New Halloween Kills Trailer Premieres at CinemaCon

New footage from the highly anticipated sequel, Halloween Kills, premiered at CinemaCon recently. From the sounds of it gave fans a lot more to enjoy, and speculate on, until the October 15th release date.


The new trailer includes more footage of Michael wreaking havoc in Haddonfield and Laurie attempting to finally unmask Myers to "see the life leave his eyes" whilst in hospital. Here's the full trailer description from ScreenRant-

"Opens on pumpkin, kids running around and two of them swinging in a park. A woman asks, 'Hey, what are you guys doing out here? Are you alone?' A kid responds, 'There's a creepy man in a white mask, and he's trying to play hide and seek with us.' The woman asks where he is, and then sees Michael in the distance. Michael jumps on top of a nearby van and attacks the people inside. Another woman tries to shoot him but is out of bullets. Smash-cut to the house fire from the end of the previous film. Then we see the police interrogate the Strode family about the fire. They talk about Michael, but one of the cops says Michael is still alive. Laurie says in a voiceover, '40 years ago, the boogeyman came for us. We are the survivors of Michael Myers.' We then see the survivors from the past films, including Anthony Michael Hall as the new version of Tommy. We then see Allyson trying to attack Michael but loses the fight. Karen yells, 'You wanna fucking kill someone? Take me!' Another scene of Laurie in the hospital with a bloody knife, saying, 'I wanna take his mask off and see the life leave his eyes.' Trailer ends on Laurie trying to take off his mask."

As to when the footage will finally be released is anyone's guess at the moment. Me personally, I've got a feeling Blumhouse will unveil it at this years online event BlumFest which takes place October 1st.

I'm very intrigued to say the least and I for one cannot wait to see Kills release this October. And for those of you worrying that the first full trailer for the film spoiled a lot of the film, it hasn't. According to Myers actor James Jude Courtney the footage shown in the trailer is only the tip of the iceberg. Speaking at Flashback Weekend in Chicago recently-

"Honey, the trailer was the tip of the tip of the tip of the iceberg. I’m serious. Halloween Kills is freaking brutal. It’s brutal. It took me a couple months to recover, swollen knees, you know. After you guys see the film, you ask me this question again and I’ll tell you about the ass kicking I got."

Halloween Kills releases in cinemas everywhere October 15th 2021. The sequel to 2018's Halloween will follow an injured Laurie Strode as she leads a vigilante mob to hunt down unstoppable killer Michael Myers and end his reign of terror once and for all.
