Jamie Lee Curtis Shouts Out Peacock as Halloween Kills Scares Up Simultaneous Release

Jamie Lee Curtis is one of the most iconic Hollywood stars, and she’s also a leading animal rights activist. She’s also trapped in a film that’s being released simultaneously on Halloween, but doesn’t have enough time to promote it. Must be tough, right? Well, Curtis wanted to let everyone know that peacocks are not, in fact, scary.

Halloween is a fun time for dressing up in costume and going door to door, but sometimes it’s not the best time for a scare at all. On Tuesday, October 31, a new wave of Peacock Central is coming to a movie theater near you.  The movie in question is Halloween, a sequel that in some ways is a sequel in name only.  The original Halloween was released in 1978 and spawned two sequels, one of which was released in 2009.  This year’s reboot, however, entirely ignores the original and was actually released in 2007.  The movie, which is actually based on a popular horror novel by John Carpenter, is set in the same general timeframe of the original and was also released

It’s that time of year again: the deep, dark, and creepy part of the year known as Halloween. The one time of year where we unwind and take a break from the stress of school, work, and everything else we have going on. But, we can’t let the stress of it all get to us, as we have to keep our sanity and be as happy as possible as we prepare for the big day.

 

In a new video, Jamie Lee Curtis praises Peacock, the NBCUniversal streaming service where Halloween Kills had a day-and-date premiere, encouraging fans to “scream your butts off together” in theaters and at home on October 15. The sequel to 2018’s Halloween, which is also a 40-years-later follow-up to John Carpenter’s original, will debut on Peacock on the same day it premieres in cinemas, according to Universal. Curtis revealed a seasonal Peacock logo in a video posted to his social media in support of the film’s transition from a theatrical-only to a hybrid streaming release after a year-long delay from October 2020.

“On October 15, you may get your family and friends into your van and go to the movies, where you can buy popcorn and candy and scream your heads off. On October 15, you may see the new Halloween — Halloween Kills — on Peacock “In the video, the Laurie Strode actress explains. Curtis ends on a positive note “Everyone have a wonderful Halloween. Keep yourself protected.”

On October 15, Peacock Premium members will get access to the slasher sequel at no extra cost. Peacock Premium is $4.99 a month for the ad-supported tier and $9.99 per month for the ad-free Peacock Premium Plus as of September 2021. 

The new film starts off where the David Gordon Green-directed slasher left off: with the Strode ladies leaving masked killer Michael Myers (James Jude Courtney and Nick Castle) to burn. Laurie leads a vigilante mob to track down the unstoppable Shape and put an end to his reign of horror once and for all in Halloween Kills. 

“When you consider that [Halloween 2018] was about Laurie’s tragedy, isn’t that the next one? It was mostly focused on Laurie Strode, but there were many more individuals who had the same fate as Michael Myers in 1978 “Curtis previously told Jess Cagle of SiriusXM. “All of those individuals were returned to us. So Kyle Richards, who portrayed Lindsey [in the first Halloween], returned, and we have the character of Tommy, as well as other characters such as Marion, the nurse [Nancy Stephens as Marion Chambers], and all of the victims of the trauma, and the Halloween Kills film is about a mob.”

“So what I’ll tell you is that what we were witnessing across the nation of the power of voices, large groups of people getting together outraged at a set of circumstances, that’s what the movie is,” Curtis of Halloween Kills said. “The film is about a gang.”
