Halloween fans have been patiently waiting for a first official look of this years film, and we may not have much longer to wait. Maybe this coming Friday, June 1st, when UPGRADE, another BLUMHOUSE PRODUCTIONS film, is released.
Jason Blum founder and CEO of BLUMHOUSE PRODUCTIONS and producer of the upcoming Halloween, tweeted a response to fans that have been eagerly awaiting a first look of the film and have been taking note to the lack of promotional material for a film that’s only months away from premiering.
Here’s Jason Blum’s response:
“I want to assure #Halloween fans that we hear you. We have read your comments,” Blum wrote. “And I can assure you that early June will be a happy time for you or perhaps I should say for most of you.”
With Blum saying early June it is a rather vague estimate, but there is another film that is being produced by BLUMHOUSE PRODUCTIONS and debuts June 1st, UPGRADE.
If the trailer were to debut with this movie it wouldn’t be a bad way to put meat in the seats and add a little hype to it with UPGRADE’s already mostly positive reception. It currently sits at a 73% fresh rating at Rotten Tomatoes.
Debuts October 19, the latest Halloween is directed by David Gordon Green (Pineapple Express) from a script written with Danny McBride and Jeff Fradley.
Halloween, takes place forty years after the original. The upcoming Halloween, features Jamie Lee Curtis returning to the role that made her a household name as Michael Myers returns decades later to terrorize Laurie Strode, her daughter Karen (Judy Greer), and granddaughter Allyson (Andi Matichak).
After his wife is killed during a brutal mugging that also leaves him paralyzed, Grey Trace (Logan Marshall Green, PROMETHEUS) is approached by an inventor with an experimental cure that will “upgrade” his body. The cure – an Artificial Intelligence implant called STEM – gives Grey physical abilities beyond anything experienced and the ability to relentlessly claim vengeance against those who murdered his wife and left him for dead.
