Halloween is almost upon us. In anticipation of next month's release, Jamie Lee Curtis shared a new poster for the David Gordon Green film on Twitter. The Tweet also teased a second trailer for the film tomorrow.
“Face your fate. New trailer tomorrow. Same conflict today,” she captioned the post.
The poster itself is the main course, and it features a side profile of Curtis in the foreground with Michael Myers’ classic mask lingering in the back. It’s entirely in black and white aside from the release date: October 19. The film will be a direct sequel to the 1978 original, ignoring all other entries in the series. It will premiere this month across the festival circuit.
2018’s Halloween is set to be the first in the franchise from popular production company Blumhouse, and even the title’s font on the poster bears their creative footprint. It uses longer, blockier letters than the traditional posters in John Carpenter’s series, closer in design to Blumhouse’s posters for Get Out and Upgrade.
The film 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, the original Michael Myers, sharing the role with stunt actor James Jude Courtney. The film is executive produced and scored by John Carpenter.
