First ‘Halloween’ Trailer Reveals the Return of Michael Myers

Michael isn't her brother, she points out (this was only established in Halloween 2 so the trailer is making it very clear this is knocking out all further sequels including H20) and he's been in prison for 40 years. I certainly hope so. Michael Myers - no, not the Austin Powers one - is returning to the big screen for the first time in almost a decade (or 16 years for purists who discount Rob Zombie's Halloween films), and the first trailer has just stalked its way online.

But with Blumhouse ("Get Out", "Split") involved and a script that won over Carpenter (who is an executive producer on the movie), the maestro of the franchise is back, which has given this "Halloween" a real sense of excitement. There's also plenty of menace and scares-in short everything you'd want from a new Halloween movie.

Michael Myers, the infamous masked murderer and the face of the Halloween film franchise, has returned in his full freaky glory in the first trailer for director David Gordon Green's forthcoming Halloween reboot.

The movie also stars Judy Greer (Arrested Development) as Laurie's daughter Karen Strode and Will Patton (The Punisher) as Hawkins.

Clinton is now on the promo circuit thanks to his new book with James Patterson , The President Is Missing . I meant it then, I meant it now", Clinton said.

There's a couple of harks back to the original movie including a good bit with a sheet, and another with a cupboard, as well as a variation on that classic Carpenter score.

This new film will feature a new, more physical approach to portraying Michael Myers, with stuntman James Jude Courtney taking over a majority of the responsibilities for the character.

Halloween is due for release on 18 October in Australia, and 19 October in the United States and UK.

But after his escape, he has only one thing on his mind: finishing what he started all those Halloweens ago.
