“Halloween Kills” is still currently targeted for a release date in 2020 with plans for a trailer to debut sooner rather than later…
Michael Myers return from the dead may be delayed just slightly.
“Halloween Kills” — the upcoming sequel to 2018’s “Halloween” — is currently scheduled for release on October 16 but due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, that date may get shifted.
Numerous films have already had their release dates pushed back and it appears “Halloween Kills” may be the latest after executive producer Jason Blum could only say he hoped the sequel would still land in theaters sometime in 2020 but no longer committing to the October date. If there is one piece of good news, however, Blum also teased a potential trailer for the film coming sooner rather than later.
“Well, we’re trying to get that trailer out and trying to get that movie out before the end of the year,” Blum told EW recently. “That’s our hope, dream, and plan. We’ll see.”
One piece of good news is that “Halloween Kills” already wrapped production late last year so the movie is finished but with movie theaters just preparing to open again in the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak, film studios are being cautious about major releases this year. Several major blockbusters including “Wonder Woman 1984,” “Black Widow” and the latest James Bond film “No Time to Die” have been pushed back from their original release dates.
While he wasn’t giving up much when teasing “Halloween Kills,” Blume did seem to hint at the film definitely following in the footsteps of its predecessor.
“If you liked the previous one, you’ll like this one, I’ll say that,” Blum added.
As for “Halloween Ends” — the third film in the trilogy that was supposed to be released in October 2021 — there’s no word yet on what will happen with that sequel. The movie was supposed to go into production this year but right now there’s no telling exactly when principle photography might start for the third and final film in the series.
