‘Halloween Kills‘ the latest installment in the ‘Halloween’ franchise was scheduled to hit theaters October 6, 2020.
But thanks to the ongoing pandemic, Universal Pictures has decided to be extra cautious. They just announced that they’ve pushed back the release date a full year. The movie will now be released October 15, 2021.
Halloween Kills is the sequel to Green’s 2018 ‘Halloween,’ which opened to $76.2 million (the highest opening in the horror franchise’s history) and ended its run with $159 million in the U.S. and $255 million globally.
The 2018 ‘Halloween’ film was made on a budget of just $10 million, so yeah, making over $250 million at the box office was a huge success.
And that’s probably why they’re being so cautious with this sequel. They need this film to perform well in theaters. Opening this fall is a little too risky for them, considering cases are still going up across the country as we enter mid-July.
The good news is that they released a teaser for the film to get you all excited.
