John Carpenter’s Ringtone Is The Halloween Theme Music

You can call it narcissism; we’ll just call it good taste. At the San Diego Comic-Con, director David Gordon Green alleged that John Carpenter uses the classic theme music from the 1978 Halloween as his ringtone – a score that Carpenter just so happened to compose himself.

Of course, the legendary filmmaker’s recently been at work composing the score for Green’s upcoming Halloween, a sequel to the Carpenter-helmed original of the same name, but he clearly still has a soft spot for what’s arguably his best-known piece. In one of his first meetings with the director, Green recalls how their discussion was interrupted by the unexpected sound of eerie and ominous synths.

“In the middle of the meeting his phone went off and it was the theme from Halloween, and I almost lost it.”

‘Halloween’: Jamie Lee Curtis on Why David Gordon Green’s Bloodcurdling Sequel Is the Perfect Film for the #MeToo Era
Jamie Lee Curtis announced she would reprise her first film role less than three weeks before allegations against Harvey Weinstein ignited the #MeToo movement (see tweet below). With decades of experience in an industry notorious for sexism, workplace harassment, and worse, she sensed that for women, change was afoot. At Universal Pictures’ Friday evening San Diego Comic-Con (Sdcc) presentation, she discussed why her “Halloween” character’s turmoil is as relevant as it gets.

Halloween Comic-Con Footage Has Michael Myers Killing Anyone in His Path

Halloween Comic-Con Footage Has Michael Myers Killing Anyone in His Path
Halloween 2018 left a horrifying mark on San Diego Comic-Con today when some extended footage of Michael Myers killing at random was unveiled. While reactions to the recently released promotional material for the film have been mixed between older and younger horror fanatics, the new Comic-Con footage seems to have bridged the gap and brought both factions together. Unfortunately, the new Halloween footage has not been released online, but we have a pretty good description about what to expect.

The new Halloween 2018 Comic-Con footage takes place on the last day of October, which should be pretty obvious. There's kids out trick or treating with their voices echoing around the streets. A group of kids in costume are walking when they suddenly bump into Michael Myers, who then walks past the kids to grab a hammer from a garage. The Shape then walks around in a house, picking up a knife in the kitchen.

Jamie Lee Curtis Embraces Sobbing Fan, Who Says ‘Halloween’ Saved His Life

Jamie Lee Curtis Embraces Sobbing Fan, Who Says ‘Halloween’ Saved His Life
“Halloween” may be an escapist horror pic, but for one man at Comic-Con, it proved to be a lifesaver.

During a question and answer session at Universal’s Hall H presentation on Friday, an attendee choked up while telling star Jamie Lee Curtis that he escaped a life-threatening incident in which another man cut his phone line and tried to break into his house.

He said he thought to himself, “What would Jamie Lee Curtis do?” And ran out into the street, screaming for help.

“To make a long story short, I’m here today because of the way that you portrayed Laurie Strode,” he said. “I’m a victor and not a victim.”

“You’re the only reason I came to Comic-Con this year,” the man confessed.

Curtis left the stage to embrace the fan and gave him a long hug, kissing him on the cheek. “These kind of emotions are real,

M. Night Shyamalan’s ‘Glass’ Trailer Debuts at Comic-Con

M. Night Shyamalan’s ‘Glass’ Trailer Debuts at Comic-Con
James McAvoy brought personality to San Diego Comic-Con — 24 personalities, to be exact. At a Friday Comic-Con panel, Universal released the trailer for “Glass,” the sequel to 2016’s “Split,” starring McAvoy as Kevin Wendell Crumb, who uses different personas in order to abduct women.

In “Glass,” Sarah Paulson makes her debut in the “Unbreakable” franchise as Dr. Ellie Staple, a psychologist who studies people who believe they are superheroes. Bruce Willis reprises his role from “Unbreakable” as superhuman security guard David Dunn, and Samuel L. Jackson returns as Elijah Price — two of Dr. Ellie’s patients, along with Wendell.

“The three of you have convinced yourselves you have extraordinary gifts like something out of a comic book,” Dr. Staple says to her subjects.

Much of the trailer sees McAvoy’s chameleon character adopt the mannerisms of several different people. Sometimes he is a woman named Patricia, other times he is a

Blumhouse’s Halloween Was Originally Going To Incorporate The Sequels

Connecting the dots between Halloween films is a complicated affair that’s about to get even messier. In a franchise already populated with reboots, retcons and abruptly abandoned plot threads, Blumhouse Productions’ upcoming sequel is set to disregard everything in the series timeline except for John Carpenter’s classic 1978 original, including the famous sibling twist of 1981’s Halloween II.

But in a interview published this week with The Hollywood Reporter, writer-director David Gordon Green suggested that the next Halloween was originally planned to slot in more neatly with the various sequels that came before.

“We started incorporating all the follow-ups and then it got overwhelming trying to engineer something that made sense. Some of the plot points became a little stretched thin as the franchise went on. And so ultimately finding those frustrations, McBride came to me and just said, ‘What’s the Michael Myers movie that you really want to see?
