Halloween 2018 - First Movie Trailer

We can't recall the level of anticipation for a trailer's release ever being quite this high, but it is certainly that with the tweets and "grams" having reached a pinnacle this week as the release of the first trailer for the Halloween "reboot" has finally arrived. We received a short one minute preview yesterday that teased the return of Michael Myers with a clip showing now-grown Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) taking target practice on a bullet hole-ridden mannequin.

And Universal/Blumhouse just dropped the full trailer today in which we learn that Laurie has cautiously waited and diligently prepared for this night for the last 40 years. But now she also discovers that Michael Myers (Nick Castle) too, has been waiting. And after the deranged killer unexpectedly escapes from a prison bus, the two finally meet again.

This new iteration ignores all of the previous Halloween prequels, sequels, offshoots and mixups with something that is more of an update and a sequel at the same time. Producer Jason Blum says the new Halloween will “respect the DNA of the franchise”, while also bringing  “something totally new to it and we’re really very very excited for people to see it.”

Here's a look at the disturbing first trailer for Halloween:
