Universal Bowing ‘Halloween Ends’ in Theaters and on Peacock Oct. 14

In a blow to the theatrical market, Universal Pictures Aug. 23 announced it would make the final installment of the “Halloween” movie franchise, Halloween Ends, available in theaters and on the Peacock streaming platform concurrently beginning Oct. 14.

After 45 years, one of the studio’s most acclaimed franchises is set to reach its conclusion as Laurie Strode (Jamie-Lee Curtis) faces off for the last time against the embodiment of evil, Michael Myers.

Curtis has portrayed Laurie for more than four decades now, one of the longest actor-character pairings in cinema history. When the franchise relaunched in 2018, Halloween shattered box office records, becoming the franchise’s highest-grossing chapter and set a record for the biggest opening weekend for a horror film starring a woman.

Halloween Kills generated more than $132 million at the global box office, including $92 million in North America, despite also being available to stream on Peacock.

Four years after the events of 2021’s Halloween Kills, Laurie is living with her granddaughter Allyson (Andi Matichak) and is finishing writing her memoir. Michael Myers hasn’t been seen since. Laurie, after allowing the specter of Michael to determine and drive her reality for decades, has decided to liberate herself from fear and rage and embrace life. But when a young man, Corey Cunningham (Rohan Campbell; “The Hardy Boys,” “Virgin River”), is accused of killing a boy he was babysitting, it ignites a cascade of violence and terror that will force Laurie to finally confront the evil she can’t control, once and for all.

Halloween Ends co-stars returning cast Will Patton as Officer Frank Hawkins, Kyle Richards as Lindsey Wallace and James Jude Courtney as The Shape.
