New Halloween Movie's Director Thinks There Will Be Sequels

New Halloween Movie's Director Thinks There Will Be Sequels

The film's budget was reported around $10 million.

You can catch the movie featuring actress Jamie Lee Curtis, who plays Laurie Strode, starting October 19. It is directed by David Gordon Green from a script he wrote with Danny McBride.

If its opening does fall on the high end of this $50 million-$70 million range, it will be the second highest debut ever for a horror movie, far behind IT's massive $123,4 million debut from last September. That puts Halloween on track to enjoy one of the biggest R-rated horror openings of all time, right alongside It, Hannibal (which earned $58 million) and The Nun (which earned $53 million). So its understandable Michael Myers fans want to know if they'll see anything toward the final moments of the new Halloween film.

Jamie Lee Curtis has said her new Halloween film is timely because women are identifying with trauma as a result of the #MeToo and Time's Up movements.

The movie is the 11th installment in the storied Halloween franchise, which started nearly exactly 40 years ago with director John Carpenter's original 1978 classic Halloween.

Short review: The Hate U Give is the one movie everyone should see - it is a story that makes headlines every day and will give viewers a glimpse of what people who are living this go through. A direct sequel to the 1978 film, Halloween scrubs the rest of the franchise continuity (including Curtis' other four appearances as Laurie), and introduces her as a survivor grappling with PTSD decades after the events of the original film.
