The New Halloween film is shown off at Cinemacon!

Halloween is coming back, and Jamie Lee Curtis was on hand at Cinemacon to show off the new horror film!

Per The Hollywood Reporter:

Jamie Lee Curtis on Wednesday brought scares to CinemaCon in Las Vegas as she previewed the first footage from her Halloween sequel.

“Everyone in my family turns into a nutcase this time of year,” says the granddaughter of Curtis’ Laurie Strode at the beginning of what looked like a fully finished trailer.

Strode has outfitted her house with weapons and traps in case killer Mike Meyers returns, which would allow her to finally get revenge for what he put her through four decades prior.

“Every night, I prayed that he would escape,” says Strode in the footage. “So that I can kill him.”

After Meyers escapes the mental institution, it looks like she is getting her wish. The footage featured plenty of jump scares with a particularly terrifying sequence in a gas station bathroom.

“Except for Star Wars, I can’t think of another movie where the same actor is playing the same part 40 years later, and that in and of itself is worth celebrating,” said Curtis as she introduced the footage with producer Jason Blum, who talked about how John Carpenter’s original Halloween (1978) started his favorite genre, the slasher flick.

Curtis has played Laurie Strode in multiple Halloween films over the years since the original introduced the world to the mask-wearing mass-murderer Michael Myers. Of the new movie, the actress said, “It’s old school meets new school with Laurie at the center of it. And it’s going to scare the living shit out of all of you.”

David Gordon Green is directing the new movie from a script co-written by him and frequent collaborator Danny McBride.

Universal has slated the film for an Oct. 19 release.
