." Universal has released the first trailer for the new take on the Halloween horror franchise, titled simply Halloween (again). 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 new Halloween 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. We don't know much about the plot, except that it directly ties to the first film and is about Myers returning to home again. It's a scary first look at this return of the horror icon.
Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for David Gordon Green's Halloween, direct from Uni's 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. First impression? Your thoughts?

Looks like a good scary time.

Life-long Halloween fan here. Even though I like most of the sequels, I'm glad they've retconned the series. It's become far too convoluted, and I never liked the brother/sister aspect. Carpenter being involved gave me hope, and this actually looks pretty good. The mask is the best it's looked since the original, and using the original score instead of an updated version is the right way to go. God I hope it's good.

I echo most of these comments, maybe not liking some as the sequels as much, but also hoping this is good and hoping it completely ends the story

Yeah, I'm really curious to see how they end it. I would rather it be a one and done film, but I'm sure the Akkad family will want to continue the franchise. Which is unfortunate, but seemingly inevitable.

Optimistic, yes. Hard to top the original, but i'm in.

Well damn... After being cautiously optimistic for a while, now I'm just plain ol' optimistic. But based on the looks of this trailer they might aswell have just called this thing "Halloween H40: 40 Years Later".

It does have something of the first film and I'll probably enjoy watching it, but I just can't see the reason to make this than money grab ...

"Oh wow, I wonder how they're going to - oh, huh. I guess Michael Myers was actually behind the door..."

I'm worried about a lot of things. The poster is lazy and Michael flipping his knife like a butterfly knife is super human. But as it stands, JC's Halloween is my favorite movie of all-time. I'd be damned if I don't see this at TIFF.
