First Halloween trailer tease scares up close look at Michael Myers' mask
Slasher reboot stars Jamie Lee Curtis and is released Oct. 19
Halloween franchise slasher icon Michael Myers may be a seemingly immortal force of nature. But Myers’ mask is subject to the vicissitudes of time, as demonstrated by a just-released teaser for director David Gordon Green’s upcoming Halloween reboot, a snippet of footage which gives us a close look at what Myers’ facial covering looks like in 2018.
Green’s Halloween is a sequel to John Carpenter’s original 1978 Halloween, which essentially ignores that horror classic’s many sequels. The film stars Jamie Lee Curtis — who is reprising her iconic role as the Myers-battling Laurie Strode — as well as Judy Greer, Andi Matichak, Will Patton, Virginia Gardner, and Nick Castle. The film is released Oct. 19, 2018 and is written by Green, Danny McBride, and Jeff Fradley.
