The Halloween Kills movie trailer picks up right after the ending of Halloween (2018), hinting at how Michael Myers survives to kill another day. In 2018, Michael Myers and final girl Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) returned in a new slasher flick that retconned all previous Halloween sequels. It served as both a reboot of sorts and a continuation to the original 1978 John Carpenter film, picking up with the main characters decades later. Laurie suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder as a result of the events of the original Halloween, and it's caused tension with her daughter Karen (Judy Greer) as she tries to have a relationship with her granddaughter Allyson (Andi Matichak).
Directed by David Gordon Green, Halloween was such a success that two sequels were put into development, which have since been titled Halloween Kills and Halloween Ends, seemingly indicating the movies would put a new capper on the storied horror franchise. Though exact story details for Halloween Kills and Halloween Ends are unknown, it was presumed that Michael Myers would return in some form despite the 2018 film's ending. Now the first trailer for Halloween's sequel is released.
It's too bad this teaser was released along with the announcement that the Halloween Kills release date has been delayed to 2021, and Halloween Ends to 2022, meaning both with arrive a year later than previously expected.
