A sequel to John Carpenter‘s 1978 film Halloween was directed by David Gordon Green and released in 2018. Michael Myers managed to break out of the mental institution where he had been locked up 30 years after the events of that fateful Halloween night and began his reign of terror over the residents of Haddonfield once more.
This marked the formal beginning of the film's retcon of the franchise. In the sequel Halloween Kills, the original survivor Laurie Strode, played by Jamie Lee Curtis, was hospitalized with her family at the same time when the residents of the suburban town rose to confront Michael for good.
The movie came to a close with many characters having been murdered, Michael having the potential to be a supernatural person, and the serial murderer still being at large.
Because we are all excited to see how Green wraps off his version of the series, we have done some Michael-like stalking of our own and are now prepared to address any pressing questions that Halloween fans may have concerning the release date of Halloween Ends.
The Release Date of Halloween Ends
The good news is that we already know when Halloween Ends will be available to the public. Slasher movie enthusiasts, you should put October 14, 2022, on your calendars because David Gordon Green's next and final Halloween film will be released in theatres on that day.
On the other hand, it is unknown whether the movie will also be made accessible on streaming services on the same day it is released in theatres. Peacock's Halloween Kills, distributed in theatres, had the highest-grossing launch for a streaming day-and-date premiere, grossing $50.4 million on its first weekend.
This made it the highest-grossing debut ever for a streaming day-and-date premiere. Because we are still amid a worldwide epidemic, it would make sense for Universal and Blumhouse to investigate the possibility of streaming the premiere of Halloween Ends, considering the popularity of the film's prequel.
Trailer for Halloween Ends
Universal Pictures has published the trailer for Halloween Ends. Only a few seconds long, this teaser suggests that the long-running tale between Michael and Laurie is about to come to a conclusion and previews an epic showdown between the two, accompanied by the classic theme music. The Halloween Ends teaser trailer can be seen right above.
Plot Speculation for Halloween Ends
There is a lot of speculation about what the Halloween Ends storyline may be, although it hasn't been made public yet. The film's director, John Carpenter, has defined it as “a departure from the others,” although it's unclear what that means.
In the same way, the conclusion of Halloween Kills leaves many issues unanswered in anticipation of the next installment. Those loose ends are expected to be tied up in a tidy little bow at the end of this film.
Despite all the violence, Michael manages to flee, leaving behind a trail of destruction in his wake. The townspeople of Haddonfield fail to stop Michael and are killed in the process in Halloween Kills. Allyson's mother, Karen, Laurie's daughter, passed away. In addition, Tommy Doyle has perished. Almost everyone we encountered in Halloween Kills perished.
We have no clue how the characters will stop Michael now that the town is in ruins, and it is revealed that he may be supernatural. Allyson and Allyson are likewise likely to seek revenge for Karen's death.
Jamie Lee Curtis and Dana Green have also been making some significant indications about what the next Myers adventure would be like. First and foremost, we know there will be a time gap between Halloween Ends and Halloween Kills. Green said in an interview with Uproxx that the new film would explore the ramifications and aftermath of the epidemic.
At least four years after the events of Halloween 2018 and Halloween Kills, Halloween Ends will occur (which were set on the same night). Regarding the future of Laurie's character, Curtis has already given us some hints as to what she may be going through shortly.
It was announced in July 2021, when the star was promoting Halloween Kills, that the film will likely be the final time we see her as Laurie Strode. Also, she recently told The Illuminerdi that the end of Halloween is “likely to make people extremely unhappy.” People are going to be excited about it, the actor said. “It's going to enrage people. “It's a fitting conclusion to this trilogy.”
Does this imply that Michael will be the one to put an end to Laurie's life? We'll have to wait and see, but if the renowned Scream Queen dies, we anticipate her to go out with a bang. Curtis recently posted a picture of herself getting ready for filming with the comment, “Old dog. New tricks.” In light of this, we should expect a slew of high-quality action scenes.
According to horror veteran John Carpenter, Michael Myers may still have some life in him, who recently hinted that he may still be around for another film in this series. As we await Universal's official description for Halloween Ends, we'll keep you posted.
The Cast of Halloween Ends
It appears that the cast of Halloween Ends has yet to be finalized. But Jamie Lee Curtis and Andi Matichak, who will return as Laurie Strode's granddaughter Allyson, are sure to return.
Nick Castle and James Jude Cortney will share the roles of our main murderer Michael when they return. For now, it is unknown how many additional victims or new cast members there will be in the forthcoming murder spree.
The cast members for Halloween have been confirmed:
- Jamie Lee Curtis (as Laurie Strode)
- Andi Matichak (as Allyson)
- Nick Castle and James Jude Courtney (as The Shape – or Michael Myers)
- Kyle Richards (as Lindsey Wallace)
There was a lot of violence in Halloween Kills and very few survivors. Lindsey, played by Beverly Hills Housewife Kyle Richards, was the only cast member to escape Michael's grasp. Halloween Ends was announced to include Richards' reappearance in December 2021, so Michael has another body to work with.
We'll keep you posted if any new information on the cast or crew is made public. Laurie and Allyson are planning to return enraged and determined to avenge Michael's death, at least for the time being.
Where to Watch Halloween Ends?
Halloween Ends, the film, will be released in theatres on October 14, 2022, as previously indicated. There is still no indication on whether or not Peacock will carry the action film.
All the current box office data speaks to a dual distribution approach. We recommend you wait to renew any subscriptions until you have talked with us again.
