Universal Pictures have just released the first official poster for the new Halloween movie, which is due out on 19 October 2018.

Produced by the original director and master of horror, John Carpenter, Halloween will see Jamie Lee Curtis reviving her iconic character, Laurie Strode as she prepares to do battle one last time with Myers.

Wait, didn't Laurie die at the end of 2002's Halloween: Resurrection?

Absolutely, but let's pretend none of that happened.

As it turns out, this latest installation in the massively successful franchise will be disregarding quite a few of the sequels and Rob Zombie remakes in order to give us exactly what we want.

Directed by David Gordon Green (Pineapple Express), who penned the script with Danny McBride (This Is The End, Alien: Covenant), the movie is also set to star Judy Greer as Laurie's daughter Karen, and Andi Matichak (Orange is the New Black) as Laurie's granddaughter, Allyson.

So without further ado, check out the first official poster for the movie:
