Iconic villain Michael Myers has been unmasked in the newest Halloween Ends trailer, as the ultimate final girl, Jamie Lee Curtis, prepares for her last outing as Laurie Strode.
The sequel, set to be released on October 14, will be the final film of David Gordon Green’s new franchise trilogy, after 2018’s Halloween and 2021 release Halloween Kills.
The latest teaser for the film follows Laurie as she seeks bloody revenge against the maniacal villain who has terrorised her for decades.
Beginning with Jack-o-Lanterns taking centre screen – an image that has been present in all of the franchise’s films – a voiceover reveals that four years have passed since Michael vanished without a trace.
However, he soon claims his first new victim in tense scenes, before stalking Laurie, her granddaughter Allyson, and their fellow residents of Haddonfield.
After the death of her daughter, Karen, in Halloween Kills, Laurie vows revenge and shoots at him.
‘Maybe the only way he can die is if I die, too. It all ends now,’ she suggests as the trailer descends into gory mayhem.
The final scene sees Laurie standing over the killer with a knife, with cameras cutting to the title of the film just before we get a sneak peek of his identity.
Jamie was joined by James Jude Courtney, Nick Castle, Andi Matichak, Kyle Richards, Judy Greer, Rohan Campbell, and Will Patton in the cast.
Original Halloween director John Carpenter was on hand to produce the sequel.
Jamie spoke about filming her last scenes for the upcoming movie, admitting that she wept while saying goodbye to the iconic character that she first played in 1978.
‘I realised that would be the last time I ever saw Laurie Strode,’ she told Total Film.
‘It was very powerful for me. I wept. David [Gordon Green] wept. We all recognized that moment, that it was the wrap for Laurie Strode and me.
‘And this community of artists who made these movies. It was a big deal.’
Halloween Ends will be released in cinemas on October 14.
