Jason Blum is gearing up for a jam-packed 2021 with the final Purge film and a new Halloween entry awaiting release. With the first trailer for Halloween Kills dropping this week, it seems like it will be quite the thrilling entry, and mega-producer Jason Blum appears to feel the same.
In an interview with Discussing Film, Blum teased Halloween Kills and said the promo material for the new film is about to begin in a big way. With an original release date of last October, fans of Halloween have waited for way too long. and Blum teased that the wait isn’t the only reason to be pumped.
“I don’t think the long wait is why it’s worth it,” says Blum. “It’s worth it because the movie is spectacular, and people will be as angry as they are that they haven’t gotten to see it yet. When they see it, they’ll be calm because the movie is great. David Gordon Green did an amazing job.”

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.
