‘Halloween Kills’ Trailer Rated in Canada, Runtime Revealed

A full official trailer for this year’s highly anticipated sequel Halloween Kills is coming very soon, as evidenced by the trailer recently receiving a rating from Canada’s motion picture ratings organization, where its apparent runtime is also revealed.

The Alberta Film Classification Office has rated the Halloween Kills trailer “14A” (persons under 14 years old must be accompanied by an adult), and further lists the length of the trailer at two minutes and 37 seconds. The rating is dated June 18, when the trailer was first listed on the Alberta Film Classification Office’s official website.

It is listed as “trailer #2,” which is a bit confusing since there has been two brief teaser videos released so far, the first in July 2020 when the film’s release date was pushed back a year, and the second in October 2020 during Blumfest. It’s likely they are considering either the July “Let it burn” teaser or the October “Next Halloween” teaser to be “trailer #1.”

Halloween Kills has been rated “R” by the Motion Picture Association of America for “strong bloody violence throughout, grisly images, language, and some drug use.”

In addition to Jamie Lee Curtis reprising her iconic role as Laurie Strode, the cast includes Kyle Richards (read our interview here) reprising her 1978 role as Lindsey Wallace, Nancy Stephens reprising her 1978 role as Nurse Marion, Charles Cyphers reprising his 1978 role as Leigh Brackett, and Anthony Michael Hall, who will take over the role of Tommy Doyle from Brian Andrews, as well as Robert Longstreet as Lonnie Elam, and James Jude Courtney (watch our 2021 interview here) and Nick Castle continuing their collaboration as Michael Myers.

Also back from Halloween 2018 are Andi Matichak as Allyson, Judy Greer as Karen, and Dylan Arnold as Cameron Elam.

Directed by David Gordon Green from a script he co-wrote with Danny McBride and Scott Teems, Halloween Kills was filmed in Wilmington, North Carolina. John Carpenter returns as an executive producer and has performed the music for the film with his band mates Cody Carpenter and Daniel Davies.

Halloween Kills will be released on October 15, 2021.
