AceShowbiz - Universal has released new trailer teasers for its reboot of "Halloween (2018)". The new teasers reveal the first footage of the movie's first trailer, which is scheduled to arrive tomorrow. The footage offers the look at the historic rematch between Jamie Lee Curtis' Laurie Strode and her old enemy Michael Myers a.k.a. The Shape.
The first teaser, coming via the actress herself, sees her character walking to a wooded area where two mannequins are waiting as she hums an eerie song. Judging by the look of the mannequins, Laurie must have used it as a target for her shooting practice which seemingly focuses more on the head and the chest of the target. It seems like she has been preparing to take down the masked killer.
"Wishes do come true... @halloweenmovie #HalloweenMovie," Jamie captions the short footage.
Meanwhile, the other teaser sees the showdown between Laurie and Michael. "I've waited for him, [and] he's waited for me," intones Laurie. The footage also features Laurie going face-to-face with the killer as she's about to stab him with a knife. The latter stops her hand before the footage cuts to an end.
Jamie's character was killed in 2012's "Halloween: Resurrection", but the new movie opts to ignore the storyline in the previous movies of the franchise. The official logline reads, "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."
Also starring in the upcoming movie are Judy Greer, Andy Matichak, Will Patton, Virginia Gardner, Dylan Arnold, Drew Scheid and Miles Robbins. Nick Castle will also be returning to reprise his role as The Shape with stuntman and actor James Jude Courtney helping bring the role to life.
The first movie's director John Carpenter will executive produce and serve as creative consultant alongside Jason Blum. "Halloween" is set to arrive on October 19 in U.S. theaters.
