Universal Pictures has released a new promo clip and poster focusing on the trio of women of the Strode family, the main characters in the horror film Halloween Kills. The one-minute promo, entitled “Warriors,” centers on the story of the film’s three main women with Jamie Lee Curtis as Laurie Strode and her daughter Karen, played by Judy Greer, and her grandson Allyson, played by Andi Matichak. Halloween Kills will release in theaters and will also stream on Peacock on October 15, 2021.
While the poster also has the same tone, the studio does not display the figure of the killer Michael Myers at all. They present the three main female characters in this poster with a burning house in the background.
In the upcoming sequel, Haddonfield Memorial Hospital will return to the setting of the film with Anthony Michael Hall returning to play Tommy Doyle, who first appeared as a child in the Halloween film who was one of Laurie Strode’s foster children. Jamie Lee Curtis will once again return as Laurie Strode. Judy Greer will also return as Karen Strode, as well as Andi Matichak as her daughter, Allyson. Other confirmed cast members include Kyle Richards as Lindsey Wallace, Laurie’s foster child in the 1978 version of Halloween. Robert Longstreet will play Lonnie Elam and last but not least, Jibrail Nantambu is also returning as Julian from the 2018 film.
David Gordon Green back in the director’s chair for Halloween Kills and will be back for the third film of the new trilogy, Halloween Ends. However, it is not clear at this time when the final film will start production, but it will most likely start next year. Green and Danny McBride decided to abandon all films in the franchise, except for John Carpenter’s 1978 first Halloween.
Film Halloween which was released in 2018 takes place four decades after Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) managed to escape the brutal murder of Michael Myers. Laurie now lives in a heavily fortified home on the edge of Haddonfield, where she has spent decades preparing for Michael’s potential return. After being locked up in an institution, Myers manages to escape and cause havoc in the same town that became his “prey” decades earlier. Laurie now faces an eerie atmosphere as the deranged killer returns for her and her family.
