Halloween poster launch gives us our first proper look at Michael Myers

The first poster for the new Halloween movie keeps it dark and moody

David Gordon Green and Danny McBride’s take on Halloween is six months away but we’ve got our first look at Michael Myers courtesy of the film’s first poster.

The new take, which comes from Blumhouse, will be a return to the more grounded feel of the first and will reportedly be ignoring pretty much everything that happened in the franchise after Halloween 2. Jamie Lee Curtis is back in her legendary final girl role of Laurie Strode, and John Carpenter is on board as an executive producer (and may be doing the soundtrack). The movie also stars Judy Greer, Will Patton, Nick Castle, Andi Matichak and Omar J Dorsey.

“Jamie Lee Curtis returns to her iconic role as Laurie Strode, who comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers, the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago.”

Halloween is released on 19 October. Keep up with the latest horror news with the new issue of SciFiNow.
