Halloween fans have been waiting months to get our first official look at the upcoming Halloween Kills, with today seeing two major reveals about the project that were equal parts disappointing and exciting. The first piece of news was that the film, which was slated to hit theaters this October, is going to instead hit theaters on October 15, 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic preventing theaters from operating at full capacity in time for the fall. However, the disappointment was quickly followed with a piece of good news, as the first teaser trailer for the new film was released.
Understandably, it was a whiplash of emotions from fans, first having to cope with an extended wait to see the film, which also included the understanding that this would be the optimal way for the largest audience possible to enjoy the film, only for the release of the teaser to make fans even more excited with any hint of what the filmmakers had in store for us.

Worth the Wait
It is okay. I want the full Halloween experience like I did in 78 & if I have to wait, that is okay. I want to Scream my arse off. Can't wait for it to come out. https://t.co/g1wgXQCHab— Dan Holmes (@hollywoodholmes) July 8, 2020
Just Stream It
Eh, I can’t really get excited to watch a trailer for a movie that won’t come out for another year, why not just release it on Halloween Night streaming? We’re gonna be stuck home anyway.— RD Pom (@RyanPomin) July 8, 2020
The "Halloween Kills" delay sucks but it is understandable.
The 2021 release will however mark the 40th anniversary of "Halloween II".— ♠️ Lord Raiden ♠️ (@DarienDude) July 8, 2020
Absolutely gutted that Halloween Kills has been delayed a full year but that teaser is pretty good. I look forward to maybe seeing a full trailer in the coming months and maybe some BTS action as well.— Turk Turkleton. (@FIRWilf) July 8, 2020
