A short (but nerve wracking) trailer for the sequel to 2018's 'Halloween' has gone live.

'Halloween Kills' was meant to hit cinemas this month but the coronavirus pandemic meant the movie got postponed by a full year.

The reboot of 'Halloween' proved a major success a couple of years ago, making $255.5 million in the box office against a $10–15 million budget. It is the highest-grossing film in the franchise and the highest-grossing slasher film in unadjusted dollars. Moreover it had the best-ever opening for a film starring a lead actress over 55 years old.

The follow up sees Laurie Strobe (Jamie Lee Curtis) facing off Michael Myers (James Jude Courtney, Nick Castle) once again.

The mass murderer is out for revenge against her and her family, including daughter Karen (Judy Greer) and granddaughter Allyson (Andi Matichak), after they left him to burn alive in Laurie's home.

Familiar faces to the franchise back in the fold for 'Halloween Kills' include Kyle Richards, Nancy Stephens and Charles Cyphers.

Anthony Michael Hall and Robert Longstreet are new additions to the cast.

David Gordon Green, who helmed the 2018 movie 'Halloween', is back in the director's seat.

'Halloween Kills' is set to hit cinemas on October 15, 2021. Its sequel and the last in the trilogy, 'Halloween Ends,' will debut a year later on October 14, 2022.
