The new Halloween was a big success this weekend, grossing an estimated $US77.5 ($109) million over its first weekend. It’s the 11th film in the Halloween franchise, but only the second in the story it’s telling, and that story has an explosive ending that we’re excited to dissect now that the film is out.
The latest entry in the Halloween franchise is both a dazzling tribute to the original film as well as a unique, standalone story. It's filled with deviations from the familiar slasher formula, but it also carefully incorporates an adoration of its predecessor that feels respectful but not overpowering. By balancing these two seemingly divergent concepts, director David Gordon Green has made a truly special horror sequel.
So, instead of getting bogged down with surprise siblings, immortality, and all the other crazy reveals from the Halloween series, Curtis is focusing on Laurie Strode’s trauma and healing process. And the cast and crew were right alongside her.
Video: To call the first trailer for Universal and Blumhouse's Halloween reboot "scary" is an understatement. It isn't just horrific or unsettling - it's something much more that will leave you feeling cold, terrified, and hyped as hell to see the movie.
The new Halloween movie is sidestepping everything in the franchise that's happened since the first movie - and the multiple timelines that have wreaked havoc on Halloween continuity - which means it's time to say hello... err, again to Jamie Lee Curtis' horror icon Laurie Strode.
With Jamie Lee Curtis recently confirming that she's returning to the Halloween series to play Laurie Strode in the upcoming horror reboot, more casting news was bound to follow. And the first new tidbit couldn't be more awesome: Judy Greer may be heading to Haddonfield to play Laurie's daughter, Karen.
Turns out the new Halloween film won't be a straight-up remake after all. It's going to take place after the first two, keeping the story of the original "Night He Came Home" intact.
