                            Halloween: New trailer shows Jamie Lee Curtis back as Laurie Strode, and she's out to get Michael Myers for good

"He is a killer, but he will be killed tonight." Those are the final words by Jamie Lee Curtis in the new trailer for 'Halloween'. Curtis returns to the 'Halloween' series 40 years after the original movie, bringing back her character of Laurie Strode.

By the looks of the latest preview for the new 'Halloween' film, directed by David Gordon Green disregards all of the previous sequels, as well as the Rob Zombie-directed reboots. While those films technically don’t exist in this current canon, the new film will "pay homage to every Halloween movie, while going back to the roots of John Carpenter’s original vision", according to Danny McBride, who co-wrote the script with Gordon Green.

In terms of the continuity of the Halloween Cinematic Universe, this new movie will follow Laurie Strode as she comes face-to-face with Michael Myers for the first time in four decades. Now frayed and older, the trailer shows that Laurie is not messing around as she arms herself to the teeth with as many guns as she can find. Of course, it's not a 'Halloween' trailer without a few jump scares featuring the iconic Michael Myers (played by Nick Castle this time), who roams around town murdering random victims, dropping fistfuls of teeth on the floor, and terrifying unsuspecting people who’re simply trying to enjoy their Halloweens.

Joining Curtis is Judy Greer as Laurie’s daughter and Andi Matichak as her granddaughter. John Carpenter is an executive producer and will also contribute the music.

The new Halloween hits theaters on October 19 via Blumhouse Productions in association with Miramax. Watch the new trailer for the film below.
