June 8th, 2018 - The first trailer for David Gordon Green's highly anticipated Halloween
has finally arrived.
is set 40 years after Carpenter’s original and finds Jamie Lee Curtis reprising her famous role as Laurie Strode, who once again must come face to face with the serial killer Michael Myers.
“The original is all about tension. Laurie Strode doesn’t even know that Michael Myers exists until the last minutes of the movie,” says Green's co-writer on the film and longtiem collaboratoer, Danny McBride. “So much of it you’re in anticipation of what’s going to happen and the dread that Carpenter spins so effortlessly in that film, I think we were really trying to get it back to that. “We’re trying to mine that dread. Mine that tension and not just go for gore and ultra-violence that you see some horror movies lean on.”
