Universal released Monday the final trailer for the highly-anticipated movie “Halloween Kills“.
The movie picks up the aftermath of the events of 2018’s “Halloween“, which saw Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) dealing with post-traumatic stress disorder 40 years after surviving Michael Myers’ original murder spree.
It also will follow Myers who survived the burning house of Strode, which caught fire at the end of the 2018 movie, and how Strode, her daughter Karen (Judy Greer), and granddaughter Allyson (Andi Matichak) teaming up to take him down.
The latest sequel in the slasher franchise, which began with 1978’s “Halloween”, will also see Will Patton as Deputy Frank Hawkins, Anthony Michael Hall as Tommy Doyle (who was previously portrayed by Brian Andrews in the original 1978 movie), and Nancy Stephens, who reprises the role of Marion Chambers.
It will also feature Nick Castle, Kyle Richards, Charles Cyphers, Robert Longstreet.
The 1978 movie introduced the audiences to Myers who wreaks havoc on the town of Haddonfield, Ill., after escaping from prison on Halloween night.
The movie was a huge box office hit, earning $255 million globally and solidifying its place as the highest-grossing installment in the series. The franchise has collectively allocated $640 million worldwide.
The production is the 12th movie in the franchise. It is produced by Jason Blum through his Blumhouse Productions banner, alongside Malek Akkad and Bill Block.
