Halloween Kills was originally supposed to be released in cinemas back in 2020. However, the pandemic then happened and the film got pushed back. It’s now scheduled for October 15th, 2021.
The film has been directed by David Gordon Green, and he wrote it with Danny McBride. They wrote the 2018’s Halloween which was a box office hit, taking home more than $255 million on a $10-15 million budget.
It looks like Halloween Kills will be going straight to streaming
Here’s what John Carpenter had to say about Halloween Kills being released on streaming services rather than in cinemas:
Halloween may be shared that way because theaters are dead. It’s just the reality right now. And it’s a tragedy, but it’s true. We just have to face it. The studio did contact David and I, and they had us put off the new one by a year in the hope that things got better. So we’re still hoping it will get better.
This, to me, sounds like a shame because Halloween Kills is the sort of movie people would love to go and watch together in the cinema. However, he does have a point and they just need to get this movie out now. It was supposed to come out last year.
