Though masked killer Michael Myers is sitting out this year’s Halloween much like the rest of the world, fear not: The next entry in the “Halloween” franchise, “Halloween Kills,” has a new teaser trailer.
Directed by David Gordon Green, this is the 10th installment in the series originated by John Carpenter and serves as a direct sequel to his 2018 “Halloween.” Written by Green, Danny McBride, and Scott Teems, “Halloween Kills” launches October 15, 2021 from Universal Pictures. Watch the trailer below.
During a recent interview with SiriusXM’s Jess Cagle and co-host Julia Cunningham (via Collider), returning star Jamie Lee Curtis talked about her role as survivor Laurie Strode and teased the movie’s timely resonance with the current moment.
“What we were seeing around the country of the power, of the rage of voices, big groups of people coming together enraged at the set of circumstances, that’s what the movie is,” she said. “The movie is about a mob. And so it’s very interesting because it takes on what happens when trauma infects an entire community. And we’re seeing it everywhere with the Black Lives Matter movement. We’re seeing it in action and ‘Halloween Kills’ weirdly enough, dovetailed onto that, proceeded it, it was written before that occurred, but then of course, so when you see it, it’s a seething group of people moving through the story as a big angry group, it’s really, really, really intense. It’s a masterpiece.”
