Last week, producer Jason Bloom -- founder and CEO of Blumhouse Productions -- teased the impending arrival of the trailer for the highly anticipated Halloween revival. Now, it appears he's making good on his promise, because he's since revealed that the first look at the Jamie Lee Curtis-led horror film will debut on Friday, June 8.
On Twitter, Blum posted a trio of tweets, which collectively spell out the trailer's release date.

The extensive retcon raises the question whether Jamie Lee Curtis’ Laurie Strode is still the long-lost sister of masked killer Michael Myers, a plot point originally introduced in 1981’s Halloween II and continued in Rob Zombie’s 2007 Halloween reboot. Regardless of Strode’s connection to Myers, family looks to play a major theme in the upcoming horror film, with Judy Greer cast as Strode’s daughter Karen and Andi Matichak cast as Strode’s granddaughter Allyson.
Here is the film's recently released synopsis:
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.
Debuting October 19, the latest Halloween is directed by David Gordon Green, from a script written with Danny McBride and Jeff Fradley.
