After years of false starts and an eventual change of studio, the next installment in the Halloween franchise is finally upon us. We have the newly minted trailer to share with you and we are almost certain you will like what you see. But don’t take our word for it, check it out for yourself in the player, below!

The first trailer for Halloween is scary, atmospheric, and perhaps most importantly features Jamie Lee Curtis. Be sure to let us know your thoughts in the comments section!

As we’ve mentioned previously, the new film will not be a remake. It will, however, ignore everything to come after the first. It’s something like a direct sequel that picks up 40 years later.

Danny McBride (Alien Covenant) is cowriting the film with David Gordon Green, who will be at the helm. And John Carpenter is on board to executive produce. The picture is slated to hit theaters on October 19th, 2018.

Blumhouse, Miramax, and Trancas International Films are partnering to produce the latest installment in the series.

Prior to losing the rights to the franchise, Dimension was in development on a new Halloween film with Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton. Halloween 3D was reportedly set to pick up after the events of the second film and would not tie in to Rob Zombie’s reboots.

Make sure to stay tuned to the site in the coming months for more updates as they are announced.
