Fans who were part of SDCC 2018 got the opportunity to get a look at an extended clip from Halloween. While the rest of the world is yet to see it, journalists in attendance had shared descriptions of the footage which seemed to have captured the audience’s attention by giving a glimpse of Myer’s random brutality.
During her presence at SDCC’s Hall H panel, Jamie Lee Curtis said that “[Laurie Strode] She has carried the trauma and PTSD of someone who was attacked randomly,” talking about the brutal event that occurred when Strode was 17 years old.
Though she has suffered in the hands of Michael Myers, she isn’t the helpless babysitter from the 1978 slasher classic. Strode has since been preparing for the day when Myers will return and to kill him for what he did to her. But in 40 years since the incident, Strode seems to have made it her life’s goal to end Myers, which has also taken a toll on her life.
Speaking to EW (In Comic-con bonus issue), Curtis spoke about Strode and how she realizes that he is still a problem. “She knows he is a threat,” said the actress.
“Her daughter was taken from her, her marriage has ended, she has no friends, because her focus is that,” explained Curtis.
Director David Gordon Green also had a few words to share about the movie. Clearly, his intention is to hype longtime fans with what they can expect from the direct sequel.
“He finds his way back into some baby-sitters’ households, with a little swagger,” said the director.
Halloween is set to hit theaters on October 19, 2018. Currently, fans are awaiting the release of the second trailer but the studio is yet to reveal when it can be expected. It is possible that the trailer would be dropped without a prior announcement.
