David Gordon Green’s Halloween Trailer


Now that we’ve experienced Rob Zombie’s reenvisioning of Michael Myers, it is time for David Gordon Green, Danny McBride and Jason Blum to take the Halloween franchise back to its roots with a new movie that reconnects with the 1978 original but ignores most of the other sequels. Once again titled simply Halloween, the movie brings back Jamie Lee Curtis as Laurie Strode, preparing for her final confrontation with Michael 40 years later, while Judy Greer plays her daughter and Andi Matichak plays her granddaughter. Clearly they are placing a heavy emphasis on authenticity and reverence to the original, but there is one big change here: the axing of the brother-sister relationship. While some fans may be upset by that, it should also help take the story down some interesting new paths. Halloween hits theatres on October 19th; check out the first trailer after the jump and let us know what you think.

Around the Web:

    It looks more pedestrian than what I’d expect from Green and McBride. Still worth seeing, probably.

  • Jameson

    This looks legit scary. I’m in. Both this and the Suspiria trailer were way better than I was anticipating.

    Looks cool to me! Could be a bit more eerie in the Cinematography department but overall a nice trailer. Plus it’s got JLC so this might be a movie watch for me!

  • Tim

    This definitely looks grounded in reality since they are ignoring all the sequels. Trailer overall is pretty so-so. Did like the insane inmates and the teeth dropping.

    Bummed by the cinematography, maybe just a weak trailer and the feel of the movie will be different, but aesthetically it seems very generic. Was this shot digitally? I remember Pineapple Express looking really good, so hoping the final product is better.

  • Lori Cerny

    1:50 She doesn’t have a square to spare.

    BUT, I much prefer her natural short pixie haircut. The long hair is like they are trying too hard to reference the original film.

    Awful trailer. JC is trolling the world.
