Univeral Pictures UK Releases All-New Halloween Trailer

The new trailer features a cool recap of events from the first movie.

Flash back to the original Halloween in this new trailer from Universal Pictures UK, which details the 1978 incident in which Michael Myers returned to Haddonfield and went on his iconic killing spree. 40 years later, it jumps ahead to brand-new footage from the film, including a quick glimpse at what may be an unmasked Myers, although it does not explicitly say it's him. The remaining bits of the trailer are by no means a rehash of earlier trailers, either, as there is some new footage all around in this preview.

"Evil will be unmasked" is the featured tagline here, indicating that the face we quickly see turning towards the camera may, in fact, belong to The Shape himself. We'd be lying if we said this new trailer didn't give us goosebumps. See for yourself and give it a watch above.

Halloween sees Jamie Lee Curtis return 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. The film also stars Judy Green (Ant-Man, Jurassic World), Andi Matichak (Replicate, Orange is the New Black), Will Patton (Armageddon), and Virginia Gardner (Runaways), with Nick Castle (Escape From New York) returning as Michael Myers.

The film is directed by David Gordon Green and will release on October 19th.
