Universal Pictures has released a final trailer for Halloween Ends, which brings the franchise full circle for the alleged final battle between Michael Myers and Laurie Strode.
The new trailer harkens back to John Carpenter’s original Halloween with a handful of shots mirroring the slasher classic, while we also get more Jamie Lee Curtis, who is famously missing from most of Halloween Kills.
The new trilogy is jam-packed with irritating new mythology and this trailer injects a few more morsels, including Laurie’s realization that maybe Michael can’t die unless she does. She also warns that this incarnation of Michael Myers is the most dangerous yet!
This is Laurie Strode’s last stand.
After 45 years, the most acclaimed, revered horror franchise in film history reaches its epic, terrifying conclusion as Laurie Strode faces off for the last time against the embodiment of evil, Michael Myers, in a final confrontation unlike any captured on-screen before. Only one of them will survive.
Icon Jamie Lee Curtis returns for the last time as Laurie Strode, horror’s first “final girl” and the role that launched Curtis’ career. Curtis has portrayed Laurie for more than four decades now, one of the longest actor-character pairings in cinema history. When the franchise relaunched in 2018, Halloween shattered box office records, becoming the franchise’s highest-grossing chapter and set a new record for the biggest opening weekend for a horror film starring a woman.
Four years after the events of last year’s Halloween Kills, Laurie is living with her granddaughter Allyson (Andi Matichak) and is finishing writing her memoir. Michael Myers hasn’t been seen since. Laurie, after allowing the specter of Michael to determine and drive her reality for decades, has decided to liberate herself from fear and rage and embrace life. But when a young man, Corey Cunningham (Rohan Campbell; The Hardy Boys, Virgin River), is accused of killing a boy he was babysitting, it ignites a cascade of violence and terror that will force Laurie to finally confront the evil she can’t control, once and for all.
