Just to get you even more excited, here’s a reminder of just how wonderful that theme to Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers actually is.

Michael Has Come Home! First Official Photos From “Halloween”!

Universal Pictures and Blumhouse just released the first photos from the new Halloween movie and holy shit guys… Michael has finally found his way home and he is looking PISSED.

Seen first via USA Today, the following pictures give us a better look at an aged Michael Myers (portrayed once more by original Shape Nick Castle) and Laurie Strode (resurrected by scream queen Jamie Lee Curtis). The trailer, which drops this Friday, has given way to a surge of anxiety from fans all over the world as the hype for this one is almost as huge as last year’s adaptation of IT. And who wouldn’t be excited to have a good chunk of the original cast and crew back handing out Haddonfield boners to fans of the William Shatner nightmare?!

Check it out, guys!

In addition to Curtis, Halloween stars Judy Greer, Andi Matichak, Will Patton, and Virginia Gardner. Original Halloween director John Carpenter is back to executive produce and give us another nightmarish soundtrack for us to obsess over.

Halloween opens October 19, 2018. Stay tuned for the trailer this Friday!!

 

First Official Halloween 2018 Movie Poster Highlights an Aged Michael Myers

Here it is Haddonfield heads! The first official Blumhouse Halloween movie poster just dropped and Holy Shatner, Michael is showing his age! In which case, I myself can completely appreciate as the sequel is set in the present 40 years after the first Haddonfield Halloween incident in 1978, (which makes Michael 61 in the film).

First Official Halloween 2018 Movie Poster Highlights an Aged Michael Myers

While we don’t know a ton of details on what to expect from Blumhouse’s new take on the slasher grand-daddy helmed by David Gordan Green and co-written by Danny McBride and Jeff Fradley, we do know all other Halloween films, as we know it, are being disregarded, including the whole Myers and Laurie being related angle. However, the 2018 movie will pay homage to them in some sort of way, presumably with some fun Easter Eggs. Reports have come in stating that Jason Blum has seen a cut of the film in recent weeks and is “extremely happy” with the result.

The film has Halloween alumni Jamie Lee Curtis (Laurie Strode) returning to settle a score one more time with Myers, who is being taken on by the original Shape himself, Nick Castle along with James Jude Courtney.  Judy Greer is also cast as the role of Laurie’s daughter, Karen Strode. The Godfather of Myers John Carpenter is heading the film’s score along with an Executive Producer credit with fellow producers, Jason Blum and Malek Akkad.

Halloween will be in theaters on October 19th.
