Halloween Kills Reveals First Footage As Film Is Delayed a Year

2018’s Halloween was a record-breaking success when it hit theatres, grossing $255 million globally against its $15 million budget. Following the immense success of the soft reboot, moviegoers have been anxiously waiting for the sequel, Halloween Kills. John Carpenter, the director behind the 1978 original film, has finally shared the film’s first footage, although it is accompanied with some bad news. You can watch the clip below.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, Carpenter announced that the sequel has been pushed back a year to October 15, 2021. “We write this to you heartbroken over the fact that the delay of our film is even a discussion, but there’s one thing that a career in the film industry has prepared us for, it is the unexpected.”

Carpenter also added: “If we release it in October of this year as planned, we have to face the reality that the film would be consumed in a compromised theatrical experience. After weighing our options, we have chosen to push the film’s theatrical release by one year.” On the bright side, the renowned director revealed that Universal has agreed to an IMAX presentation of the film too.

Halloween Kills
Following the immense success of 2018’s ‘Halloween’, moviegoers have been anxiously waiting for the sequel, ‘Halloween Kills’.

Directed by David Gordon Green, 2018’s Halloween earned praise for its commitment in staying true to the 1978 classic while continuing a story that felt organic to its predecessor. Halloween Kills is set to reunite Carpenter, Green, Jamie Lee Curtis, Judy Greer and Andi Matichak. The recently released teaser suggests that the sequel will pick up immediately from where the 2018 film left off, revealing fire trucks speeding to the burning Strode house, but Laurie (Jamie Lee Curtis) and her family know that can only mean Michael Myers has a chance at survival.
