Sadly, it’s no longer just summer movies that are facing delays as a result of COVID-19. This week Universal and Blumhouse have announced that the upcoming Halloween sequel, Halloween Kills, is being pushed from this October to next October in order to avoid a “compromised theatrical experience.” The movie will bring back Jamie Lee Curtis as Laurie Strode along with several other legacy characters including Tommy Doyle (Anthony Michael Hall), Lindsey Wallace (Kyle Richards), Marion Chambers (Nancy Stephens), Leigh Brackett (Charles Cyphers), and Lonnie Elam (Robert Longstreet). The good news is that the announcement came with the first teaser for the upcoming movie, which seems to pick up immediately where the last film left off. Halloween Kills will now hit theatres in October 2021; check out the teaser and the official statement after the jump and let us know what you think.
