MOVIE NEWS – Exclusive CinemaCon footage of Halloween Ends shows Laurie facing Michael Myers for the last time – viewers said it was a shock to see…
The first footage from the upcoming horror sequel and Halloween franchise finale, Halloween Ends, in which Laurie Strode, and Michael Myers face off for the last time, was shown at CinemaCon 2022. The footage was described by ComicBook.com, courtesy of Cam Bonomolo, who was present at the event, and viewers can look forward to seeing the two horror icons clash one last time.
“44 years ago, the face of fear was born,” began the CinemaCon exclusive trailer.
What follows are excerpts from previous “Halloween outings,” including “Classic footage from John Carpenter’s HALLOWEEN,” as well as a murder montage that “shows the victims of Michael Myers on Halloween night ’78 and 2018.”
“Every scream. Every scare. Every slash. Has led to this,” the trailer continues. It then begins with some new footage showing Laurie Strode breathing “heavily as she hides in a dark closet” while “Michael Myers stalks a kitchen with a knife.” The clip then swings into action when “Laurie lunges at Michael and slashes at him” in what is described as “a BRUTAL fight.”
Michael Myers then “grabs Laurie’s hair and slams her face first into a glass cabinet. Laurie grips her knife and stabs it into Michael’s hand.” The trailer “ends with Michael on the table. Laurie stands over her prey with a butcher knife. HALLOWEEN ENDS.” After the final moments of Halloween Kills, the brutality will probably be the most crucial thing on Laurie’s mind, making Halloween Ends the most personal and violent episode of the series.
Halloween Ends, directed by David Gordon Green and written by Green, Danny McBride, Paul Brad Logan and Chris Bernier, will be released in theatres on October 14, 2022, under Universal Pictures.
