Blumhouse founder Jason Blum recently teased the first trailer for the Jamie Lee Curtis starrer Halloween Kills.
2018 saw Jamie Lee Curtis returning to the role of Laurie Strode in Halloween, the 11th film in the horror franchise. The film earned more than $250 million and was a success largely due to producer Jason Blum, who has practically reinvented the horror genre in the last decade. Best known for creating low-budget films that have larger than life ideas, Blum specializes in giving directors (and franchises) a fighting chance of succeeding in a crowded market. While promoting his latest feature You Should Have Left, Blum revealed that the first trailer for Halloween Kills is on its way.
When asked by Entertainment Weekly what he could divulge about Jamie Lee Curtis’ Halloween Kills, Jason Blum discussed how they intend on releasing a trailer soon and have the horror sequel out by the end of the year.
“Well, we’re trying to get that trailer out and trying to get that movie out before the end of the year. That’s our hope, dream, and plan. We’ll see.”
Halloween Kills is currently scheduled to hit theaters in October, though that could certainly change considering the COVID-19 pandemic has radically shifted 2020’s theatrical release calendar. Theatres are slowly opening around the world so Blum may not have much to worry about after all. As for the film’s trailer, the upcoming [email protected] seems to be the perfect venue to launch the first look for one of the world’s most popular horror franchises. Jamie Lee Curtis could easily debut the trailer for Halloween Kills at the virtual convention. For now, we’ll just have to wait and see what Blum has in store for Halloween Kills‘ theatrical rollout.
