“HALLOWEEN” COMES EARLY
FIRST TRAILER FOR DANNY MCBRIDE’S HALLOWEEN DROPS
John Carpenter’s Halloween debuted in 1978 and now 40 years later the franchise returns to its roots, courtesy of Danny McBride. After much speculation, the first trailer has finally dropped. According to McBride, this new Halloween film is a direct sequel to the first; despite it legitimately being 40 years after the fact.
In McBride’s film, Laurie Strode (played by a returning Jamie Lee Curtis) has spent 40 years preparing for Michael Meyers to break out of the asylum he was being held in. When Meyers reappears, Laurie rushes to the aid of her reluctant daughter Karen (Judy Greer) and Laurie’s granddaughter Allyson (Andi Matichak).
There’s not much else revealed, but then again the story of Michael Meyers is one that is steeped in bad blood within the family. Quite frankly, placing Michael Meyers in any other type of scenario doesn’t suit the character anyway.
Hopefully the movie does well and by the looks of the trailer, it just might restore the glory of the franchise. This is what Danny McBride had to say:
“In this day and age, Hollywood is tapping into so many beloved franchises that it seems like any time anything comes out there’s the contingency of people that are stoked, and the contingency of people that are fucking pissed off and saying you ruined their childhood somehow. I hope this thing tips more into the world of people liking it. I hope we don’t ruin too many childhoods.”
John Carpenter was kept as a creative consultant for the film and even created the score. The new Halloween debuts October 19th.
