Halloween Kills is making a move to Peacock in addition to it’s theatrical release on October 15th.
It’s a sign of the times and the confidence in theater profits. The COVID-19 pandemic is still affecting movies around the world. There’s no word on how much this deal was worth, but it’ll surely put more eyes on the film. David Gordon Green directed the 2018 Halloween and returns for this film alongside the writers Green, Danny McBride, and Scott Teems. That film was a huge box office success pulling in more than $200 million worldwide. For those who haven’t been in tune with Halloween Kills, here’s the synopsis:
The Halloween night when Michael Myers returned isn’t over yet.
Minutes after Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis), her daughter Karen (Judy Greer) and granddaughter Allyson (Andi Matichak) left masked monster Michael Myers caged and burning in Laurie’s basement, Laurie is rushed to the hospital with life-threatening injuries, believing she finally killed her lifelong tormentor.
But when Michael manages to free himself from Laurie’s trap, his ritual bloodbath resumes. As Laurie fights her pain and prepares to defend herself against him, she inspires all of Haddonfield to rise up against their unstoppable monster. The Strode women join a group of other survivors of Michael’s first rampage who decide to take matters into their own hands, forming a vigilante mob that sets out to hunt Michael down, once and for all. Evil dies tonight.
