Universal Picture has released the official trailer for the horror film, Halloween. Jamie Lee Curtis returns as Laurie Strode, only this time she’s a grandmother who admits to praying every night for Michael Myers to escape just so she can kill him. In the trailer, Curtis’ Laurie warns, “You don’t believe in the boogeyman. You should.”
The full two and a half minute trailer shows Michael Myers locked up when he’s approached by a man holding his the iconic mask. We then learn the bus carrying prisoners, including Michael, crashed and he’s escaped. Michael proceeds to rack up more kills as he tracks down Laurie on Halloween night.

The Plot: Jamie Lee Curtis returns to her iconic role as Laurie Strode, who comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers, the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago. Inspired by Carpenter’s classic, filmmakers David Gordon Green and Danny McBride crafted a story that carves a new path from the events in the landmark 1978 film.
