Earlier today, Universal brought the goods to San Diego Comic-Con. During a very exciting panel, the studio offered up a look at two of their most anticipated releases. Up first, of course, was Glass. The threequel’s been building a steady amount of buzz for months now and today, they finally unveiled the first trailer, giving us a glimpse into what looks like another dark, twisted thriller from the mind of M. Night Shyamalan.
But there was another, perhaps even more anticipated film in attendance, too. Its name? Halloween. Yes, David Gordon Green’s upcoming sequel was present at Universal’s panel and though the footage they showed off hasn’t made its way online just yet – and it probably won’t, unfortunately – what we’re hearing about it has us very excited indeed.
Seen below is a sampling of what folks are saying on Twitter and it’s all positive, with those who saw it calling the clip “shocking,” “unsettling” and “incredible.” Of course, it’s best to remember that what was on display was only a very small sampling of the film, but between the impressive first trailer and now these reactions, it certainly seems like Halloween‘s shaping up to be something truly special.
New clip from #HalloweenMovie shows Michael at his most brutal in a stunning tracking shot seeing him entering multiple houses and killing people!

David Gordon Green showed a new clip from #HalloweenMovie involving a home invasion to get a knife and then putting that knife to horrific use. Shocking. Also, John Carpenter’s score is immensely unsettling. pic.twitter.com/ivhVHSrNVs

Loved the #Halloweenmovie clip, felt like it was right out of the original movie

Excited yet? We sure are, and if the clip that was shown at San Diego Comic-Con happens to make its way online, we’ll certainly let you know. In the meantime, we’ll sit here anxiously waiting for Halloween to creep into theaters worldwide on October 19th, at which point we’ll know if David Gordon Green and Danny McBride’s decision to render all previous sequels non-canon was the right move.
