After a break of nine years, the longest in the history of the franchise, Halloween returns with a new installment. The new movie, simply titled. Hallowe'en, is a major change in the pace of the franchise, as it marks a return to the basics. Instead of continuing with the series of resumption of two films that began in 2009, or continuing with the original work of eight films, Hallowe'en 2018 ignores the entire franchise, except the original 1978, which acts as a sequel to that movie. So with that case, will there be another Hallowe'en continuation? Or is this new film destined to close the 40-year franchise once and for all?
If you're a fan of the Halloween franchise, you know that this series has had more fake deaths than Michael Myers himself. After the first two films, we tried to restart a little with Michael Myers Halloween III: Season of the Witch in 1982. The movie was not popular, and it would be six years earlier. Halloween 4: The return of Michael Myers got the franchise again. Halloween 5 It arrived the following year, but the negative reception again led to a prolonged break. Halloween 6 It did not debut in theaters until 1995. That movie took the series off the lanes to Fantasyland, so a soft restart acted as a third third installment of the franchise instead of Halloween III was unveiled in 1998 in Halloween H20. That movie had its own sequel four years later with Halloween: resurrection, a movie that marked the end of the original franchise after 24 years. But Halloween did not stay dead for long.
The series was completely restarted with 2007 Hallowe'en, a reimagining of the original movie. That was followed by its own sequel in 2009, Halloween 2, which until now had acted as the closest franchise. Now, nine years later, Halloween returns with … Hallowe'en. So now that we are up to date, what does this new film about the future of the franchise mean in the future? Are more sequels planned or is the new film intended to be more appropriate for the franchise?
Although it seems that the new film is destined to act as a swan song suitable for the franchise, correcting the perceived errors of the many sequels, that is not necessarily the case. This is Hollywood of what we are talking about here, so if Hallowe'en is successful at the box office, then you can bet that the franchise will continue. The new film is produced by Jason Blum, who has made a name in recent years as the king of low-budget, high-profit horror franchises, and is likely to seek Hallowe'en The same treatment. "I'd love to do sequels, and I hope we do a sequel and we'll do a sequel if
The[[Hallowe'en]performs, "said Blum Forbes in September. "We're not going to decide if we do a sequel or not until we see the reaction to this movie, but I really hope to do it."
The first reviews for the new movie have been very solid, and the box office forecast looks good, so at this point a sequel seems to be a sure thing. 40 years and 11 movies later, the Halloween franchise shows no signs of slowing down, which means that fans can almost certainly expect Michael Myers to grow back in the near future.
