Just over a month ago, Jason Blum and Jamie Lee Curtis dropped by Universal’s CinemaCon and slaughtered audiences with the surprise trailer debut for the upcoming David Gordon Green-directed and John Carpenter-produced Halloween film. Within minutes of the presentation’s conclusion, con-goers stormed social media to share their terrified first reactions and describe exactly who walked out of there that night and warn the rest of the horror community exactly where he’s going, so to speak.[relatedArticle-0]
With CinemaCon long in the books and no official word beyond speculation on when we might catch our first glimpse of Halloween, fans have grown increasingly restless and the public demand for a proper trailer release had reached near meltdown-levels. Just in the nick of time, Blumhouse CEO Jason Blum took to Twitter and announced when the trailer would finally make its public debut in the following tweets.[blockquote-0][scripttag-0][blockquote-1][scripttag-0][blockquote-2][scripttag-0][blockquote-3][scripttag-0][blockquote-4][scripttag-0]
