Halloween Kills is set for release on Oct. 16. However, we don’t have an official trailer for the film yet. What exactly is going on?

Halloween Kills is set for release on Oct. 16. This film has been on everyone’s radar since it was announced last year. Anticipation for the sequel to the successful Halloween 2018 is at an all time high. As of yet, we haven’t seen a trailer for this upcoming Blumhouse feature.

What exactly is going on? According to Jason Blum in a recent interview with Fandom, the producer revealed that the hold-up is due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Theaters are in the process of re-opening and the landscape has changed.

Capacity is limited and social distancing rules are being implemented. Although Halloween Kills is still on track for the fall, Blum admitted that the future is still uncertain and if there is no way for the film to have a theatrical run, then his production company doesn’t want to release a trailer. Which makes sense, when you think about it.

Although that isn’t the news that fans wanted to hear, unfortunately that is the current state of affairs. So, for right now, the trailer is on hold.

However, the producer was extremely confident about the movie and David Gordon Green’s interpretation of John Carpenter’s legendary franchise. Halloween 2018 was a box office success and managed to honor the original film while still being fresh enough to capture potential new fans.


This particular outing is bringing back some familiar faces. Of course, Jamie Lee Curtis will be reprising her role as Laurie Strode. Former cast members, Kyle Richards (Lindsey Wallace), Charles Cyphers (Leigh Brackett) and Nancy Stephens (Marion Chambers) also return to the franchise.
