two eagerly-anticipated sequels are coming to comic-con international in san diego next month.
universal has announced both halloween and glass will each have panel presentations in hall h at sdcc this july. the two films first debuted new footage at cinemacon in april to positive response from attendees, and next month's panel looks to unveil even more from the upcoming movies.
halloween is a follow-up to the original 1978 horror classic featuring the return of definitive scream queen jamie lee curtis as laurie strode. ignoring the events of all the sequels, the revival takes place forty years after the first film as masked slasher michael myers returns to haddonfield for one final confrontation with strode. the film is currently in post-production with original filmmaker john carpenter composing the film's score.
glass is the sequel to 2016's split which revealed in its final moments to be set in the same cinematic universe as filmmaker m. night shyamalan's 2000 film unbreakable. the upcoming sequel looks to firmly link the two films as bruce willis' david dunn takes on both james mcavoy's the beast and samuel l. jackson's mr. glass.
while specifics on both comic-con presentations are unclear at this time, glass is not expected to have an advance screening for the audience while halloween should have much more of the film to share after this month's trailer debut.
debuting on october 19, halloween is directed by david gordon green from a script written with danny mcbride and jeff fradley. it stars jamie lee curtis, judy greer, and andi matichak with nick castle and james jude courtney sharing the role of masked killer michael myers. the film is executive produced and scored by original filmmaker john carpenter.
directed and written by m. night shyamalan, glass is slated for release on january 18. the film stars james mcavoy as kevin wendell crumb/the beast, bruce willis as david dunn, anya taylor-joy as casey cooke, samuel l. jackson as elijah price/mr. glass, and sarah paulson as ellie staple.
